Mr. Alok Chandra Deb was the founder of the Cambridge Schools. He worked as a
teacher at Dehradun with Col Brown’s School and the Gurkha Military Academy. He
founded the first Cambridge School on the 7th of April, 1931 in a small flat in Qutub Road,
Delhi. By the nineteen forties it had already established itself as one of the foremost
schools in the city. Cambridge School Delhi (thus named because it was the first school
to send students up for the senior Cambridge examination) acquired its own campus in
Srinivaspuri in early 60’s. The School’s motto is ‘We Learn to Serve’ and development of
character, curiosity and self-awareness were established as the three main aims of the
school. From humble beginnings, the Cambridge Schools today is amongst the finest
educational institutions, spread across New Delhi, Noida, Indirapuram and Greater
Noida.
Cambridge Schools are administered by the Society for the Advancement of Education
(SAE). (https://sae.cambridgeschool.edu.in/ ).

Cambridge School, Noida had a modest beginning in 1981 on an invitation from Noida

All Saturdays are off for the students. PTMs and activities are scheduled on 1st & 3rd Saturdays.

Cambridge Schools were established and are run by educationists. We believe in:

  • Secularism
  • Nurturing of individuals with a clear thinking and communication

  • ‘Service before Self’ is essential to building the qualities of empathy and community-consciousness.

Our Vision To be one of the leading schools in the community it serves, known and widely acknowledged as a secular institution which develops character and ethical leadership in its students in their pursuit of excellence.

Our Mission To nurture in children a strong sense of community, of justice and fair play, and allow them the opportunity to learn and express themselves in the ways they enjoy best, applying their learning to diverse and challenging situations to reach their optimum potential.

Our Values – Integrity, Perseverance, Empathy, Excellence, Courage.

Our Motto – ‘We learn to Serve’

Yes, the schools are co-ed from Nursery to Class XII.

The student teacher ratio is 40: 2

An effective ERP system serves as a channel of communication. Over and above this, information is shared through class WhatsApp groups, emails and sms on the registered phone numbers of the parents.

The average class size is between 35-40 students.

Classes I to V – In keeping with the NEP 2020, the new scheme of assessments being adopted by the Cambridge Schools moves towards shorter tests, based on smaller chunks of the syllabus. After a concept has been taught in class, children are given many opportunities to demonstrate their understanding. These assessments emphasise the application of knowledge and concepts learnt as well as the essential skills of different subjects. The idea is to minimise rote learning. The assessment for all subject areas is in four learning cycles every year. Parents receive a short report on each learning cycle.

Our request to parents is to not stress about the assessments, which will occur soon after every concept/ chapter is completed. Children are expected to be regular with their classwork and homework and are encouraged to ask their teachers if they have difficulties.

A uniform system of assessment and examination is for classes VI to XII. Our schools follow the CBSE prescribed syllabus for Secondary and Senior Secondary classes.

The School Management Committee (SMC) of the school meets frequently, where issues concerning the school are discussed and deliberated.

The prime focus of our campus security is complete perimeter sanitisation. Strict control on entry is a key to safety and the school ensures that parents, vehicles, vendors and service providers use separate manned gates. Round-the-Clock security of the campus is ensured through our strategically located CCTV cameras which are monitored continuously. The Transport vehicles provided by the school are equipped with a Vehicle Tracking System (VTS) and on-board cameras. Each bus is accompanied by a Teacher on a rotational basis and a female care giver/guard to pick up and drop children safely from their designated bus stops. Parents/Guardians are expected to carry the Escort Card at all times during the pick-up and drop. We also have a POCSO Committee set up in our schools.

While  the  protocols  evolve/change  based  on  government  directives,  all  COVID-19 precautionary measures as per directions/advisories issued by Central & State Governing authorities are in place at the school. In addition to the regular housekeeping through professional agencies and permitted cleaning agents, we have focused on stringent sanitization protocols. All our staff members are fully vaccinated. The School Safety Committee reviews the preparedness of the school at regular intervals.

Professional development of staff is an intrinsic and ongoing process which is conducted throughout the year. The school staff undergoes continual training to effectively teach the curriculum they have been assigned. They also attend the mandatory CBSE workshops on a regular basis.

Yes, an orientation programme is held for parents when their child joins the school and at the beginning of Class I. At the end of Class V, an orientation for parents is held to ensure a smooth transition of their ward to the middle school.

If a sibling is in the same school, will preference be given to the student for admission? And do you provide discounts in fee structure for siblings?

We give preference to siblings as we understand that it is difficult for a parent to send children to two different schools. However, the child must clear the process of admission.  We do not offer any sibling discount in fee.

Yes. A one-time charge of Rs.1000 for registration & Rs.25000 for admission is applicable respectively.

There are charges for optional facilities such as lab, trips & excursions and transportation. School also provides optional activities in the evening for a nominal amount.

No. We believe in maintaining a transparent system and hence all communication related to fees is uploaded on school website for parents to take an informed decision.

These activities are optional.

You are requested to pay the fees within 3 working days from the offer of admission.

The fee payable at the time of admission, is the one-time non-refundable Admission fee, the refundable security deposit and the first quarter composite fee. Once this is paid the admission process is complete and your ward becomes a part of the Cambridge family.
