HOW WE STARTED

The onset of the new millenniums saw the opening of an exclusive preparatory girls school which was purely residential and only one of its kind in the country. Doon Girls occupies the original site and buildings of Welham Girls' School. Welham Girls' consolidated its campus and this site was tastefully redesigned and purpose - designed to suit the needs and requirements of the little ones.

The Doon Girls School is an exclusive residential primary school in Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand and home to some of India’s finest school. It is our mission to prepare young girls for the best secondary schools in a nurturing and happy environment. It is an environment in which our students not only achieve excellence in academics, sports and co-curricular activities but also grow as individuals. We believe in strong Indian traditions as is reflected in our activities and in our emphasis on moral and human values, courteousness and respect for others.

The school was founded in 2000 to address the need for a best high- quality preparatory school for girls. It is situated on a secluded, tree lined 2 acre campus in the exclusive residential colony of Dalanwala next door to Welham Girls’ School’s former junior section. The property has been tastefully designed to suits the need and requirements of the little ones.
