THE SCHOOL’S AIM FOR ITS BOYS

 

 

The Doon School aims for boys to become open-minded, knowledgeable and critical thinkers who can express themselves in a variety of ways. The school seeks to develop principled, reflective, and balanced risk-takers. Each boy is expected to aspire to genuine intellectual achievement. He is also expected to develop and acquire leadership and entrepreneurial skills in school in preparation for the rest of his professional life. A boy is also taught to be proud of his culture, history and place in the world, and to acquire a refined aesthetic sense.

 

 

The school offers a broad-based curriculum culminating with the ISC and ICSE board examinations and  the IB Diploma Programme. The curriculum at The Doon School seeks to prepare a boy to understand his unique abilities, to define goals which are both idealistic and obtainable, and to achieve them.

 

 

Boys are admitted regardless of caste, colour or religion from all over India. In recent years, boys have also come from overseas and are known as NRIs (Non-Resident Indians). Countries represented in the present student population include the USA, the UK, Singapore, Dubai, Nepal, Uganda, Nigeria, Russia, Canada and Abu Dhabi and Australia. The NRI pupils add an international dimension to the school, without its core ethos being weakened in any way.

 

 

 

CURRENT SCHOLARSHIP AND BURSARY INFORMATION

 

 

The current scholarship programme offered by The Doon School is based upon the candidate’s performance at the entrance examination and subsequent interview. Prospective parents are most welcome to contact the school and request that they wish their son to be considered for such an award subject to his performance at the entrance examination. If prospective parents would like to also indicate their wish to be considered for financial aid (a means tested award) they are most welcome to do so before their son’s entrance examination by informing the Head of Admissions, Mr Madan Kothari.

 

However, the school only processes applications for bursaries and scholarships once the candidate has been successful in the entrance examination and interview.  

 

 

 

Q. What is the process of making an application for financial aid and demonstrating a parent’s need?

 

A. The Doon School has a scholarship committee which meets to decide on how financial aid awards are allocated. The Headmaster sits on this committee.

 

Prospective parents, (whose sons have successfully passed the entrance examination and interview and are offered a place) are required to complete a form which is available from the Head of Admissions. The form requires parents to submit a detailed report of their financial affairs, including joint family income, in order for the school to ascertain whether they are justified in providing financial support to the parents. The form is comprehensive and has been designed to ensure that the school is able to allocate its resources wisely and effectively, so that they reach the most needy parents and does not provide financial support in the form of discounts to parents who do not need it.

 

Financial Aid (means tested awards), ranges from limited financial support to awards worth 100%+ to support parents who would not be able to afford to send their son to The Doon School. The system also applies to scholars whose parents require further financial support in order to enable their son to attend The Doon School.

 

Please note: Financial Aid is reviewed annually on application for the full period of a boy’s career at The Doon School, provided that his conduct and industry remain, in the Headmaster’s view, satisfactory, and in accord with the school’s eligibility terms and conditions. However, the Headmaster is entitled, at his sole discretion, to remove the financial award with due notice from any boy who is not working properly, or who otherwise brings disgrace on The Doon School or his own person.

 

Financial aid will only be awarded if candidates of sufficient financial need present themselves.

 

 

 

Q. Who do I need to contact at The Doon School to acquire the necessary application forms?

 

A. Please email Mr Madan Kothari, The Head of Admissions
