Cambridge Foundation School, Rajouri Garden was established on 4th July 1966 by the Cambridge Foundation
Society with an aim to provide “Excellence in Education and All round Development”. It all started in a
residential building in Rajouri Garden, when a small nursery and kindergarten was started in the home of Mrs
Sheila Verma and her husband the late Mr Brem Dutt Verma under the guidance of late Shri BS Murthy, former
Minister for Health and Family Planning, Govt. of India. The school was recognised up to the middle level in
1969. Milestones in the growth of physical plant of CFS were added with the foundation stone being laid by
Ms. Sheila Verma along with the school children and the dedicated staff on 2 nd October 1977. The school was
shifted to its present premises at Rajouri Garden extension New Delhi 27 on April 29, 1978.
The School has a sprawling campus of 4 acres.
Gradually CFS took shape and burst upon the educational scenario in west Delhi with vibrancy and freshness.
It attracted the local community from the very start and it grew rapidly. It was upgraded to the senior level
in 1979. Under the dynamic leadership of Ms. Sheila Verma and Late Shri BD Verma, the institution acquired
its full fledged Senior Secondary School status affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education,
Affiliation No. 2730051. It is
with their vision that we have now moved four decades ahead. They have been our guiding light by providing
a platform of enrichment by institutionalizing a highly qualified faculty and the most loving students. Today
the school is housed in 4 acre campus. The 3 storeyed structure has separate wings for different sections and
departments. Its warm and safe ambience is very conducive to learning. The school receives immense support
from its parent community and staff. The collaborative effort of all is responsible for the progress of our
students which facilitates the growth of the school.
The progressive environment at CFS is an amalgamation of academics, theatre, art, debating, discussions,
seminars, clubs and workshops, all being intelligently designed and promoted at school. Games, indoor and
outdoor athletics, yoga, aerobics, scouting, music, dancing, picnics and excursions have an important place
in the term wise planned school calendar. These myriad of activities are possible because it is the “love
for learning” that drives each endeavour that a Cambridgean sets upon. To develop academic excellence
the school offers a wide syllabus with careful planning and guidance to enable the student’s independent
thinking and self expression. This is reflected in class XII results that we manage every year in the CBSE Board
Examinations year after year. Opportunity is given to each student to acquire the values and belief that will
guide him/her throughout their life. Group activities in the school inculcate in the students team spirit, feelings
of patriotism and teach them values of sharing and caring. The ideals of quality and excellence with emphasis
on human values, commitment and discipline help to mould the student to adopt a modern progressive
and international outlook with a secular nature... The school believes in imparting Holistic Education to the
students which will lead to the development of-Head, Heart and Hand so that they efficiently discharge their
duties to themselves, to the community, to the nation as a whole and to humanity at large.
Upholding the school values, our enlightened, creative and forward looking Principal Ms. Anita Puri and
Director Ms. Meena Malik are competently holding the school banner high. The introduction of smart boards
is a cognizant move for further enhancement of knowledge, to foster the ability of every child to grow to his
maximum potential. Our faculty and staff earnestly hone our student’s academic achievement, character and
creativity. Excellence is nurtured and groomed to achieve our vision in order to provide an environment that
promotes lifelong learning and independence of thought.
The school continues to strive for excellence in all areas and exposes the students to the latest pedagogic
innovations. While the school emphasizes global thinking it also believes in preserving our own culture and
ideology, the traditional Indian values of humility, modesty and reverence. The school motto STRIVE TO RISE
truly speaks volumes about the quality of education which the school imparts and the values it stands for. CFS
tirelessly strives to create a learning atmosphere where mind is without fear and head is held high.
