St. Ignatius' of Loyola High School, commonly called Loyola High School and was earlier known as St. Paul's Secondary School, is a private Catholic primary and secondary school for boys located in Kolkata, West Bengal, India. The school was founded in 1961 by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Calcutta under the right and to religious and linguistic minorities by the India (Art. 29 and 30)[1][9] and is now run by the Jesuits, and administered by Catholic Archdiocese of Kolkata.

The school is recognized by the Education Department of the Government of West Bengal and under the Anglo India Board of West Bengal and affiliated to the Indian School Certificate of Secondary Education Examination, Delhi (ICSE) and Indian School Certificate Examinations Delhi (ISC).[1][9][10][11]


Loyola High School was started in 1961 by Msgr. John D'Souza, then Parish Priest, who in 1960 by a deed of agreement between the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Calcutta and the Daughters of the Cross established St. Paul's Secondary School for the secondary students from classes V to X only. Children completing Primary School from St. Paul's Boarding and Day School were absorbed into Class V in this institution. Days rolled by and Loyola High School started its own Primary section.

Thus, the name “St. Paul's Secondary School“ no longer appeared to be appropriate. It was decided that the school having been found by St. Ignatius Parish for the children of the Parish, should be named after the Patron Saint, St. Ignatius of Loyola.

Loyola High School came into being on Easter Sunday - 22 April 1984. In 2004, in order to accommodate the ISC stream, the primary section of the school has been shifted to the new building at 51, Ekbalpore Road, Kolkata - 700023.[2]
