Welcome to The Doon School. We are a school which specializes in all boys’ boarding education for pupils aged 12-18. The school is probably the only ‘All India’ school with applications from almost every state each year, as well as from Indian families overseas. Established in 1935, The Doon School is one of India’s finest schools, with a strong intellectual heartbeat, an unequivocal commitment to social service, a curriculum that develops leadership and an alumni network with a global reputation.
The Doon School’s mission is to recruit India’s exceptional boys who, apart from being strong in academics, will bring character, positive attitudes and talents and interests in fields such as sport, music and cultural activities to the school. We recruit boys from every state in India, Indian nationals from the SAARC countries and Indian nationals from all other parts of the globe. It almost goes without saying that The Doon School’s first priority will be a boy’s ability to cope with our academic curriculum, as well as to contribute strongly to the wider life of our school. In addition to their academic ability and potential, the school looks for qualities in boys that show they will make the very best use of the extraordinary opportunities offered here, in and out of the classroom; and boys who will seek to make their mark in the school, with active and positive participation, and leave a legacy behind them. We want boys not only to benefit themselves from a Doon education but also to add value to the lives of the other boys. The Doon School also wishes each of its boys to be leaders in their communities, their countries and around the world.
The Doon School is very fortunate to have many applicants for both entry classes (Classes VII and VIII) every year, so we are looking for boys with the desire to stretch themselves to the limit. We hope that a boy will serve his school and realize his own potential as he prepares to go on to us to the first class university or college of his choice.
Our entrance examination is held at the end of October or beginning of November each year. The non-refundable registration fee is on a sliding scale, so it is much cheaper to register your son for the entrance examination sooner rather than later.
