Hi sharu,

I am in thana street, purasawakkam  What  about u? How old is your kid? Do you have any idea about doveton ICSE


sharuakash 2012-01-18 16:10:32


 i m at choolaimedu, my son is 3 yrs old... even i m looking for some feedback abt doveton ICSE board ...



mikukiku 2012-01-18 16:24:38


Hi sharu, My kids will turn 3 by coming Mar. Both matric and ICSE stream of doveton begins from 1st std only. The pre-primary section i.e L.K.G & U.K.G is in a separate premises i.e Doveton Oakley. Once they complete their kg's here we could move either to matric or to ICSE. It purely depends on the ability of the kid

Have you bought application from doveton oakley. They have started issuing. Ive to get tmrw only.

 my son s in Aschool (chettinadu foundation) now ..  i m planning to put him in ICSE board from 1st std... most of the ICSE board schools are located out of city, i saw this school when i was browsing in the net , hence would like to know abt their standards... also pls suggest me which will be gud ICSE or CBSE ?


mikukiku 2012-01-19 09:46:35


Both are equally good. IMO, more importance to board is required only for secondary education. Now what we require is a very strong foundation.. In my personal opinion, ICSE curriculum provides a a very stong base comparatively.

To add , I am not interested in rote & write learning method. So my preference is for ICSE

Hi I am trying to gather information about Doveton ICSE . If you come across any parents or reviews pls share the same


Regina 2012-01-28 15:36:03


Doveton Okaley is exclusive kindergarten school. For 1 STD  you have to seek admission again in Doveton school. This is what I heard from the school.

But Doveton school has LKG and UKG and you can take admission either for Matric, Anglo-Indian (now both comes under Samacheer so there is no question of matric or anglo) or ICSE. Doveton school has been approved fro ICSE and they are construcing a separate block for ICSE stream. This is what I heard from school office. And, also I heard that the exisiting school  (all current students of matric, anglo-indian) will be moved to ICSE standards but I am not sure how far it is true and practical. 

I have a taken a form for LKG admission and I have asked for ICSE stream and the school office has told me that ICSE syllabus will commence only from STD 1 and for LKG, UKG it is Kindergarten. So, I beleive after UKG and my son wil move to ICSE stream. (During the time of admision I will clarify my doubts and will enroll my kid only if they assure that my kid will in ICSE from STD 1 onwards).

If anybody have more infomration for Doveton ICSE please share







mikukiku 2012-01-28 16:57:15


Hi Regina,

We too got selected in oakley. But I was informed that they could move the kid to ICSE depending on the ability of the kid to cope with that curriculum. I dont know how far it is true.

Further, I have no clue about doveton ICSE, whether they have sound infracture, on par with standards of similar schools, or not. I have insufficient details.

Let us keep trying


Regina 2012-01-28 17:09:09


 Hi Milku,

Have u paid any donation? What is the fee structure with Doveton Oakley?



mikukiku 2012-01-30 09:31:19


No regina,I didnt pay any donations.  Initial payment is Rs.19850/-  We need to pay for 2 more terms, books & transport separately. No uniform for KGs


IndyParent 2012-01-30 16:18:07


hi - Doventon Corrie is constructing a separate block for ICSE stream. Had an opportunity to talk to a parent ( matric parent)  and was told that the school has asked children styduing in matric(samacheer) if they are opt for ICSE from next academic year (2012-2013). Fee for Doventon corrie is again nominal , I donn the split up and when enquired at school office was told that it will be 25K for LKG ICSE stream...

Also just for your info,  I heared that that Seventh Day Adventist,vepery (opposite to Doventon Corrie) will also go into ICSE stream from 1st std starting the academic year...2012 2013


mikukiku 2012-01-30 17:30:25


Thanks for the valid info. Also suggest whether the standard of ICSE stream is on par with the schools of similar curriculum. The school has a good reputation as it has a good & long history in imparting best education whereas I have no clue about the present scenario  i.e ICSE curriculum


Regina 2012-01-30 22:10:11


 Thanks Milkukiku, for the fee details. Today we secured a LKG seat with Doveton Corrie. We paid 25k thru DD (which includes, admission fee, buliding fund, 1 st term fee etc) there are three terms in a academic year. We have been told that admission is happening for ICSE only and a new  ICSE block is almost through. 

