Cambridge Foundation School,
now with 53 Years of Magical Thinking behind it has been an example of
perfection in every aspect of education. Its holistic strategic cutting edge
presence in expediting children’s overall growth and development makes it stand
apart. Everyone here, starting from its founders, the iconic Mrs. Sheila
Verma and her husband, the Late Mr. Brem Dutt Verma are passionate
and tenacious initiators who thrive on developing practical, innovative and
elegant solutions to complex problems for each new generation who have been
constantly confronted by various impediments on their way to progress by always

July 4th, 1966 – The journey
thereafter has been of constant rise and rise of the stupendous success of CFS.
The School never gloats and basks in its success. In fact, it is a fuel and a
motivator to do even better for the world of education. It is always in a
perpetual rearing to go mould looking ahead at the reverse countdown for the
tasks to be accomplished during the period to follow.
Historically, the School has a
strong belief that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will sail you
through. The ever changing jigsaw puzzle that is India and the systems ingrained
therein particularly in the education system which has seen and experienced
several incarnations, styles, theories and philosophies, our own philosophy of
‘Stand Apart’ and yet ensuring the underlying unity beneath this cacophony is
always visible. With all its diverse group of people having their own
philosophies, culinary preferences, trade and ethical and religious practices
raises the bar of social, educational and economic commitments. It is the
foundations on which CFS has so far evolved and shall forever continue to do so.
Despite many imponderables, the tide of success continues. Despite all the
social and economic diversities, the School is fast marching towards meeting the
high aspirations of the New Rising India. Little wonder, CFS stands tall and is
becoming increasing more visible under the auspices of the current young and
dynamic management dispensation. There has been a huge synergy in everything at
small humble beginnings to a landmark in West Delhi, the School spread over a
sprawling 4 acres campus is a household name in not only the vicinity but in the
entire educational fraternity. Its Alumni are spread far and wide across the
globe holding distinctive positions to manage and shape policies towards
development. CFS is indeed proud of its rich legacy for it is this that binds us
together as a distinctive family in an otherwise generically global culture.
Replete with anecdotal evidences of outreach initiatives over several decades,
the School provides a varied but united perspective to enable students have a
meaningful engagement with society and become leaders in nation building. Over
these decades, and more so during the last decade, some of the finest minds as
the current Principal, Dr. Anita Puri have pioneered certain
ground-breaking pathways to provide students with a challenging and relevant
education. An example of the School’s socio-economic development of standing up
to the needy is truly reflected in its initiative on providing free education
support to the children of women jail inmates at Asia's largest prison, Tihar.
By stretching beyond traditional academic routines she along with the
Manager, Mrs. Meena Malik have innovated new systems to ensure students grow
and enhance their overall capabilities.
