Welcome to SPS Darjeeling
"Youth," said Baron Pierre de Coubertin, "is the springtime of the body." Mens Sana in corpore sana in corpore sano - a healthy mind in a healthy body - has been the ideal of the good school in the centuries old Public School tradition as in the Vedic Indian tradition. Good health and an all-round intellectual, moral and academic education during school days are perhaps the most important assets a boy can have. For generations, Darjeeling has been renowned - not only in India but also in other Asian countries and in the West - as the unique hill resort where both good health and good education have been provided at St. Paul's School.
- Admission Open for Classes 1 to 9 for the session 2017-18
The Rector may at any time, and without assigning reasons, ask parents to withdraw a boy if he feels that such a course is in the best interests of the School.
Parents intending to withdraw their children from the ensuing year must tender their notice of withdrawal in writing. Written and signed notice of withdrawal must reach the School by 31st January of the ongoing (Present / Current) academic year. If the written notice of withdrawal does not reach the School by the above mentioned date, the School will be entitled to half the annual fees of the ensuing (next) year. In the case of a student being withdrawn during the course of an academic year, the School will be entitled to fees for that whole academic year. (no fees will be refunded this applies to the new admission also).
Transfer certificates, school-leaving certificates, testimonials and examination certificates will not be issued until all School dues have been paid.
NOTE : No letter or withdrawal will be accepted through e-mail unless it is signed by either the mother or father/ Legal Guardian of the Student.
A student may be expelled from the School on the following grounds :
- Misconduct and moral turpitude.
- Non-payment of School fees.
- Non-adherence to School rules and regulations.
- Failing twice in the same class.
- If a student is expelled no fees will be refundable.
Boys have to write a letter home once a week. These are normally posted by Monday afternoon, the postage being charged in bills. Boys are free to write more often, the letters being posted by their Housemaster or by theJunior Wing's Head or by the Primary Wing's Head, as the case may be.
