School Campus

The rich heritage of La Martiniere is not measured merely with the passage of time. La Martiniere has evolved, in its journey striving always to fulfil the vision of its Founder, to provide holistic education to the youth, to make them responsible and worthy citizens of our country.

At the heart of this vision of our Founder lies compassion and the spirit to give. From its inception, La Martiniere has provided education to the Foundationers whose needs, including their stay in the hostel, are provided for by a trust fund created for this purpose. One such student, Sir Paul Chater, who received his education under the provisions of the trust fund, became the Founder of modern Hong Kong. Having imbibed the true Martinian spirit, he became a generous benefactor of the schools helping La Martiniere to consolidate and validate its philosophy.

The hostel at La Martiniere provides a second home for many children including the Foundationers. Here they are taken care of, nurtured, and looked after, the infrastructure providing for their comfort and effective growth.

Spread over acres in the heart of Kolkata, La Martiniere offers all the amenities for the 21st Century learning such as laboratories for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Home Science, Art Studio and Computer facilities, Audio Visual room, teaching aids for effective learning, large fields for play, swimming pool, spacious auditoriums and gymnasium. Activities which enhance the qualities of spirit and the body are as important to us as is academic learning. School education here is not limited only to book learning, the school has always encouraged sports and games and has produced many well known sports persons. It is affiliated to the Council for ISC Examination, New Delhi, which conducts the ICSE and ISC Examinations in Class X and XII.
