Private Schools of Lahore
Lahore Grammar School
Lahore Grammar School (LGS) is a group of private academic preparatory institution which is having branches in all the major cities of Pakistan like Lahore, Islamabad, Karachi, Sialkot, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Multan, and Gujarat.
The initial focus of LGS was the promotion of female education. However, it was soon realized that quality educational institutions were needed for young boys also. Today, Lahore Grammar School provides education to both boys and girls till A’ Level. It is delivering pre-school, primary and secondary school education. The LGS College for women offers a degree programmed in arts and sciences as well as bachelors in computers.
Lahore Grammar School was established in Lahore in January 1979 by a group of women with a commitment to quality education and with the aim of providing a creative alternative to the existing educational facilities available in the country. The nationalization of educational institutions in 1972 had led to an alarming decline in the standard of instruction and facilities provided in most schools and colleges. Interventions in the realm of education were thus critical to arrest this abysmal state of affairs.
In 1978 the Government announced that it would welcome initiatives in the educational sector. Taking advantage of this, a group of women from varied professional backgrounds, including education, and with the shared objective of contributing in this field, decided to set up a girls’ School .

The Lahore Lyceum
The Lahore Lyceum’s aim is to bring out the best in a child mentally, intellectually, academically, physically and culturally by developing the attitudes, abilities and skills in the students required to meet the Global Challenges. As indicated in the school logo “Knowledge for strength and probity”, the major aim and objectives are directed towards significant contribution and participation in the development of nation building.
Lahore Lyceum has started as a small school with 30 students and 12 teachers and have slowly grown to a school of over 750 students and 82 teachers and counselors. Responding to the need and demand for a good quality educational institution at Lahore, a group of public spirited, highly motivated and renowned educationists got together to set up this institution in 1983. At the outset, only one building at a beautiful location on Aziz Avenue, Canal Road was selected to house the school. The idea was so perfectly transformed into a plan and was so skillfully executed that it received not only an encouraging response but also a warm welcome from the people.
In a short period, the school reached up to its maximum capacity. There was a great demand for further expansion, so another building was selected to open a separate girls’ branch almost adjacent to the main campus. The hard work, dedication, honesty and sincerity of the purpose worked and need for yet more branches came forth more forcefully. Campuses in important localities at Lahore and other main cities were set up. In approximately 28 years’ time, 12 campuses with a large number of students from early school to O’ level classes had come up at main cities of Pakistan.

Sacred Heart School
The purpose of the Sacred Heart School is to groom its pupils through a well designed curriculum into well integrated and accomplished young women who will be able to take their place with dignity and poise in a multifaceted society and that they will also be able to make a significant contribution to it.
The beginnings of the school can be said to be closely linked to the Great Famine which plagued our country at the end of the 19th Century. It was this famine that was instrumental in bringing the Sisters to the sub-continent in the year 1897. They answered the call from the Roman Catholic Hierarchy to leave their home, kith and kin to care for the many children who had become orphaned and abandoned. However, by the end of 1906 the Great Famine had become history and the flow of orphaned children slowed down to just 70.
By 1908 the number had further decreased and only some 50 children remained to be cared for by the Sisters this meant that some of the rooms which constituted the orphanage were no longer required. All possibilities of an additional work of charity to bring in some financial aid for the remaining children were explored but all proved futile. It is well known that in time of great adversity that God enters more into our lives and a misfortune can bring about another ‘good’. It was thus that the Sacred Heart School came into being.
