La Martiniere College, Lucknow Reviews
Actually this isn't my experience but a classmate of mine( currently 7th grade) told me that he stayed 4 months only at this school before shifting as the seniors are really abusive. Though it is said to be one of the best schools in that region, according to him, the boarders were caned using golf clubs on their thighs and everywhere Apparently he still even has the scars. If they complained, they would be in even more trouble from the seniors. They would apparently make him stay up all night receiving punishments and for most of his 4 months of hell he slept in a cupboard (by choice) since he was scared of the seniors . This school seems to have a lot of hype and good reviews but this is what I heard from an actual person who has been there. If somebody had gone through the same experience, please say so. AGAIN THIS ISN'T MY EXPERIENCE BUT A classmate's
Only curricular activities no study at all. Its a place of show off, solid looks from outside, great architecture, design,n building but hollow system in terms of study. But yes very stick rules, almost every activity is made to do in the name of co curricular activities nothing else.
La Martiniere College (for boy's) Lucknow, is situated on the banks of the river Gomti in Lucknow. The school was founded in accordance to the will of French Major General Claude Martin (1735 to 1800). His day of passing the 13th of September is commemorated as the "Founder's Day" and rings to the melody of “Hail, Hail the name we own, Hail to the giver”… The college premises; are spread on a vast expanse of land in accordance to his will… The college and adjacent Golf Course form a large part of the cherished greens of the city Lucknow… Students from the school have made the Alma Mater proud by winning many accolades in all fields across the nation and internationally… The college curriculum promises wholesome growth by incorporating a rich curriculum not only academically but also a wide variety of sports ranging from the mundane football, cricket, tennis and swimming to include horse-riding and boxing too… The college premises should be on the visitor list for all; not only has it been featured in movies and songs but also; the well-kept grounds and tastefully restored and well maintained French architecture is a delight to eyes and must be included in every travelers itinerary… Former students will recall Martin Purva and Dilkusha Gardens as other nearby places to visit… The college boasts of alumni who have excelled in all fields of life and have given back to the community in accordance with the college song which goes on to say "May our founder's name endure, ever spotless ever pure"
Really nice both as a school and as a tourist place. The environment is nice and clean. The building is massive and will make you feel tiny in comparison.
La Martiniere originally named Constantia was the residence of Major-General Claude Martin, a wealthy Frenchman who arrived in India in 1751 Claude Martin acquired his fortune while serving Asaf-ud-Daula, the nawab of Awadh & he built the grand building of La Martiniere. Claude Martin who died in 1800 was, according to his will, buried at Constantia. Thus, it became his palace - mausoleum. Martin also willed that his palace tomb should become a school for boys & named La Martinière in his memory He left money to open schools in Calcutta & Lyon, his hometown in France, as well. During the Indian Mutiny of 1857, against the British, the Principal, Masters & boys of La Martiniere played a unique role in defending The Residency which was under siege In 1938 as recognition of their role, the College was awarded colours or flag bearing the legend Defence of Lucknow, 1857. It is the only school in the world to be awarded a British battle honour McGill University in Canada is the only other institution in the British Empire to be awarded the same honour, for its role in World War I. Facing Constantia is the Laat, a solid fluted column 40 m high with a cupola. It is said to be the grave of Claude Martin’s horse, or perhaps a lighthouse. In 1995, on the 150th anniversary, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma, released a two-rupee postage stamp in honour of the school This, again, is a mark of distinction that only a few other institutions in India enjoy. It is a flourishing educational institution, which is proud of its glorious past.
