Strengthened by a proud history that goes back over one hundred fifty years we have our eyes firmly set on the global legacy for the twenty first century. BCS, Shimla was one of the only boarding schools open during the pandemic due to strict hygiene rules.

Old Cottonians enjoy a top class academic training, but they are also principled, resilient, entrepreneurial and leaders of others.
