Delhi to have 10 new specialised schools of Excellence soon


New Delhi

The directorate of education (DoE) has made an announcement that ten new schools of specialised excellence (SoSEs) will soon be opened in the academic session of 2022-23. Also, Armed Forces Preparatory School (AFPS) will also be made operational in the Jharoda Kalan area of Delhi. With the opening of ten new SoSEs, total of 31 SoSEs will be operational in the state.

According to a senior DoE official, “Ten more schools across four specialisations (four STEM, two humanities, two performing and visual arts and two high-end 21st-century skills) are being added, while the AFPS will be operational in Jharoda Kalan. Thus, the total number of SoSEs in the academic year 2022-23 will be 31.”

He further added “All SoSEs shall be affiliated to the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE) operating in partnership with the International Baccalaureate (IB). Admissions will be offered in Class 9 in all the schools and in Class 11 in the STEM SoSEs and the AFPS through an aptitude test or on the basis of a child’s demonstrated interest in earlier classes.”

The specialised schools were launched by the government of Delhi as choice-based schools. The schools focus to provide world-class infrastructure, facilities, the best possible use of technology, and a defined curriculum. The schools were launched with the idea of experiential learning through projects, field visits, and internships in the choice of field of students.

The online application process will begin soon and an aptitude test will be conducted for selection around March 15-30. Interested students should be residents of Delhi and can be students of any government-aided school. 50% of seats are reserved for students from government schools while the remaining seats are open for students from other recognised schools in Delhi.
