Know More


Mayo College is a boys' residential public school in Ajmer, Rajasthan, India. It was founded in 1875 by Richard Bourke, 6th Earl of Mayo who was also the Viceroy of India from 1869 to 1872. The school is one of the oldest public boarding schools of India.

The College was opened in October 1875, with Sir Oliver St.John as the first Principal and one boy, Maharaja Mangal Singh of Alwar.

The present Director is Lt Gen Surendra Kulkarni (Retd), who joined in 2015 and is the seventeenth Principal of the School.

Mayo College is considered among the better known boarding schools in the world and is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education - CBSE. The School has 12 Boarding Houses - 8 Senior Houses, 1 Holding House & 3 Junior Houses, home to over 800 boys from Class IV to XII.

We, at Mayo, are committed to a holistic education and view education as having intrinsic value, quite apart from its function of increasing vocational opportunities. Our responsibility lies not only in the development of academic skills, but also vital non cognitive skills.

The team Mayo comprises well-qualified teachers and instructors supported by administrative staff. Our endeavour is to provide an enriched environment to make teaching and learning a rewarding experience. The curriculum is relevant to the needs of a changing world. It promotes and inculcates academic excellence along with leadership, self-confidence, mutual respect and a sense of global identity. Being a residential school, we take adequate measures to ensure quality pastoral care for our students.

We look forward to being equal partners in your child's education. Give your child the advantage of Mayo and discover why generations of Mayoites are so proud of their Alma Mater!
