St Thomas’ Church School has been permitted by the Church of North India (CNI) to start a second campus in Chinsurah. The school has been allowed to keep its brand-name intact on the second campus.
Looking at the performance of the school over the last 160 years, it has been allowed to expand its base by Bishop Paritosh Canning, the head of the Kolkata Diocese of the CNI. The new school will be administered by the governing body of the Howrah school.
The Chinsurah campus will be inaugurated on July 14 by the bishop. The new building has come up just beside Duff School, which is again a heritage campus run by the CNI. To start with, the school will admit children up to Class IV this year and move gradually up. The school will seek affiliation from the CISCE and plans are to go up to Class XII.
Nearly 300 kids have already sought admission in the school. There was a long-time demand for an English-medium missionary school in the area and hence this decision to start the school, said sources in the CNI. “Duff School is also run by us and has a brilliant track record, but it is a Bengali-medium school. So to meet the demand of the people, the bishop has allowed St Thomas’ Church School, Howrah, to start its second campus in Chinsurah,” the source said.
