The Swaminarayan School
Opposite the Swaminarayan Mandir is The Swaminarayan School, Europe's first independent Hindu school.
It was founded in 1992 by Pramukh Swami Mahraj. Since its creation, it has been visited by many famous people, including Tony Blair, General Sir Richard Dannatt GCB, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. The School Building was formerly part of Sladebrook High School which closed down in 1990.
It follows the National Curriculum, while promoting aspects of Hinduism and Hindu culture, such as dance, music and language.
The Swaminarayan School has achieved first place in London in the Independent Schools League Tables published by The Daily Telegraph on 13 January 2011. Nationally, the School was ranked fourth amongst all independent schools across the UK. <ref>UK top 10 schools across the sectors - Telegraph</ref><ref>The Swaminarayan School - Home</ref>
