Mayo College – Ajmer

As the Chief Guest for the Annual Prize Giving day on Dec 5, 1879, the then Viceroy of India, Lord Lytton, expressed Mayo College as the Eton of India. He said, “Ajmer is India’s Eton and you are Eton boys”. Mayo College in Ajmer was set up in 1870 by the British Raj, with a view to providing the leaders of the princely states an educational institution with standards at par with the British. Sprawling across 300 acres and educating boys from classes 4 to 12, Mayo College today is one of the finest residential schools in India.

Over the years, Mayo College has managed to attract the crème of India. The boys are housed in eleven different houses, named after the princely states of Rajasthan. The construction of the first ten residential houses cost Rs 4.5lakh. They contained 112 bedrooms and 17 sitting and dinning rooms. At that time they could house 139 students. Today, the houses provide a home-away-from-home atmosphere to the boys. Healthy competitions between the houses continue throughout the year, in various activities like sports and elocution. Apart from the inter-house competitions, the school takes part in inter-school competitions with other prominent institutions of India like The Doon School in Dehradun and Scindia School in Gwalior. And with two full sized cricket fields, 15 fields for soccer and hockey, 16 tennis courts, five squash courts and two swimming pools, the boys get enough practice for such competitions.

If the school is well equipped in sports, Mayo College also makes sure that its students get a good knowledge of the outside world. The school has an extensive exchange programme with several schools in the UK. Just like its motto – let there be light – the school provides light to its students in all aspects rather than giving a bookish knowledge.
