About School

COL BROWN CAMBRIDGE SCHOOL

Col Brown Cambridge School is one of the oldest boys boarding school in dehradun had an exceptionally humble beginning with only five students.

Col. William Brown understood that just educating Indian boys would not fill the need of education but they must be given or was set up for employment so that they could join the main stream and partake in decision making.

 

This vision for vocational training acknowledged and implemented by him in 1926, was brought in by ICSE Council in the form of in addition to two in the year 1978. Tragically though in addition to two became an extension of class 10th and vocational concept got mired in controversy mainly because of the social conditions prevailing along with lack of perseverance to make it acceptable.

Col. Brown was a ‘Cambridge Blue’ and had also in his tenure of service developed to love and play Hockey with equivalent competence. His wife supported and helped him in his endeavor and was loved by the students. Col. Brown known to be a strict disciplinarian and hard taskmaster had a gentle side when it came to children. It was not uncommon that generally one or two of them would take a lift on his shoulders from the Dining Hall after dinner to the Hostel. This event more often than not started between the Jack fruit tree and the Bel tree which exist even today.

The school for Indian boys attracted attention from various sections of the Indian community. Wealthy Indians mainly erstwhile Prince Lings and Jagirdars took advantage of this new opening and admissions developed steadily. The members of the staff had more Europeans than Indians, but by 1942, the strength of teachers had leveled out. Col. Brown was an eminent educationist and had a foresight too. During the course of his study at Cambridge in England, he had befriended Col. T.F.O. Donnell M.C. who was the Principal at Meerut College, who after having retired took over as Principal of the School according to Col Brown Cambridge School desires.
