Today i enquired for Pre KG Admission for my son at colors International school Tambaram. They informed that the admission forms for pre kg for Next year will be given by November 1st Week. The School is currently running at tambaram and shortly moving to Vandalur- Kelambakkam road by next year it seems.
I had some questions. They informed they are following IGCSE Syllabus for all the classes.
I am not aware abt IGCSE Syllabus. How was the Syllabus?
Will it good like CBSE?
Anyone having their kid stuyding in this school. If so how was the coaching? What are the Pros and cons of this school?
@ArunChennai & @AnithaPillai - Do you know if Colours has moved to Vandalur, coz JustDial has the Vandalur address but the school website says they'll move shortly. Also do you have an idea about the admission dates for 2015-16 LKG?
I think the school has moved. I had seen the Hoardings placed in the right hand side of the road near to Melakotiayur.
Any feedback abt these schools? Please share
Where exactly is this school on Vandalur Kelambakkam road. Reviews about this school please?
Thank you @ArunChennai. I called up the school and they said that we can enquire for admission from Oct 3 at the new campus. Also, they are planning to start till 6th standard for 2015-16 academic year.
@Kanadith - This is a IGCSE school currently located in Tambaram west and is moving to the main campus on Vandalur - Kelambakkam road.
I haven't heard any reviews about this school, but the advisory board (given in the school website) seems impressive.
Has anyone checked their website recently? Looks like they are starting a cbse school too (colours Indian School) along with the igcse school and it says admissions are open for 2015. I will not be able to visit the school until oct. If anyone does, pls. do post the details.

I too opting for Colors international IGCSE Syllabus.. But not sure whether the school is Affiliated to Cambridge university..Even i tried to see the find the Affiliation information in website...I cant find.
Could anyone has any idea... Please post ur information...
I checked the website. Thanks.
The school colors was not found in the website
so i think they are not affilated to Cambridge university..Not sure why
Frnds please share ur ideas
Called up and enquired regarding the admissions. They ask to go on Oct 3rd to get the application forms
Frends, any of ur kids studying here? give some reviews abt this school
Just called the school and they said they are in process of getting the affilation to Cambridge university and will take 4 months of time down the lane.
But dont know how far it will take. Becoz after putting our kids in to the school thinking that we will get the IGCSE affilated and if it keeps delaying it will affect our kids school life...
@ arunchennai.... Y u can't try in Sri Sankara global in urapakam...its a good Igcse school.
@ArunChennai I've heard that IGCSE affiliation is easier than CBSE. I'm also thinking about the status of the building and how much is completed as I haven't seen it in person yet. If construction will be ongoing during the academic year, then we'll have to think about safety issues too. Lets hope for the best.
Yes Thanis...That school is near to me.
One of my neighbour hood girl studying there LKG.. I think that is newly started from this year...
Need to check the coaching and reviews.
@ Muran... Thats ok.. But when i approached last year in tambaram campus they mentioned the same thing.. that is my concern...by this time they would have got it..Dont know why there is an delay.. Abt Building construction they mentioned like one phase it got completed... and another phase is in progress... Office room has been setup it seems..
Anyway i will visit next week and post the comments,
And abt Colors CBSE School i think it was started this year it seems in the same campus..Dont know abt the CBSE Affilation for these school too... I also have an concern abt these affilations...
Anybody knows abt the fees structure(LKG) in colors international school
Anybody knows abt the fees structure(LKG) in colors international school. Please let me know.
I went to school today and register my son. Fees structure is for CBSC : Rs.82000, for IGCSE : Rs 112000.
Thank you @ArunChennai and Velayudam. Do you have the split up of d total amt?
@ velayudhum....what r ur views about this school? What are the positive n negative things about this school? ....it will help me in making a decision regarding my child's admissions. How much did u pay for registration?
hi velayutham, any feedback abt the school ? and hw long does is take for the travel frm vandaloor to the school ?
is the fees worth giving?
Fees seems to be revised it seems. When i went to tambaram branch last year the fees was very less. Dont know the reason why there is change of fees. @kanadith is the fees which you had mentioned is inclusive of transporation fees? Can you clarify
and i have an query is it affillated to Cambridge university or How long it will take them to get afilated. Any ideas? Did they affilated to CBSE too? Any ideas ? please share
I have registered my daughter in Grade I in Colours International School, IGCSE .They have scheculed the interactive session for my daughter on coming saturday.Anybody having any idea about Grade I interactive tests ? From my side fees seems to be ok as it includes uniforms , books ,stationeries and other activities too. Class ratio is also 20:1 which impressed me a lot.i dont want to put my daughter amoung 40 children which is happening in most of the schools nowadays .area is vast and constructing building is impressive.Regarding affiliation , they informed that affiliation will be got for any school only during the running academic year.
@ArunChennai - I did some googling on affiliations based on your concern and from what I see it appears that one needs only state approval to start a school irrespective of the board followed. Only after the school starts functioning can they apply for affiliation to CBSE board since they have to mention some specific details regarding no. of students in a class, etc.. (Similar for IGCSE too, I think) So it might take some time to get an affiliation I guess. Also, I dont see even Unitech DPS listed in the CBSE affiliations list when I skimmed through it. Pls. do cross check.
@ArunChennai / @Kannadith / @AnujaJohns - have you visited the school? what are your thoughts? I'm planning to go sometime this week.
Can someone share your views on Sri Sankara Global Academy. Its walkable distance from my home. Do they have Pre K.G?
Hi all, ....I visited colors school new campus. I wanted to c classrooms but there was only bricks n mortar. The school is functioning now at tambaram west. Construction of this building will complete in December. Classes will start in new campus only in June 2015. Classes upto 6th..ground floor will b CBSE n 1st floor igcse. They have a vast area n more buildings will come up in future.
Transportation facility available. Fees for CBSE is 67,000 + 15,000. Fees for igcse is 97, 000 +15, 000. This does not include transportation fees..that is not yet fixed. Students have to bring lunch from home. Application forms r available at Rs 1000.
@Kanadith -Thank you. I had also visited the school 2day. To add to your info, 15 K is the admission fee and the rest of d amount includes 3 sets uniform+books+ craft materials + outings (dentist/zoo/bank/barber/etc.) + yoga and meditation (compulsory daily)+term fee. Fees shud b paid by march. Fee is fixed for 3 years. They r planning for some extra curricular activities like swimming / rifle shooting, etc for which fees will be extra. SFIS in Porur belongs to the same educational trust it seems. Another school in 20 acre campus is planned at Thayur. A few trees r there which is good but donno if it will b cut down later.
Did you got the admission forms? When is the last date for getting Admission Forms ? What is the constraint they mentioning for LKG Section. My Son will be 3.3 years Completed by June1st 2015. Whether he will be eligible for LKG? Please share ur ideas.
I havent still visited the school. And what abt transportation. Is it only a common place near to bus stop for pick up or the vehicles will be sent inside the area if the student count gets increased? Any ideas on that..
