McLEOD's English School was founded by Mrs. D. E. Luiz, a MA Lt. from the Presidency College, Madras. As a pioneer planter in Wayanad, she had been involved in many social activities including English Education in Sulthan Bathery. Having been a lecturer in many prestigious colleges in India and abroad, Mrs. Luiz decided to start in Poomala a playschool for toddlers in 1997. Gradually by adding 1 class every year in 2014-15, the first batch of 7 students cleared the Class X examination of the CBSE, New Delhi with flying colours. Having obtained Affiliation in 2012 for conducting classes upto Class X, the Management of McLEOD's English School has initiated an expansion programme, in terms of infrastructure and facilities development. The new Management comprises the guiding lights of Mrs Geraldine McLeod, the Principal- Mrs Indira Valson and other eminent educationists from Sultan Bathery. They have embarked on teacher training sessions and workshops to improve the quality of education being delivered in the school today. Within the broad curriculum offered as per the National Curriculum Framework (NCF2005), we provide ample opportunities to young minds to develop critical and creative thinking skills, to be self- sufficient and flexible, to be able to work with others harmoniously while facing challenges with fortitude. The extra-curricular activities offered in the school supports the scholastic programme of our institution, helping us to present a holistic McLeodian a self-sufficient, confident and active learner.
