Bishop Cotton School

One of the oldest Boarding Schools in Asia, Bishop Cotton School in Shimla is a very famous Christian school for boys.

This school was established on 28th July, 1859 by Bishop George Edward Lynch Cotton but it started functioning from 15th March, 1863. In the correspondence it is named as Simla Public School but in practice it is never used.

The current Headmaster, Roy Christopher Robinson is all praiseworthy of his school for delivering the likes of author Ruskin Bond and actor Benjamin Gilani.
