  Brief of the Institution & Motto : St. Thomas’ School, founded in the year 1789 for the English speaking community of Calcutta, is the oldest school in West Bengal and the second oldest, in India. It traces its direct antecedents back to 1729 as the Charity School.

The Schools’ affairs are controlled by a strong and influential Board of Governors as determined by the St. Thomas’s Schools Act of 1923.

His Grace, the Bishop of Calcutta, is the Chairman of the Board of Governors. The Master of the Calcutta Traders Association is also an ex-officio member. The Board has representatives from the Government of West Bengal, the Bengal Chambers of Commerce, the Anglo-Indian Association, the Vestries of St. Paul’s Cathedral, St. John’s Church and St. Stephen’s Church. There are five co-opted members which include elected representative of the teaching staff.
