I am creating this thread for the benefit of all parents who are seeking to admit their children to Class 1 next year. I did not find a similar thread - if one exists, please let me now.

Please post news / information regarding date of handing out of admission forms at the various reputed schools in Hyderabad, in this thread.

Also, please introduce yourself briefly. I am the parent of a daughter who is now studying in UKG in a playschool. I had consciously taken the decision to admit her to a regular school only in Class 1 so that she could find the transition to a big school to be easier.

As a starter, admission forms were given out at Sanghamitra school (Nizampet) in July, but only for UKG and lower classes. Forms for higher classes will be given out, based on availability, in April 2014.

 Hi Avk,

I am father of a son who is now in UKG in playschool. We both are in same boat of searching for good schools for admission in 2014-15. Hope we get details from other parents on this thread. I will keep updating the thread with details what ever I get. I am looking around the school around Miyapur, Kondapur, Chandanagar, Kothaguda, Nizampet areas.

 Hello Srini,

Thanks for following this thread, and for the intro.

Apparently DPS Hyderabad (i.e. Gachibowli) will announce the dates for distribution of forms towards the end of September. Actual disribution will take place in December.

Here are their contact details:

 Hi Everyone,

First of all, thanks to AVK for starting this thread !!!

  I have a daughter who is in UKG in a pre school and want to joni her in 1st class. 

But my daughter DOB is in July 2009 which means she will not complete five and half years by 1st June 1014 ( Which seems to be the age criteria for most of the schools).

I am trying to find a school which can admit her into 1st class.

Or is it better to join her again in UKG ( Or keep her in pre school itself ) for another year ?

PS: Is there a place where we can see the age criteria of all schools at one place?



avk 2013-09-05 12:19:49



My own daughter is Aug, 2008 born, so almost one year older than your daughter, and she will be joining Class 1 in June, 2014. 

I see there have been several discussions earlier on this subject, please search this forum with the keywords "age for admission".

I believe the age requirements have been prescribed by NCERT / CBSE, so while some schools may be willing to relax by a month or two, there could be problems from the CBSE / ICSE Boards at the time of writing the Class X exam. If SSC, I think there will be no problems - can someone confirm?

 Hi all,

We are likey to move to Hyderabad in 2 months from Chennai. My daughter in Grade I in one of the best schools in chennai. she got into it from alumini quota.

Based on the other discussion threads and my surevy on internet, We shortlisted Geetanjali, HPS, Bhavans(JH), JHPS. We felt these school suit our needs/budget. We are not really looking for international schools as our budget is <=70k per annum. 

just wanted to know how easy/difficult to get into these in the middle of the academic year!! If not middle, We can wait till she finishes her Grade I here and then move to Hyd, which come under 2014-15 academic year..But looking for an advise as how to approach these schools. We don't have any alumi/ any other quota/recommendations.

Best Regards.


avk 2013-09-06 13:58:43


 @Oggy - Your best approach would be to approach the schools directly and see if they have any vacancies at this time. Guess it is a matter of luck. All the best.

I cannot claim to be an expert, however, this is what I think:

1) There are about 25 schools (ICSE and CBSE) which fall into the category of "elite" schools. Discussion on this forum is usually limited to these schools. Most of the schools you have listed in your internet survey message fall into this category. A few which you may have missed: HPS, DPS (two branches), Oakridge, Obul Reddy, Silver Oaks, Sanghamitra, Manthan, Sreenidhi, Maharishi Vidya Mandir, Meridian (3 branches). There could be other hidden jewels which noone talks about.

2) I personally don't think the standard of teaching in Hyderabad is great in any school. Even in Gitanjali School, academically rated to be one of the top schools, there is high teacher turnover and kids have to study plenty on their own.

3) In the Kondapur / HiTech area, the main schools would be Chirec, Meridian, Maharishi Vidya Mandir, Manthan. If you are willing to go a bit further to Gachibowli, DPS and Oakridge come into play. In JH, the reputed schools are JHPS,  BVB, Obul Reddy.

and also should have some extra curricular activities for them



avk 2013-10-09 12:15:57



You can use the following as a rough rule of thumb: The minimum age for admission to Nursery is 2 1/2 years + as on June 1st, for P.P.I it is 3 1/2 years + in June, for class 1 it is 5 ½ years, for class 2 it is 6 ½ years and so on. Individual schools may vary slightly.

Some prominent schools near Pragathi Nagar are Meridian (KPHB), Sanghamitra, DAV (Vivekananda Nagar), Bhashyam School, Chinna Jeeyar Swamy school, St. Mary's (Vasanth Nagar). There are also schools in Nizampet, such as Chaitanya Techno, Silver Oaks and some others.


radzz 2013-10-10 15:27:01


Am looking for admission for PP1 for my son. He is 3.2 years now and going to OI play school.

I was thinking of putting him in Meridian as its walkable from our house [Madhapur branch]. Am not so sure now after reading the reviews here on Meridian.

Can you please suggest schools which looks to make the kid happy and interested in school, and exposes them to various activities, possibly in a fun way?

What i want from a school:
- Good teachers-student relationship, where the kid gets personal attention from his/her teachers.
- Kid is looking forward to going to school
- Teachers who treat them as individuals as opposed to just children, talk to them, more importantly listen to them.
- Interesting extra curricular activities and newer methods of teaching
- Encourage them to think and explore various avenues
- Traditional extra curricular activities, sports as well

Are my expectations from school unrealistic?
