The learning process at PIPS extends beyond the class rooms. Although not every minute of a student’s day is regimented, we do require students to participate in a sport or other school activities, and chances are no matter what interests your child, there will be something for him to enjoy.
Yes, Sports are compulsory. We encourage our students to play one or the other sport. At PIPS, there is a little something for every child that has an interest in contact or non-contact sports. Furthermore, there are different levels of competition in each sport so that your child can compete against his/her peers with similar athletic abilities.There are excellent opportunities for students if they have an interest in other extracurricular activities like Dance, Music or Theater. We have a well – stocked Music Room. Your child is welcome to sharpen his talent for Guitar. An open-air theater and a sports stadium adorn the Campus.
There is a plethora of Sports opportunities at PIPS that include Roller Skating, Squash, Swimming, Cricket, Football, Athletics, Gymnastics, Basket Ball, Volleyball, Tennis, Badminton, Table Tennis etc.
With the present sedentary lifestyle of children and the dominance of technology over mankind, children spend most of their time on gadgets and indoor games. A boarding school helps a child to overcome these challenges by engaging a child physically and mentally in a constructive, disciplined and innovative environment. As a result, the child grows up to be a competitive, academically sound and a responsible individual. We promote a Balanced Personality Development of each Child entrusted to our care.
A Co-Ed Campus promotes gender equality and teaches the child to respect the other gender. It removes shyness, fear and also increases confidence. One has to be able to work with different genders, cultures, family backgrounds, traditions and nationalities in every aspect. Co-education results in young adults who are open minded, well-rounded, and willing to step outside of their comfort zone.
PIPS offers both the National Curriculum, Indian Council of Secondary Education (ICSE), starting from Std I to X and an International Curriculum,Cambridge Assesment International Examination (CAIE), starting from VI to XII Stds.
It is proposed to add International Baccalaureate® (IB) Affiliation from Session 2021-22
CAIE curriculum entails better quality of teaching & expertise with exposure to British standards and demand in English speaking coumtries including India. IB curriculum ensures excellent standards of teaching, and exposure to learnings that add significant value for jobs in USA, EU and other countries worldwide. CAIE and IB are foreign Boards that require their teachers to be suitably trained to impart higher standards of teaching. Exam papers are sent abroad for checking. High affiliation costs and significantly more skilled and highly trained teachers add to the overall cost, therefore fees for CAIE and IB are more than those for ICSE.
We have a comprehensive policy of Fee Concessions. Details are available on Page 33 of the School Prospectus.
All Girl Students are entitled to a Fee Concession for every Academic Year. Details are available on Page 33 of the School Prospectus.
Children of Serving/ Ex-Servicemen are entitled to a Fee Concession for every Academic Year. Details are available on Page 33 of the School Prospectus.

Traditional education systems are largely textbook-driven and teacher-directed and the students are, by and large, passive learners. The emphasis is on teaching, testing and the exam results, rather than learning and the process of learning. At PIPS, on the other hand, we lay emphasis on meaningful continuous learning and concentrate on the application of knowledge to real life. The curriculum is delivered with a student-centric approach and students share the responsibility for their learning with teachers as facilitators. With Smart Classrooms at a certain level, students are encouraged to learn by self- motivation. The PIPS programme is also different in that it integrates Music, Dance, Drama, Arts, Robotics Technology, Sports and Community Service into its Timetable in order to deliver a holistic education.
A normal Class strength is of 30 students. However,special attention is given in smaller groups for weaker children.
For Children who need additional academic support, there are one hour remedial/tutorial sessions after classes, Monday through Friday. There are evening Study Preps as well, to provide students with extra time for academic reinforcement. There is no extra charge.
Students undertake activities that encourage personal discovery and growth, skill development, physical recreation, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to the community. A range of sports and games, a variety of clubs and programmes provide ample opportunities for all these.
