| Dear Parent,
Bishop Cotton School is located in the heart of the beautiful Shimla Hills, but within relatively easy reach of Chandigarh and Delhi. Strengthened by a proud history that goes back over one hundred fifty years we have our eyes firmly set on the challenges of the twenty first century.
To be educated at Bishop Cotton School is to enter the world beyond school with a range of qualities and skills. We hope to produce young men who are happy, resilient, self-motivated, confident and ready for any challenge that lies ahead. As a boarding community we aim to give the highest standard of pastoral care to every pupil who joins our family.
We believe in the pursuit of academic excellence and success, of course, but this is not at the expense of an all-round and broad education, as the two are not mutually exclusive. On the contrary they complement one another. Our education is determinedly holistic and values-driven. Our pupils flourish both in and out of the classroom and they develop skills, qualities and values that will lead to a successful life.
We passionately believe that the quality of an education is seen in the actions of the young men we produce and Bishop Cotton Alumni (The Old Cottonians Association) are an unbelievably eclectic and high achieving group of people who have achieved success in a wide range of fields throughout the world. The OCA provide mentoring and support to our students as they prepare for life beyond school.
To understand who we are and what we are about, come and see us. Walk through the Deodar forest and into our safe and spacious campus and you will be assured a warm welcome.
