Welham Boys' School

Our Campus

Spread over 30 acres, the Welham Boys’ School estate is a well wooded, lush, arboreal retreat, providing an ideal pastoral atmosphere conducive to a healthy learning environment. The flowering trees and shrubs attract over 60 recorded species of birds. With the Himalayas to the north and the Shivaliks covering the south, Welham Boys’ School lies in the heart of the Doon valley by the river Rispana.

In recent years, the School has been concentrating on upgrading its existing infrastructure so that in keeping with the times, we can provide our students with state-of-the-art facilities, which indeed we have done in many areas. For the near future there are many innovative projects in the pipeline.

Nestled in the foothills of Himalayas, the school estate is a lush, wooded, arboreal retreat. It provides a pastoral atmosphere conducive to wellness and learning. The diverse trees and flora attract diverse animal species, including mongoose, squirrel, several types of butterflies and over sixty recorded species of birds!

Serenaded by river Rispana, flanked by the Himalayas in the north and Shivaliks to the south, Welham is situated at the very heart of the Doon valley.
