Hi,
My daughter is 6 yrs old and we are seeking admission for her at Bishop Cotton's.
Can somebody help me with the procedure and contact person in case any?

Please don't go through any middlemen. Not worth it. BC process is pretty straight forward.

So should I call them and take an appointment or can I walk in directly?

Hi Aarika. For UKG the fee would be roughly 80-90K. Got this confirmed from my neighbour whose son is in Bishop Boys garde 1. The admission fee is high in Bishop, but the fees for consecutive years looks ok.

For our batch they have increased the price. i called up school to ask for the fee structure from UKG and above , and they told its 1.20 L

Then this is not good news. I didnt know about the fee hike. The hike is too much for this year.

Have u already paid the fees ?

Not yet. Tomorrow is the last day to pay. And I am still thinking! Mostly will go for the school because it is considered as one of the best in Bangalore. Even though it is far from my house, will give it a go so that we don't regret later. Its very difficult to get admission in such schools and since we got this opportunity we should not let it slip. What are your thoughts? What will be the travel time for your child?

I am really confused . I know i dont have much time too. My girl has got it in SFX frazer town too. and her travel time will be 15-20 mins max. But for the amount we pay is it really worth ? or is it just the brand name with which they just put up their price?

Always heard good reviews about Bishop. My daughter's current school principal's children are in Bishop Girls and she has all praises for this school. The only thing we have to manage is the class strength i.e. around 50 in one section. In all other aspects its a good school. Not much pressure on kids, no exams in LKG & UKG. Equal importance to extra curricular activities. Wonderful campus etc. 

If you decide to move forward with this school, let me know. We can connect offline and keep in touch. :)

the class strength is no issue in LKG and UKG because they have 2 teachers per class so its 1:25 ratio. Also they is an Aayya for every class. My issue is y do they have such a hike in fee this year and for the following years for our batch? and whether is it really worth the money

Most schools in Bangalore have the same story. The fees in "so called" good/best schools in the city is quite same with an exception of 1 or 2 Institutions. What is the fee structure of SFX? 
I really cant comment if the high fee does appropriate justice to the quality of education and student life of a child as I dont have any first hand experience with the way the school works.  
 

aarika 2018-03-13 18:20:28

 

SFX is 60k per year
 

2345 2018-03-13 18:29:05

 

Thats a huge difference. In that case, you should really compare and weigh the other attributes of both schools. Compare SFX with BCGS in all other criteria (distance, teacher student ratio, management, transport, education quality, extra curricular activities, board followed, feedback from peers/other parents, admission process followed at school etc) and then you can accordingly choose. All the best!
