Origin

Earlier known as the United Kingdom Citizens’ Association; Mrs R.L Powell founded Sheiling House School, Kanpur. Much, like the educational institutes of the time, Seiling House School catered to the children of the English residing in the state. However, in the year 1958, the British had started to leave India, leaving the schools in a state of confusion about their future. It was then that the futuristic Indian thinkers put forward the idea to allow the uninterrupted running of the school. So, it was the 20th of December 1958, that the Shieling House School, came into existence under the Societies Registration Act, 1860.

This brand new start was seen by just 39 students at the time, with five classes in existence. It took another year for the syllabus to be revived to suit the needs of the Indian youth. The school saw a rapid growth in due course of time, with various exclusive features like Arts and Music. Soon, the institute grew into an important educational centre in the state.
