Overview


The Maharani Gayatri Devi Girls’ schools, affectionately called M.G.D., was founded on 4th July, 1943, by Her Highness Maharani Gayatri Deviji , with His Highness Sir Sawai Man Singhji of Jaipur as its Patron. The distinguished Patron, Founder, the eminent Members of the Board of Governors, along with the dedication and experience of the founder principal, Miss Lillian G. Lutter. combined to establish this School from very small beginning, to the stature and prestige it commands today as a premier centre of value based education and learning. The School began on the lines of the British Public School Pattern, keeping our own cultural and traditional values intact and important. In order to mould and equip the students, then drawn from homes steeped in the claustrophobic orthodoxy of the “Purdah Age Aristocracy”, to step out into the mainstream world with confidence, and a will to do their best and face situations brought about by the winds of change that swept across the globe and India, post World War II. To achieve this end, the school was affiliated to the Cambridge School Certificate Syllabus. The first batch to appear for this examination had to travel to Ajmer, then the only centre in Rajputana, in 1946. As the veil of purdah lifted slowly and gently, requiring great tact and delicate handling by Their Highnesses and Miss Lutter, M.G.D. entered a phase of phenomenal growth. Its fame spread far and wide. Being Residential cum Day school girls from across the country and overseas joined in. Miss Lutter put things into “over drive” and by 1950 was able to overcome the purdah hurdle completely. M.G.D. was accepted as a member of the Public School Council of India, the first Girls’ public school in India and remained the only one until 1976 In 1950 M.G.D. also became a centre for the Cambridge Examination for Jaipur. In 1962 the school shifted to the Indian School Certificate Board. Currently the school follows the C.B.S.E. System. Students appear for a Board examination in class X, thereafter they can choose the stream they wish to pursue in class XI & XII. The shift to the C.B.S.E. Board has entailed the introduction of new elective subjects. Today Girls are more focused on career options. The commerce Stream has been added to the existing Arts and Science Streams. Business Studies and Accountancy were added on in 1990. At present the school offers 26 subjects to choose from.

Additional Details

In the summer of 1940, the Maharaja of Jaipur, His Highness Sir Sawai Man Singhji Bahadur brought home the legendry beautiful Princess Ayesha / Gayatri Devi, of Cooch Behar, as his bride. She was young and stunningly beautiful and came from far off Bengal. Jaipur awaited her arrival with baited breath, But the common citizen, and for that matter most of the aristocracy had no hope to behold her ethereal beauty---the ‘Purdah’ was very much in the way! Educated in England, Switzerland, and Shantiniketan and widely travelled, the young princess was brought up in a progressive and cosmopolitan environment. Coming from a great sports loving family, fond of all the outdoor pursuits of the Royals; Tennis, Swimming, Shikar and Horse riding. She loved outdoor activity. What she saw of the lives of the court ladies, their young daughters disturbed her a great deal. Their cloistered existence confined to the isolation of their own ‘havelies’ and mansions, the only change they could expect was, on marriage go to another ‘haveli’, another mansion and adjust to another family, where the general scenario would more or less be the same. The ladies moved around town, if at all, in heavily curtained cars & carriages. They had no idea or glimpse of the world outside.

His Highness, the Maharaja Sahib, being a modern thinking ruler, was very concerned that Girls’ education was one field in which Jaipur was far behind other states & provinces in India. So one morning he asked Her Highness what could be done to get the women out of the shackles of the ‘purdah’ ‘Give me a school and I will try’ she said, “Once the girls go to a school there will be no ‘purdah’ in a few years”. His Highness immediately summoned his Prime Minister Sir Mirza Ismail, and the Education & Finance Minister, Rao Bahadur Amarnath Atal . The order to allot land and plans ready for the school building was given. Her Highness discussed her ideas with the two ministers- The foundation of Maharani Gayatri Devi School was laid.