The entire campus, which is almost 105 Acres, is boundary walled or fenced. Every individual building (Classrooms, Hostels etc.) has its own boundary wall. The Central Entrance Gate is manned by Security Guards 24 x 7. The Girls’ Hostel has an additional layer of 24 x 7 Security. Moreover, with major common areas under CCTV surveillance, all movement is closely monitored and recorded. There is only one entrance for vehicular traffic to ensure maximum safety and security, where Security Check takes place on Entry and Exit.
PIPS allows the Parents to speak to the Child on Phone once a week However, in special case, the Child can be contacted through the Principal. The Child is encouraged to write a letter each week to the Parent in the normal course. Apart from the same, the Parent may contact the School Representative (Counsellor/ Warden) to know about the Child’s progress.
A 6 – bedded School Infirmary, complete with an isolation room, is located near the Hostel area. An experienced and trained nurse is available 24 hours to provide medical support as and when required. A regular Paediatrician is available on a short notice. There are separate Observation Rooms for Boys and Girls in the Infirmary. School also has arrangements with nearby Hospitals for hospitalization, diagnostics and other emergencies, if so required or necessitated. Im such a case, the Parent is immediately informed
Adherence to Rules & Regulations is an important aspect of learning. Any violation of the school’s norms entails strict disciplinary action. It is the policy of PIPS that all cases of violation will be handled with sensitivity and fairness. A well defined set of Rules, Regulations and Sanctions are detailed in the Student Handbook. A System of Stars and Stripes – the former for recognition of achievements, and the latter as a repromand for unacceptable conduct- is in place
PIPS has a zero tolerance policy against Bullying which is clear to all Children and the staff. Moreover, we have created an ethos of good behavior whereChildren treat one another and the school staff with respect because they know that this is the right way to behave.
PIPS follows a Zero- Tolerance policy for substance abuse in any form. All food articles are checked under strict control and nothing objectionable can enter the School Campus.
We work hard to provide Vegetarian and Non- Vegetarian, hygienically prepared high quality nutritious meals for our diverse Children. The mess serves Indian, Continental, Thai and Nepalese Cuisine. All food is routinely checked by a qualified dietitian to ensure nutrition. For detailed Menu, please refer to Page no. 16 of the School Prospectus No food from outside is permitted in the campus
Vegetarian food is part of the Cuisine.
Students are not allowed to bring any kind of electronic equipment. Mobile Phones are strictly banned. No Jewellery is permitted to be worn by the Girls, except earrings of a reasonable size.
Travel broadens the mind. The school organizes one Domestic Tour in India during the term. The cost of the tour is met from the Security Deposit. Parents can take their children for night – outs 4 times in an academic year on dates specified in the calendar. This however is not encouraged.
PIPS, like some other High-end Residential Schools, has an aesthetically designed Campus, and an elaborate infrastructure. PIPS offers Iinternational Curricula, in addition to ICSE. However, PIPS is different on account of the following reasons:
- It ensures openness, celebrates diversity and creates a multicultural learning community
- It is a GREEN School. Only 10% of PIPS campus is constructed. Rest 90% is maintained as green space for the benefit of our community and the environment
- PIPS endeavours to produce excellent result and pass percentage every year.
- It emphasizes the process of, and meaningful learning, rather than just passing the examination
- Its Founders, Faculty and Staff members represent diverse backgrounds and cultures
- Its Special Educational Needs department is headed by qualified, trained, experienced and certified staff.

A student’s progress is regularly monitored through Formative and Summative assessments and parents are regularly updated on their child’s progress through a Dedicated App Parents are also provided with the regular Parents/Teacher Meeting Schedule, which may be Twice in a Year.
We at PIPS believe that being international is a state of mind that goes beyond flags, festivals, and food. At PIPS it means:
Encouraging candid discussions about sensitive local and global issues like racism, discrimination, human rights, etc.
Actively encouraging the appreciation of other countries and their cultures
Accepting differences of opinion and ways of thinkin
The school advises parents not to send any eatables or tucks with the child as these are strictly prohibited.
