BISHOP COTTON SCHOOL, SHIMLA
Bishop Cotton School Shimla is the oldest boarding school in Asia, founded on 28th July 1859 by Bishop George Edward Lynch Cotton, son of an Army Captain, who died leading his Regiment in battle. Bishop Cotton School is the first School in India to start the Prefectorial System. Bishop Cotton personally reconnoitered ten sites in September and October 1864, and finally approved the South end of Knollswood Spur which belonged to the Rajah of Keonthal. Bishop Cotton has produced several prominent alumni, known as Old Cottonians, including the highly decorated officer Major Roy Farran (Curzon).
The students are divided into four houses:-
Each student is sorted into one of these houses upon entry into school.
The houses compete against each other in academic and sporting
disciplines, each contributing towards house points which eventually count
towards the "Cock House" awarded to the champion house for the year. In
the Junior School, from classes I to V, pastoral requirements are met and
control and supervision of the boys is by the Matrons who live next to the
boys in the dormitories.
