The Cambridge School (TCS), Calcutta’s oldest and largest Cambridge-affiliated school not only offers the globally accepted Cambridge ‘IGCSE‘ and ‘A‘ level qualifications from Kindergarten to Class 12, but is also a gateway to a global learning community.

Some of the best results of all international schools in the country are consistently achieved by TCS students, helped by effective and dedicated teachers, small class sizes and the usage of cutting edge technology in teaching. Our students have excelled across subjects in scoring top results in India. The course structures offer diversity, choice and flexibility and are designed to emphasize students’ strengths.
The school-leaving A Level qualifications are widely accepted in India for the purpose of admission to Indian colleges and universities, as well as meeting eligibility criteria for competitive exams like the Joint Entrance Test. To name a few, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), St Stephen’s College, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) and National Law Institute University recognize A Levels and hold them at par with Indian qualifications for meeting eligibility conditions.
The Cambridge School offers various Co-Curricular activities like Robotics, Art, Drama, Cricket & Football training and practice, Creative & Contemporary Dance, designed in accordance with our motto of ‘Roots & Wings’ which aims for wholesome all-round personality development of our students. This is part of our avowed objective of creating well balanced individuals and not just well-educated ones.
Events that build awareness of topical issues, showcase student talents and inculcate a spirit of service are held regularly. Some recent ones include a Dengue Awareness Event, Celebration of Indian Independence with the British Deputy High Commissioner, participation in a workshop on ‘Are humans inherently prone to evil’ and MUN (Model United Nations), as well as our annual Winterfest.

“In TCS I learnt a new way of learning which is psychologically
less taxing, more enjoyable and yet, still rigorous. The emphasis is
on internalising knowledge, as opposed to simply gathering it for the
sake of sitting exams. Indeed, the Economics module that I took in TCS
has played a key role in me pursuing my Finance PhD and therefore,
affected my life in a truly profound way.“

“My stint at The Cambridge School was truly life altering! The friends I have made in Cambridge are not just from very distinct backgrounds and countries but the exposure to such a diversified fraternity was an immense boost to my confidence and thought-process. The student-teacher ratio in classrooms resulted in deep and personal bonds with each teacher and their contributions have been significant in my personality development in those formative years. I am grateful to The Cambridge School not just for the exceptional educational experience but for shaping me as a well-grounded individual.“

“Prior to joining TCS I was in another school. I was made to feel that I was generally bad at everything and should quit school and take up vocational training. I had nearly given up on getting anywhere in life and that’s when I came across The Cambridge School. TCS game me a new outlook in life and the confidence that I could in fact succeed. At TCS I was made to use my intellect and strengthen my analytical skills to arrive at answers rather than focus on mere bookish education. I am grateful to TCS for giving me my self-confidence back and setting me on the right path to success. Since TCS the sky has been the limit and I’ve never had to look back.“
