  • History & Memorable Moments

La Martiniere are one of the oldest, most prestigious, and most competitive, non-denominational private schools in India and France. Branches are located in Calcutta and Lucknow in India, and Lyon in France. The schools admit students irrespective of religion and race. [1]

La Martiniere College, Lucknow, is the only school in the world to have been awarded Battle Honours for the part the staff and pupils played in the Defence of the Residency at Lucknow during the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857. [1]

La Martiniere Schools were founded posthumously by Major General Claude Martin in the early 1800s. Martin had acquired a large fortune while serving the Nawab of Awadh Asaf-ud-Daula and bequeathed a major part of his estate to establish the schools. His will outlined every minor detail of the schools, from their exact location to the manner of celebrating the annual Founder's Day. [1]

The Calcutta schools and Lucknow Martinieres consist of separate girls' and boys' schools, while the three in Lyon are co-educational. [1]

The Colleges are day schools, but Calcutta and Lucknow have boarding facilities as well. [1]

The Colleges are widely recognized for their excellent athletic and academic programs, and for their architecture. Extra-curricular activities, including sports and community service organizations, are emphasized, and music and dance are included in the general curriculum. [1]

The seven branches function independently, but maintain close contacts and share most traditions. [1]