Hope Doveton school will improve the quality in ICSE..



mikukiku 2012-01-31 09:44:20


hi regina, I am bit confused. Are you speaking about  doveton oakley? Because primary section is functioning separately in this premises.


mikukiku 2012-01-31 10:37:58


Hi regina, pls confirm whether ICSE has its own kindergarten section or it begins from std 1. If so what is the age criteria for LKG in ICSE? Can I enroll my kids here? Are they issuing applications still? I have not yet paid the fees in Oakley.

Pls respond. Awaiting your reply


ReginaMary 2012-01-31 10:58:17


 Hi Milkukiki,

Doveton Corrie has its own kindergarten. As per rules/standards, ICSE will commence only when a kid goes to 1st STD till then (LKG, UKG) it could be anything. I am not sure about age criteria for ICSE as my son is 3.5+ years old. Applications are being issued and you can enroll. Pls visit the office immdly if you wish to enroll



mikukiku 2012-01-31 11:16:26


Thanks for your prompt response. I will approach the office today.

Thanx a ton regina


mikukiku 2012-01-31 11:28:50


Hi regina,

My husband got the application. Askd to submit form tmrw. thank U for the timely help



ReginaMary 2012-01-31 13:06:11


 Hi Miku,

Welcome!. Nice to hear that you got the application. Direct all your queries related to ICSE, teaching staff, fee strcuture, new block etc to the prinipal/office during the admission so that we should be aware about their process and methods. I didnt get much info related to exisitng school (Matric, Anglo-india now comes under samacheer). I was told that all exisitng students will get migrated to ICSE stream but I couldnt beleive how it is possible?

We should make sure from STD 1 onwards our kids should be put in ICSE only. (my worry is that they still using Doveton Corrie Matriculation Hr. Sec School). We must be in sync.




mikukiku 2012-01-31 13:16:44


Definitely regina. I will try to gather information as much as I can during the admission process. Have you paid any donation?


ReginaMary 2012-01-31 13:32:09


 They have not given any break-up but we paid Rs 25k thru DD. they told that it is all inclusive of 1st term fee, admission fee, building fund fee etc. So I think donation is added within that 25K


mikukiku 2012-01-31 14:11:07


Ok regina

Wish me luck


IndyParent 2012-01-31 14:24:58


mikukiku and ReginaMary - Just an info to share , Doventon used to be a Good School and its one of the oldest schools in Chennai and they know the systems of education better than some new schools coming up . May be the methods still followed are conventional methods ( you may be knowing that Indian way of education is popular in the world)

Only thing might be that Good teachers make a big difference . My Spouse studied there and was told that Doventon used to be a very Good School . With these Samacheer trend and ICSE coming up I believe Doveton will make a difference if they cope up with the trend...

 As far as the name is concerned I think it might get changed . The same is the case happened in St.patrick's at Adyar , they have angloIndian and also ICSE , and later the name got into St Patrick's ICSE school ( not sure about the exact name but it states ICSE)

Are they still accepting the Application forms , I got the Application, filled in but I did not pay the fees 25K due to the reason I stay far from Doventon ( Anna Nagar ) ...


mikukiku 2012-01-31 14:45:27


Hi thanx  for the info. got appln only today. So no clue


IndyParent 2012-01-31 16:05:29


also request the school staff to have a look at the infrastructure if you may want to... Good Luck...


mikukiku 2012-01-31 17:14:55


Thnk U Indyparent

I will try to collect enough details. Revert u ASAP




ReginaMary 2012-01-31 18:07:47


  @ Miku - Good Luck. Post your expereince/feedback after admission

@ Indyparent - Yes, stil they are issuing application forms and admissions are happening. Thanks for sharing info abt Doveton ICSE. 


mikukiku 2012-02-01 09:57:33


Hi regina, Gud mrng

Today I had a bitter exp in this school. I approached the office for form submission. The lady in the office is so busy that she does'nt even bother to look at me. After 5 mts, she enquired about my visit. Without waiting for a second, she asked me to come with Rs.25,000/- DD and my kids. She is not ready to answer my questions. I could not gather any info even from the ayammahs??????????

I am not happy with ambience there. Yet to decide


ReginaMary 2012-02-01 11:06:10


Yes, I agree. Their behaviour is still in olden days format school, they  follow their conventional method of schooling. As we parents may not get proper information as like other schools (professional-business oriented). We will be well treated intitally finally fooled and looted with their money-motive business type school.

I had a very good experience with A School (Chettinad Foundation). I lost almost 50K for pre KG. This is my experience and there are many schools in city running for pure business. Hence I decided  to go with conventional school.

But again I would still expect Doveton Corrie to change their attitude liitle bit towards parents.
