Our History

The Sandur Residential School was started at a time when good residential schools with a broad-based, progressive outlook were few in number. In 1959, a group of friends decided to set up an institution that could impart an enlightened, liberal education.

Founder Patron - M.Y. Ghorpade

M.Y. Ghorpade, an MA from Cambridge, has always been deeply committed to the cause of education and human resource development. He was Minister of Karnataka’s Rural Development for several years. He is the patron of the Shivapur Sikshana Samiti, which is responsible for the management of the school.

F.G. Pearce

F.G. Pearce was known and respected for his pioneering work in public school education. He planned several of India’s best known residential schools, including the Scindia School at Gwalior and the Rishi Valley School at Madanapalli. He was the first Educational Director of Sandur Residential School.


Mahalakshmi, a well known educationist and teacher, (Chairperson of the Indian Public Schools’ Conference from 1992 to 1994), was the Founder-Principal of the school. Her involvement contributed both to the School’s development and stature.

Today, the Sandur Residential School is an established, respected institution and one of 70 select schools to be accorded membership to the Indian Public Schools’ Conference.
