We, at Future Senior Secondary School, believe that in life every moment is an opportunity to learn. Our students grow in various directions. Their interests are kindled by the large number of different stimuli provided by the ‘hands on’ methodology formulated by us.
Smart Class & Digi boards
Future School was the first school in Ambur to have implemented Smart Class Technology in all our classrooms to help students leverage new communication technologies to bridge the gap between classroom learning and the real world. Our fully digital classrooms along with virtual labs provide teacher-led content solutions to enhance student learning outcomes. Smart class aids in greater clarity in concept-based learning and provides better teaching strategies to assess students and deliver well designed learning modules. Every classroom at Future School is a window into the world.
Our current teaching methods enable students to practice and sharpen various academic skills like reading, writing, speaking, critical-thinking, mathematics and creativity, on a daily basis. Moreover, our teaching methods coordinate across different subjects and skills to keep the students alert and improve their results. Learning concepts are followed up by activities and assignments that reinforce the evaluation pattern of CBSE.
We believe in the holistic development of each child, and extra-curricular activities are an especially important of this development. The school has made extensive arrangements to help the students learn different arts, craft, sports, music, dance, archery and vocal training to nature the talents of each futurians. Various hobby clubs which develop creative and logistic skills have been setup.
Evaluation of Work Education/Pre-vocational Education, Art Education and Physical and Health Education will be done by the schools. CBSE has developed guidelines for internal assessment in these subjects which the schools are expected to keep in view while organizing teaching and evaluation of these subjects. Following publications of the Boards are recommended for their use and reference which give outlines of syllabi and hints for evaluation:
- Work Education in Schools
- Art Education in Schools
- Health and Physical Education in Schools
Work Education aims at restoring dignity and respect to all types of manual work, promoting self-reliance in meeting one’s daily needs and those of one’s family and community, increasing productivity through the development of proper work skills and values, and promoting commitment to the welfare of the society through suitable programme of social work or community service. This is a two-year syllabus for classes IX and X.
Art and Craft
At Future School, we believe that nurturing a child’s creativity is vital for his/her overall development. We have art and craft periods for pre-primary, primary and secondary grades, while students in middle and high school may choose art or craft as their club. We have teachers dedicated to guiding students in these activities. In addition, students’ works are exhibited in the school gallery. In the Art & Craft periods, children are taught right from the fundamentals of drawing, sketching, shading, and painting, to constructing complex figures.
Sports are an integral part of the learning process at Future. We believe that sports not only keep students at the top of their health but also enhance their learning process and improve their level of thinking. Hence, to make sure students get the most out of their Physical Education classes, Future School campus is well equipped with all the equipment for multiple sports and experienced coach specialized in these sports.
We at Future School, strongly believe that playing team sports helps inculcate concepts of teamwork and communication into the young learner’s mind. Thus, we have dedicated acres of the Future school campus for a full-sized basketball, volleyball/throw ball, kho-kho, and kabaddi court, along with a football field and cricket nets.
This allows students of all grades to enjoy and learn these sports with their friends and coach in a professional manner.
Dance and Western Music
Children are exposed to varied kinds of music, and dance forms, and encouraged by the dance masters to formulate pieces of music and choreograph steps on their own. Children in the younger grades have Dance and Western Music classes incorporated into their weekly schedules, allowing them to unwind and express themselves in the most creative way possible! During assemblies, festival celebrations, or the grand annual day event, children get to showcase their skills through melodious musical performances, and dances to peppy tracks.
Through Karate at School, our aim is to bring the benefits the karate training to as many children as possible, helping them to build their self confidence and emotional skills so they have the chance to reach their full potential in everything they do.
Training in Karate will help the school students be the best they can be and use their body and mind to their fullest potential possible. The areas of specialization include:-
- Self Discipline

With the safety of school girls becoming a cause for concern, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) recently asked its affiliated schools to train girls studying in Classes 1 to 10 in self-defence techniques. Experts said the training should be made compulsory in all schools.
A unique aspect of Yoga is the mental focus and attention that they exercise while doing the postures. The result is a toning up of both the mind and the body.
In adopting and maintaining a posture there is a co-ordination between the nervous system and the muscular system, that influences the physical and mental behaviours.
Yoga has been made compulsory in CBSE curriculam for Classes XI and XII while for students of other classes it should be held “at least” twice a week as part of their physical activity programme, the government said.
At Future School, Students will develop a sense of well-being, and will increase their capacity of mental concentration. It will find harmony between the mind and the body. IT makes them develop proper breathing habits.
The yoga Training is being managed by our yoga master, Dr. K. Neela Krishna Azhwar, who is a professional yoga trainer and has achieved seven world record. He has also been honoured with many awards for yoga therapy.
“Archery is a sport that includes everyone- the sporty and the nerds”.
Archery is a sport that’s fun, but also allows participants of any age or skill level to compete against others or challenge themselves individually. The sport has long helped archers gain confidence and physical strength, but teachers have discovered archery also helps students with math. Once the kids realize they can only shoot if they follow the rules, they get it. Even kids with the worst behavioral problems straighten up because they know if they follow the rules, they can shoot. Archery is the only sport I’ve seen that is this structured. Kids learn to wait their turn, follow directions, set goals and challenge themselves. Once they’re instructed, archery develops character, and these students will benefit for the rest of their lives.
Students are taught the skills of debating and, through the process, learn to construct meaningful arguments in a professional debating format. Future School takes part in several debate competitions which provide the necessary skills to help students compete with each other.
Quizzing is a great way for students to nurture a competitive spirit as well as develop an awareness of the world around them, and at the quiz club we guide students through a variety of fields of knowledge required for quizzing. The club is run by students who have been part of several quiz competitions across the nation.
Circle Time creates a secure and transparent environment that allows even the children who may otherwise be shy or afraid to speak up, to confidently voice their opinions. During Quality Circle Time, children develop key social skills, such as waiting for their turn to speak, listening to others, respecting differing opinions, and abiding by rules. Class bonding and unity are also solidified in this manner, and children are engaged in all areas of development. The sessions may be concluded with a few energizing games, stories, or activities.
At Future School, learning is not bound by the walls of the classroom. Field trips allow students to engage with the real world and discover the relevance of what they learn in the classroom. However, field trips are not limited to science. We include field trips in every subject. For example, students learning about the Accountancy and Economics are taken to the nearby banks to learn furthermore.
We believe in providing ample opportunities and platforms to each and every child to build leadership and dynamic qualities.
At Future School, we take pride in the fact that students of Grades 6 to 12 elect their house leaders in a democratic fashion. Captains and Vice Captains for each of the 4 houses – Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Topaz – are elected at the beginning of the academic year. These elections are fiercely contested with posters, speeches, nominations, withdrawals, ballots etc. similar to political elections.
