About our Founder

Sir Robert Stanes was compassionate towards the downtrodden. He was anxious to do some good amongst the people who were much neglected and started a Sunday School for children. Finding them entirely uneducated, he started a day school in a little rented house near ‘Kumaran market’. The school commenced on 6th November, 1862 with two boys, two girls and two teachers. The school then moved to a house near the TELC Church, where it continued for more than 50 years.

The school then occupied the building which is presently the General Post Office. With increasing number of students Robert Stanes was particular that the school campus must be very spacious. So he bought the present campus on Avinashi Road. The foundations for the buildings were laid on 23rd September 1927. Amid pomp and splendor befitting the occasion he stated that, “the unseen foundation of the new building was being laid on the solid ground of God’s Word, the Bible”.

This school has ever been noted as a Protestant Evangelical School where the word of God is read and taught daily. His wish for the children was that they go forth into life as followers of the Lord Jesus Christ putting Him first in all things.


Lorem ipsum dolor sit

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.


To be ‘At Home’ with the Lord along with the students of his school

Our beloved Founder desired that all the students of his school may accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour so that they might spend their eternity in heaven In his letter, dated 13th August 1913 recorded in our school magazine ‘Then and Now’, he writes

Dear boys and girls,

“… I pray that the boys and girls of our School at Coimbatore may be amongst those who have found Christ as their own personal Saviour, so that one day we may all be ‘At Home’ with the Lord.”

Your sincere friend,

Robert Stanes
Stanes Founder


To build the character and lives of the students of his school in Lord Jesus

(In his requisition letter to lay the foundation stone for the school our beloved Founder Sir Robert Stanes writes thus to the Viscount)

“Your Excellencies will notice that the Foundation for this building is being laid on very solid ground, and we wish to add that in building up the character and lives of our boys great stress is laid on the teaching of the whole Bible – God’s Word- and we trust that all who may be connected to this Protestant Evangelical School in the future will remain true to the unchanging Word of God”.
