Our school All Saints’ College, Nainital is located in one of the most beautiful places in Uttarakhand. It is an all girls school and has a magnificent campus. It is also a part of the ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’.

Hygiene is something that has to be maintained throughout our lives to stay safe and keep ourselves healthy. To keep everyone safe inside the campus, our school takes care of the sanitisation and hygiene of everybody present in the campus and also maintains the campus very well.

As it is a boarding cum day school, the classrooms, washrooms as well as the dormitories are cleaned constantly. We also celebrate ‘HARELA’, a very famous festival of the Kumaon Region by planting trees.

Our Principal as well as the teachers try to take as many measures as possible to maintain the clean and beautiful atmosphere of our campus. We go to the nearby villages to spread awareness about sanitisation and healthy living.

The support staff of our school plays a very relevant role in the maintenance of the beauty of our campus. They water the plants frequently and look after them.

I am very grateful to our school who gives us all the possible opportunities to maintain such an aesthetic campus

All Saints’ College was founded in July 1869 with only 2 students and Miss Bradbury as their teacher. The School, which was called the “Diocesan Girls’ High School’, set up at ‘Stoneleigh’ where Ramsay Hospital now stands.

It was then shifted to Petersfield, the present site of Balika Vidya Mandir and then to ‘Brandsdale’, which now houses the Uttarakhand Hight Court. The School was eventually shifted to Ayarpata Hill in 1892.

The same year All Saints’ sisters’, an Anglican religious order, took charge of the school; after which it was known as All Saints’ School. The foundation stone of the present main building was laid 1893. The Diocese of Lucknow bought the estate in 1915 and the School came under the management of the Holy Family Sisters.

The present Junior School Building, which was originally the training college for teachers, was shouldered by the All Saints’ College Society, of which the Bishop of Agra Diocese (The Church of North India) is the Chairman.

This educational institution is an English Medium residential-cum-day girls’ college. It is under the management of the All Saints’ College Society and is registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860.
