The School grew from strength to strength with new buildings and many more students and
teachers. South Point High School was the first co-educational School in the city, to be
affiliated to the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education. It sent out its first School
Final batch in 1958. Upgraded to the Higher Secondary level on 1 April 1960, the High School
shifted to its present home at 82/7A Ballygunge Place on 8 April 1970. South Point has the rare distinction
of winning a place in the Guinness Book of Records (1984-1992) as the world’s largest School.
It is now a large family comprising nearly 13,500 students, 325 teachers and 225 non-teaching staff-members. But the enormity of the institution in no way hampers the bonding between staff and students. Excellence is the buzzword down every corridor – excellence in academics, in co-curriculars, in creativity, in producing an impressive alumni. South Point School has Nursery, Transition and Classes I to V. Students then study in South Point High School from Classes VI to X under the Central Board of Secondary Education/ West Bengal Board of Secondary Education. Thereafter, a majority of Pointers continue their studies in Classes XI and XII, under the Central Board of Secondary Education/ West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education.
