  • Head Prefect 2021

    “College is a school for every boy. Our state-of-the art facilities on our 25h campus are a strong incentive to come to College. With the excellent teaching, sporting, and cultural facilities, we offer nearly 40 co-curricular opportunities across varied sporting codes and cultural areas.

    The most important answer to “Why College?” is our excellent academics and the exceptional results we achieve year after year. We are more than just a school, and at the end of the day, our academics are our main priority. With our dedicated teachers and excellent academic resources, we have every opportunity to succeed.”
