Developing impressive young adults who are academically accomplished and prepared for the wider challenges of life ahead
The Senior School welcomes pupils not only from our Junior School, but also from a wide range of other schools in India and abroad. Children settle in quickly, establish new friendships and find their way around very swiftly indeed! They soon begin to make the most of the exciting range of facilities at their disposal as well as adapting to new and more mature ways of working.
The curriculum gives students an opportunity to experience a range of academic subjects and interests before considering their CBSE curriculum options.
Classrooms are equipped to the highest standard and our teaching seeks to be both invigorating and innovative. Support is readily available and thoughtful direction is provided with regard to future courses of study. Our academic record is first rate, but it is augmented by a thoughtful system of pastoral care and an extensive programme of extra-curricular activity.
Senior Management supported by Principal, Vice-Principal, Headmistress and all section heads look after the day-to-day needs of every child.
House Masters and Mistresses together with other House Staff and specialist teachers in sport, music and drama ensure that everyone engages with the tremendous range of activities that are on offer. We look to encourage every child to achieve their best in the classroom and out of it!
SASA students are proud of their school and we are proud of their accomplishments.
Our Senior School takes 11 year-old children and develop them to pass smoothly in their boyhood and girlhood. During this age the children are at sea to understand whether they belong to the category of children or adult. Because at home or at school everybody instructs them that they are grown up now and they should not behave like children and when they give some suggestion being elder they are told that they are children and suggestion are not expected from them. SASA understands their problem and students are given every right to express themselves in classroom and outdoor. Being in between the lines of discipline they are expected to pass through this phase of life with understanding & logic.
Between the ages of 11 and 16, boys and girls are taught jointly to understand one another. They do feel the sociology of school and they behave in proper order.
The School is large enough to offer a rich choice of specialist activity within an unusually flexible curriculum. A generous teacher-pupil ratio, separate space for each year group and a lively House system, all help to create a friendly, close-knit atmosphere.
Highly developed social skills
The pupils’ personal development is excellent. They show high levels of confidence and a healthy competitive spirit, encouraged by the house system, which promotes good self-motivation. Pupils demonstrate strong moral awareness, and highly developed social skills, strengthened in the Senior School by their experiences at the outdoor centre.

Finding your place
Our schemes of work are broadly based on the National Curriculum, but as an independent school we are free from its constraints. This enables us to develop our own extension material to stimulate enquiring minds.
This more open approach to education also enables us to tailor learning to a pupil’s individual abilities, interests and aspirations.
Pupils are also encouraged to take responsibility for their own academic development by managing their time and interests effectively. This emphasis on individual progression includes a comprehensive assessment and reporting system. One of the many advantages of a large, well-resourced school is that we can support a varied and full programme of activities outside the classroom sports, music and drama are particular strengths and other recreational clubs and societies cater for more specialised interests. We encourage all pupils to engage outside their year group by joining in a flourishing and dynamic House system. House events provide pupils with many opportunities to mix socially, have fun and ‘have a go’ as part of a team, irrespective of their ability.
The House system helps develop confidence through keen, but always friendly, competition in a range of events. Each House has two House captains and another four deputy House captains. That offers plenty of scope for putting leadership, negotiation and persuasive talents to good use!
