About School

La Martiniere has one of the most distinguished histories of any school in Kolkata, or in fact, India. Founded in 1836 this school has achieved an enviable reputation in the field of academics as well as extra-curricular activities. It is without doubt one of the top schools in Kolkata.
Even though it has been in existence for more than 175 years it has always maintained a standard of un-impeachable integrity and has made sure that each and every boy that passes through its doors faces the outside world with a sound character.

Campus Details

The schools are located in south Calcutta, with the boy school having it's main gate in Loudon Street and the girl school having its main gate in Rawdon Street. They face each other across Rawdon Street.

The main boys school building was completed in 1836 and is notable for its European Classical architecture, with the Round Chapel, ringed by imposing Corinthian pillars, at the heart of it. The Round Chapel has the honours boards listing Founders Day medalists on its walls. Above the Round Chapel is the beautiful library. The boarders dormitories are on the top floor. Classrooms are spread through the main building. The building was ruined by a cyclonic storm in June 1897 which destroyed a "stately Gothic porch" on the south side of the building and a blue dome "that rivalled the dome of the Calcutta General Post Office". The school chapel was in the dome. Lack of funds made it impossible to rebuild both these features. The building was modified in 1915 with the addition of a western wing (which now houses the Principal's office on the first floor).
