About Welham Girls' School, Dehradun

The School is affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi, an all-India Board. The School has classes from VIto XII. The academic year begins in April and the Final Examinations are conducted in March of the following year.English is the medium of instruction throughout the School. Hindi holds a place of very high importance inthe curriculum, and every effort is made to ensure that each girl reaches a high standard in the language.

In 1957, an ageing English lady, Miss H. S. Oliphant, fired by the desire to create an equal educational platform for young Indian women in independent India, acquired a Nawab’s estate in Dehradun to give shape to her dream. There were no funds, no staff, no school buildings and no students save a vision and an indomitable spirit. She entrusted the task of setting up and running a boarding school for girls to Miss Grace Mary Linnell, an experienced and respected educationist who headed a girls’ school and college in Hyderabad. Under Miss Linnell’s guidance, ‘Welham’, named after a Welsh village, bloomed and expanded and soon grew synonymous with high scholastic standards and a progressive attitude, yet rooted in Indian tradition and culture.

The Welham community has grown from a mere ten students at its inception in 1957 to its current strength of 540 students. The alumnae of the school have carved a niche for themselves globally and within India, yet the spirit to ‘give and not count the cost’ remains unchanged.

Welham lives by its motto - “aartt shanti phala vidya” (the aim of education is to bring peace to the suffering) – and students who attend Welham are united by a deep commitment of one to another and of each to the whole. Integrity and civility, as well as being empathetic and humane, remain steadfast ideals at Welham. The School fosters inclusion and inspires students to understand their strengths and capabilities.
