Bombay Scottish School, Mahim has a rich legacy and history that goes back 176 years. What began as a humble orphanage in Byculla has now burgeoned into this formidable educational institution that is situated across the Mahim Bay. The initial purpose was to house the children of Indian navy seamen and Presbyterian soldiers who served in British India. It also became home to those whose parents died in service.
It was in 1875 that the present land on which the school stands was acquired and the construction of the building began. Since its inception Bombay Scottish School has grown in numbers and in stature over the years. From 100 students in 1935, our school has a present strength of over 3000 which is growing through the grace of God.
We are proud to say that this growth has not stalled but is continual as new plans are being laid every year.
