Stanes School

HistoryHome / History

In 1862, Sir Robert Stanes, then only twenty years old, started a day school for the children of his employees. The beginning was very humble – a small rented house with just two teachers and four pupils. Today, the school nestles in a spacious campus in the heart of Coimbatore, with about 3000 students and 140 staff on its rolls.

When it was founded, the school was solely an European and Eurasian school. The portals of the school have been since thrown open to all, irrespective of their creed, community or status. The exclusive minority rights for Anglo-Indian children are still being retained, thus honoring the Founder’s wishes.

Stanes Higher Secondary School is a landmark in the city called the ‘Manchester of the South’ and a hallmark in quality education. It continues to be the most sought after school in Coimbatore. Some of the heritage buildings have been maintained and used as classrooms. The school houses a well stocked library, a music room, two computer labs, a chapel, separate labs for physics, chemistry and biology, a separate Nursery block and a state-of-the art indoor stadium enclosing two basketball courts, two badminton courts, two table tennis courts and a well-equipped gymnasium.
