The Blue Mountains School Tamil Nadu

The Blue Mountains School, Ooty was founded in 1962 by Frederick Gordon Pearce, a renowned educationist and pioneer of the Indian Public School Movement. The school was nurtured and its philosophy of creative education further developed by well-known educationists David Horsburgh, J.P. Gunawardane and Sardar Mohammed Malik.

The school is located on a 5-acre campus on the southeastern slopes facing the Ooty valley. It is a residential co-educational English medium school affiliated with the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). It admits students in grade.

The large cottage that houses the school is both a heritage structure and is historically significant. It was built by Fredrick Price, who moved to Ooty, after retiring as the Governor of Burma. He built the house for his wife and himself, taking care to have it done in a particular style, even bringing craftsmen from Burma in the late 1890s.

With the onset of independence, many of the Englishmen moved back to England; as did Fredrick Price. The house was sold in the pre-independence days to Vidyavathi Devi, the Maharani of Vizianagaram.

F.G.Pearce initially rented and later bought Dilkhush Mahal, from the heirs of the Maharani and established The Blue Mountains School in 1961.
