The educational institution which is today known as
In early 1930’s, The Rishi Valley Trust (established 1928) purchased the Rajghat Fort campus and decided to shift the school and college gradually as the new buildings took shape.
The children’s school building was constructed in 1934 alongwith a couple of hostels (later known as I and II hostels and now called Gokul and Shanti Vihar). Sundemath Kar was requested by Rabindra Nath Tagore to design the assembly hall. The school got its present name in 1939 (in memory of Dr. Annie Besant).
