Well done BCS !!!… and Congratulations to all who have contributed to achieveing this distinction… let the school march forward on the path of self improvement. The distance from 4th to 1st is not far.
We OC’s have always felt that BCS was ‘Numero Uno’.
I thought so too Col Chauhan … that BCS is NO1. But perhaps that’s a (slightly) biased opinion! Anyways, great to see the result… keep it up.
BCS Ranks 1st in our heart!! I am proud of BCS…Keep it up..mates!

I think the survey was not correct. It should have been No 1.Any way ,may be they realise next year. Congratulations BCS. May I request the Headmaster to give some credit to the batch which passed out this year (2010). Please dont be harsh on them,they produced very good results and at least they deserve to be honoured with their full school blazer/spartans, which was denied to them as a punishment for ???????

Having been Chief Guest at the Inter-House Boxing Finals last Friday 13th August 2010 at BCS, I took my stand in the Ring and in a clear crisp tenor tone said these words….’ Regardless of what the world may say, I SAY BISHOP COTTON SCHOOL IS THE NUMBER ONE SCHOOL IN INDIA” The Youngsters leapt in the air…!!!!!! The Brass Band took up a healthy lead and the Ghost and Soul of Bishop Cotton smiled down upon us…

My Warmest Regards,
