Enriched with spirit, legacy and character, the history of The Cathedral and John Connon School has been one of excellence and innovation. The School started the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in 2015 along with the IGCSE (2019-20), ICSE, ISC and Advanced Placement programmes.
Located in a beautiful stone edifice, which is also one of Mumbai's most prestigious heritage buildings, the IB programme has already made a wonderful start. While enjoying the freedom the IB programme extends, all stakeholders of the school also acknowledge the responsibility that comes with it.
That the school champions creativity and international mindedness is a known fact, which is exemplified by its Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) component. Cultural activities such as debates and dramatics not only instil confidence and help hone communication skills, but also widen one's global outlook. And just as important, the pursuit of sportsmanship is encouraged through the wide variety of games offered, ranging from football and squash to gymnastics and swimming, all of which promote collaboration, cooperation and healthy competition.
Tolerance, compassion and inclusion form the warp and woof of this esteemed institution. Championing these values, along with the spirit of inquiry, are the various clubs such as Symposium (the School's Model United Nations Club), The Literary Club, The Makerspace and Innovations Club, The Nature Club, The Astronomy Club and The Music Club to name a few. In its quest to offer a truly global perspective, the school also caters to several international programmes such as the Harvard Model United Nations, USA; Sunburst Youth Camp, Singapore; EU Mind, The Netherlands; and London Science Youth Forum, U.K.
The school is equipped with an array of facilities that are regularly upgraded to keep pace with global demands. Fully air conditioned classrooms and laboratories, computerized and barcoded libraries and state of the art digitized interactive flat panels (IFP) for each classroom.
Above all, a team of highly dedicated and invested staff members aims to provide holistic development to the students. Interactive methods like team teaching are encouraged that optimise the teacher-student ratio, while adding a new dynamic to classroom interaction.
The IB programme will soon be shifted to a new location, not too far from the current hallowed hallways. This imminent development has fuelled a sense of excitement and expectation in the school community.
