St Michael's School
History of the School


The School was formed by the Bishop of Calcutta and the Metropolitan of India under the Caption- ‘Durgapur Project’ in 1963. The School, however, opened only in 1966. With the formation of the Church of North India in 1970 and the creation of the Diocese of Durgapur, the school became a part of the new Diocese. The actual handover took place only in 1994 and the Diocese of Durgapur thus became the founder body of the School. Today the School is run by a Board of Governors under the Chairmanship of the Right Reverend Dr. Probal Kanto Dutta, the Bishop of Durgapur. Under his visionary leadership the school has expanded exponentially and its service to the people of the city has also multiplied manifold.

The School had humble beginnings. It started with only a Pre-primary Section to the South East of Bidhannagar. In one or two years it shifted to the present location with 2 or 3 pucca rooms and with some primary classes and slowly developed and ran a full primary school till 1977. The due recognition from the State Government was achieved in 1978 and the school authorities proceeded further with secondary classes, and obtained an affiliation from the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi in the same year.

The first two ICSE(X) batches of 1983 and 1984 appeared from St. Thomas’ Boys’ School, Kidderpore. By 1985 ICSE(X) candidates were appearing from the school’s own centre and in 2014 the thirty first batch of ICSE(X) was sent up.

The school sent up its first ISC (XII) batch with Science and Commerce streams in 1989, and in 2019 year the thirty-first batch appeared for their Board Examinations.
