The school was established in 1965 to cater to the need of provding English medium education to the children of U.P.S.E.B employees. It is a Christian Institution established and administered by the Religious Congregation of the URSULINES OF MARY IMMACULATE founded by Blessed Mother Bridgida of Jesus in1649. Since its inception the school has been a trailblazer in the field of education, development of skills and character formation.
