About Our School

Welcome to St. Augustine's Day School

The school was founded on 15th November, 1970 by Mrs. E. Gasper (nee Graham), who envisaged an English Medium Co-educational school to promote and disseminate knowledge for the development of the Anglo-Indian community as well as the other communities sharing the common desire for education in English medium based on National and Catholic ethos. Late C.R. Gasper was entrusted with the responsibilities of the school as its Principal. Classes commenced from January, 1971 at 43, Ripon Street, Kolkata.

The school has been named after the great Scholar of the Roman Catholic Church, Saint Augustine of Hippo (East Africa).

The school has Nursery to Class XII, and is registered under the West Bengal Societies Act, 1961. It is a Minority School, administered by the code of regulations for Anglo-Indian schools and other listed schools in West Bengal and affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi which conducts the ICSE and ISC Examinations.


Our Classes

Pre Primary Section

Pre-primary is the foundation of STADS. The teachers make children feel so secure that the children are able to leave the comfort and safety of their homes to come to the STADS family. There is a world of learning taking place in the preschool in a fun filled, play way and activity-based method. By the end of the pre-primary, they learn to communicate, read and write in English. This is not an easy task where many children are new generation learners. Pre-primary works on developing good habits and discipline in students. Good values of wishing and thanking are inculcated in children here. Much emphasis is also given on the cognitive development of the child as learning is due to practice and interaction in a big group.
The pre-primary in STADS is like a small step for a giant exposure in the children’s lives.

Primary Section

The aim of the Primary Section is to help the children to become independent, responsible, confident, proper human beings and good citizens. To reach out to others, especially the poor and needy. Here we focus to inculcate positive attitudes and on personal grooming.
Our Curriculum is stress-free and child-friendly. It is well planned keeping in mind the various needs of every child in our School. To help they develop the skills in Speaking, Reading, Writing and Listening in English, besides other subjects, Foreign Languages such as French and Chinese are also taught.
Each day is a learning opportunity for us at STADS. Becoming an independent learner is the key objective of the Middle School. Students are given the tools necessary to help them organize and manage their workload with the scaffolding of teachers and peer models. An inter-disciplinary curriculum challenges critical thinking skills and students learn how to identify connections between ideas and how one area of study can inform or influence another.

Middle Section

Our Middle School students are taught by an experienced faculty. Our education is formulated to foster self-esteem and social responsibility. We work in partnership with parents to improve the students’ commitment to learning and support the child in the school. Our expert teachers encourage all the students to embrace cultural and social diversity.

In the middle school we adhere to the following objectives
a. Acquisition of necessary knowledge skills and attitude for the development of the students.
b. Building of a firm foundation for the Senior School.
c. Development of abilities for enquiry, critical thinking and rational judgement.

Senior Section

Senior school curriculum is a commitment to academic excellence. Rigorous and comprehensive academic program that challenges students to think critically, solve complex problems, and explore their passions. With a diverse range of subjects and electives, students have the flexibility to tailor their education to their interests and aspirations. In addition to academic studies, our senior school program emphasizes extracurricular activities, community service, and leadership opportunities. Through participation in clubs, sports teams, and volunteer initiatives, students develop essential life skills such as teamwork, communication, and resilience. As students prepare to transition to higher education or enter the workforce, we provide comprehensive support to help them navigate this important stage of their lives. The senior school extends beyond the classroom, fostering a vibrant and inclusive community where students feel valued, respected, and supported. Through a variety of events, activities, and traditions, students forge lifelong friendships and create lasting memories. Subject Combination for Class IX, Session 2024-2025 :
