Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bishop Cotton Girls' School, also known as BCGS, is a private all-girls' school for boarders and day scholars in Bangalore, Karnataka, India. The school offers academic scholarships, which aid students from lower income backgrounds to afford tuition and boarding fees. It has been awarded the International School award by the British Council, and is regarded as one of Asia's leading academic institutions. Founded in 1865, it is one of the oldest established boarding schools in Asia. The school was named after Bishop George Edward Lynch Cotton, the son of an Army Captain, who died leading his Regiment in battle. He was a scholar of Westminster School, and a graduate of Cambridge. In 1836 he was appointed Assistant Master at Rugby by Doctor Thomas Arnold, one of the founders of the British Public School System.show more
