Progressive schooling- a successor to effective School Management’” 

As we look ahead into the 21st century, leaders will be those who empower others.

– Bill Gates, co-founder, Microsoft

Schooling is one of the most crucial phases of a child’s development. It is in a positive school environment that a child learns to foster strong relationships amongst his/her fellow students and teachers and develops the important skills of analysis required in day to day life to inculcate wisdom for a lifetime. The school management is the leader that empowers the school system to function and operate not only as an organisational entity but also as a place for nurturing human values and academic brilliance.

Parents, teachers, non-teaching staff and students are important stakeholders in the school system and safety and security of children is prerequisite for a healthy school environment


Uma Krishna Educational Foundation is unique in that they take responsibility for the Child’s learning .


These actions define and determine our ethos:

  • Advancing the education and intellectual and moral development of our pupils, whatever their capabilities, attributes and interests.
  • Securing the welfare and safety of our pupils as individuals and as members of a community.
  • Fostering open-mindedness and thoughtfulness in our pupils and our school.


Our aim is to create a ‘purpose for learning’ and allow children to be thinkers, innovators and problem solvers, to orchestrate experiences that will result in a natural and integrated development of knowledge, skills and thinking. We have been leading by example, creating dynamic, caring, learning communities that value  “the whole child “. Our vision is to develop a range of pathways to lifelong learning. Our belief is that all children should have the opportunity to experience the joy of discovery and develop a love for learning.

Our aim besides being an academic school and a place for learning and scholarship, where

  • We are ambitious about what pupils should know and we provide a cultural framework for their studies and their living.
  • We work to ensure pupils are knowledgeable and are active, independent learners.
  • Teaching is rigorous, critical, engaging and learned.
  • Pupils leaving school will be intellectually and emotionally prepared for higher education and the world of work.


  • Learn the instincts of courtesy and good manners.
  • Develop a moral code and practice living it out in readiness for their adult lives.
  • Care for others and learn to see service to others as a way of life.


  • Are supported in developing strength and resourcefulness to meet the challenges of day-to-day life.
  • Develop healthy, transferable interests and pursuits in a co-educational setting.
  • Learn and practice the skills of friendship through participation in a wide range of activities.
  • Grasp the value of the community.


Our school maintains a number of teaching staff at all levels and seeks to employ the best qualified and the most engaging teachers possible. We are lucky to have many teachers with years of experience and we are equally fortunate to be able to attract many young teachers who often add new ideas to the highly successful practices we have established in the classroom.

Our teachers are encouraged to explore modern methodology and to adopt it when appropriate; the school considers in-service training for staff to be vital and devotes a considerable annual budget to this part of our work.


We sincerely believe that in a healthy body resides a healthy mind, and physical fitness is crucial to a good health as well as sharpness of intellect.
