About our Founder

About 152 years ago, a little sailing vessel called ‘TRAFALGAR’ belonging to the well known Green Line sailing vessels, sailed into Madras harbour.

One of its passengers was destined to fame. Robert Stanes, an Englishman, just 17 years of age, alighted on Indian soil to live and die as Sir Robert Stanes. He had come to join his brothers James, William and Thomas, in the Nilgiris who were great pioneers in coffee curing. The Stanes family owned many estates in The Nilgiris, Valparai and Palani in South India.

Although coffee was their chief interest, Sir Robert Stanes soon shifted to Coimbatore where he became a pioneer in textile development (Stanes Mills) and a leading automobile businessman (Stanes Motors).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.In 1914 Robert Stanes was awarded the Kaiser-I-Hind and in 1920 he was knighted. In the year 1936, he died a comparatively poor man, but left behind him rich memories of charity, godliness and kindness.


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.
