The Doon School joins HMC, March 2011
The school is very pleased to announce that the Headmaster’s application for membership of the International Division of the UK’s Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC) has been successful. This organisation represents the top two hundred and fifty public schools in the UK, including Eton, Harrow and Winchester, the schools Doon is modelled on, as well as Manchester Grammar School, the institution that so inspired our founder, S.R. Das. HMC has an active overseas division of schools founded on the British public school model. Headmaster Dr McLaughlin said, ‘I am truly delighted that The Doon School has been given the opportunity to join its peers in a global context. It is a great tribute to the reputation of the school and the quality of the boys that we have at Doon. I have been very fortunate to have been in membership of HMC before. I am really looking forward to being back in HMC and to representing the Doon School within this prestigious organisation.’ Membership of the organization will also extend greater opportunities for masters and boys to go on exchanges and for teachers to have access to training.
The Doon School is the first school in India to be in membership of International Boys’ Schools Coalition
The Doon School is delighted to be the first school in India to be accepted into membership of the International Boys’ Schools Coalition. Headmaster Dr Peter McLaughlin said: ‘As we are a specialist boys’ boarding school, membership of this organisation makes perfect sense for Doon. I am delighted that there is such a well established and highly respected organisation to focus on the issues surrounding the education and welfare of boys. The International Coalition of Boys’ Schools, which has a membership of over 200 boys’ schools around the world, conducts research and publicises the results, as well as promoting the cause of single-sex education around the world. The organization bases its promotional work on the results of research and evidence, and provides schools with examples of best practice to follow. At a time when many boys’ schools are under pressure to go co-educational, the members of the Coalition are banding together to ensure that boys’ education continues to flourish around the globe.’
