Welham Girls’ School – Dehradun

Welham was named after the little Welsh village from where its founder, Miss H. Oliphant hailed. A retired English head mistress, Miss Oliphant started a school called Welham Boys’ School ( or Welham Boys Preparatory school as it was known then) for little boys before they joined The Doon School in Dehradun. She was struck by a lack of schools of a similar stature for the sisters these little boys. Fired by the desire to create and equal educational platform for young Indian women in a newly called Nasreen adjacent to Welham Boys School to start a small boarding school for girls.

Present students and alumni of Welham will vouch for the fact that Welham teaches one to learn of all religions and cultures. It is also a great leveller because designer clothes and gadgets are frowned upon (and may in fact be confiscated if detected). On Gandhi Jayanthi, you will find the girls serving meals to their fellow students, scrubbing dirty pots after the meals and washing windows around the school as shramdaan or service to the community as espoused by Gandhi.It is a liberal institution that believes in instilling a respect for all Indian traditions and customs. Living together at Welham helps girls to learn and appreciate diverse faiths and beliefs and celebrate all major festivals one family.

Welham has an exchange programme with the Millfield School in England. Every year, two girls in class 11, the second senior most class from Welham, are chosen to spend a term at Millfield. Thereafter, two girls from Millfield come to India for about five weeks in the summer.
