Wilsonia was founded on the 08th of July, 1966 by Rev. and Mrs. H.R. Wilson in their Bungalow. The school got its name from the Bungalow itself: Wilsonia. It is located in Civil Lines and has become an important landmark of the city.
Five and a half decades since its inception, with these humble beginnings, Wilsonia still holds the privilege of being among the city’s most reputed institutions. The school has expanded tremendously during the years and now has an identity of a split unit system.
Wilsonia is a temple of learning where the focus lies in imparting education with devotion and a zest for service to mankind. It has several branches out institutions: Wilsonia College Boys’ School, Wilsonia Girls’ School, Wilson’s Play House, Wilsonia Scholars’ Home, and Wilsonia Degree College. Each of these is an abode of knowledge within itself, targeting different interests and ages, yet imparting the same essential values.
For Wilsonia, the word ‘education’ is not restricted to the mere knowledge of the three R’s, instead, our mission is to shape the intellect, character, and career, as well as the spiritual, social, political, and emotional ideologies of those who come here in pursuit of knowledge. The aim is to give pupils the tools that will shape the world to their own advantage, rather than be distorted by the ills of the existing social structure. At Wilsonia, we prepare the young ones to step into the progressive era and be a part of the global village, while still retaining and maintaining our cultural values. The endeavor is to create in the students, the desire to achieve great heights of success and be ideal citizens of our country.

Schooling is one of the first social experiences for a child. It’s a place where the child develops not just cognitively, but also socially and morally and imbibes the qualities that define his/her personality. A school is more than the classroom and the campus; it’s a mini version of the world for a child. Wilsonia, while standing for the age-old cliché of “Home away from Home”, at the same time, believes in the new modern outlook of providing an environment where the child grows into an independent, confident, compassionate and creative adult. Our legacy of over five decades has enabled us to partner with parents, alumni and professional experts from various fields to continue our endeavours to innovate, improve, and evolve according to the changes in the world. The new decade of the new millennium brings with it a lot of challenges and demands, globally, socially and professionally. Only a good, thorough education can prepare a child for such an uncertain yet exciting future. Therefore, as a parent, it’s their prerogative and duty to ensure that their child gets the best opportunities and exposure. At Wilsonia, we strive to create the most conducive environment for the child to learn, grow, and act; a place where they question and discover the answers for themselves and find their little rainbows on the horizon of a bright future. God bless all students and wishing all of them a beautiful future!
