Our History & Location

Our History

The Cliff School, Ootacamund was founded in the year 1955 by the late P.I. Zachariah, a pioneer in the field of child Education in the Nilgiris. During its decades of existence, it has successfully coached many boys and girls for admission to the leading public schools namely, the Lawrence School, Lovedale, and several other English Medium Schools in the Nilgiris and elsewhere in the South.
The school consists of two sections, viz, the Annexe and the Main School, with a total capacity to accommodate a maximum strength of 300 boarders. The Annexe houses 4 to 6 year olds, while the Main School accommodates the higher age group.


The location of the school is well within the Municipal limits of Ootacamund. The Main School (Primrose House) and the Annexe (Caerlavarock) are adjacent to each other and adjoining the Ootacamund lake. Primrose House and Caerlavarock were the erstwhile palaces of the Raja of Khalikote and the Raja of Parlimedi, respectively.
