School History

Origin and history:

Dr. Syt. G.D Birla, the great educationist, philanthropist and business leader, charted his dream of transforming the Hamlet ‘Pilani’, his ancestral village, into a thriving ,bustling Knowledge Hub.

Birla Balika Vidyapeeth has its genesis as the Girls' boarding school in 1941, a humble philanthropic mission to educate the girls of the freedom fighters. It began with just about 40 students and 5 teachers helmed under the visionary Leadership and acumen of Smt. Deviki Amma. The School had its unique distinction of being a progressive institution of learning, imparting Quality Education steeply rooted in Indian cultural ethos and values with its myriad co-curricular activities viz. NCC Band, Sports, Athletics, Classical Indian Dances, Art, Music, Home Sciences. The School since its inception blazed new trails of excellence in consonance with the changing educational scenario and national aspirations as well.

The inception of Birla Balika Vidyapeeth as a girls’ school, under the aegis of Birla Education Trust, was a miracle in itself as it spearheaded a virtual revolution in school education. The profound reason for its existence was – Schools for girls did not exist then!

In 1952, Birla Balika Vidyapeeth became a member of the elite IPSC group. Thus began a journey of experiential learning, specializing in education for girls. BBV sets precedent for tomorrow’s benchmarks in Indian school education world. We, Vidyapeethians, handle our crystal reputation with panache and great humility.

Mentoring young minds, BBV blends the traditional values with a scientific and progressive pedagogy. Our unique green campus spread over 27 acres in the intellectually resonating/pulsating campus of Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), is an ideal set up for nurturing our girls.
