INFORMATION FOR VISITORS
Get set to change the way you look at schools. 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.
While emphasizing the key milestones of education, TCS also encourages individuals to focus on their strengths. This is most evident in the Advanced Level qualifications (A Levels) that allow in depth specialisation by balancing knowledge and skill.
We also believe in letting actions speak louder than words. Testifying to the quality of our education is the fact that our students have been admitted to reputed colleges and universities like Presidency College, Jadavpur University, Loreto House and St. Xaviers College at Calcutta, Symbiosis Institute and Fergusson College elsewhere in India, the London School of Economics and the Universities of Manchester, Wales and Nottingham in the UK, the Universities of Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Rutgers and Chicago, and Wooster and Claremont Colleges in the US, as well as colleges and universities in Australia, China and Singapore.
A frontrunner among international schools when it comes to results, TCS students have received many accolades and honours, including the first Manmohan Singh Scholarship. Many A Level students have also received the Cambridge Brilliance Awards by securing the highest marks in India across Science, Business Studies & Humanities. A laudable feat indeed, considering that Cambridge has more than 210 affiliated schools in India. Even more significantly, it’s the only international school in Calcutta to shine in this manner.
But at TCS academic excellence is not paramount. The best students are not our sole focus. Rather, we are proud to be child-centric, catering to a diverse cross-section of students. Our goal is to not merely teach what’s in the books but nurture and encourage students to become
- Creative Thinkers
- Reflective Learners
- Team Workers
- Self Managers and
- Effective Participators
You will be surprised to know that our focus is as much on teachers as on students. Our greatest assets, they are well-trained in paying personalised care and attention to every student, regardless of his/her rank in class. While personal rapport is built thanks to the low teacher:student ratio, co-curricular classes and activities ensure complete emotional and social development of a child.
Furthermore, the teaching process is future-oriented and emphasises the exhaustive use of IT in education. In fact, IT is integrated in the teaching of many subjects and not just confined to being a separate academic course. Computing is also offered as an academic subject at both IGCSE and A Levels.
TCS also helps make students world-ready through its multicultural student strength that comprises pupils from the USA, UK, UAE, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, Burma, Bangladesh and of course, India.
A quick look at our site will give you a fair idea about our teaching, curricula, ethos, student-life and admission procedures. However, for further clarification or information, please feel free to get in touch with us.
