Student-centered environment

We put our learners first always. We provide a caring and safe environment in which they are valued and respected, and are able to thrive and be happy. We practice zero tolerance for bullying.

Management & leadership

We are part of the 40-year old trusted St. Mary’s Educational Society with rich experience and understanding of education. We have an engaged management and competent leadership team spearheading the school’s future.

Cambridge pathway school ( Early Years to Grade 10 )

We are one of the few schools in the city using the world-class Cambridge International Curriculum from upper Pre-primary to Grade 10. We offer a robust Cambridge program and IGCSEs (exams at the end of Grade 10).

International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) Grade 11-12

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a two-year educational programme for students of Grade 11 and 12. The programme provides an internationally accepted qualification for entry into higher education and is recognized by many universities worldwide.

Seamless progression with flexibility and choice

Students can choose the subjects they are truly passionate about and specialise in them from Grade 9 onwards. By offering the Cambridge and the IB curriculum, we provide consistency of teaching and learning approaches and seamless progression from one stage to the other.

Teacher’s professional development

We believe our teachers are our strongest asset and are fully committed to investing in their lifelong learning. We develop a systematic annual plan for Continuous Professional Development and our teachers participate in Cambridge and IB workshops, training events, by experts in diverse areas, self-study courses, online conferences and webinars round the year. We also provide on-going in-house training by experienced professionals employed by the school.


Our excellent infrastructure with spacious classrooms, labs, art and dance rooms, clean and hygienic dining areas, play areas, state of the art auditorium and lots of natural light creates a home away from home for the students. We follow high standards of safety and security on the campus and in school transport.

Transparency & ease of communication

We look at parents as our co-partners in education and maintain transparency and ease of access. We have a dedicated Parent Relations Team and deploy convenient channels of communication via the Institutional Resource Management (IRP) besides emails, telephone and SMS.

International mindedness

Along with offering international curriculum, we believe in providing practical exposure to our students and teachers to best practices around the world. We develop international school partnerships for collaborative learning, use resources such as Skype in the Classroom, FlipGrid, Edmodo and TED Talks for wider learning opportunities.

Support for mobile families

Sensitive to the challenges faced by relocating families, we extend our support by accepting admissions during the course of the year and provide extra learning support for such students
