Breeks Memorial Anglo-Indian Higher Secondary School, Ooty

Breeks Memorial Anglo-Indian Higher Secondary School at Ooty is a Christian Co-educational School established in 1874. It was named after J. W. Breeks, the first Commissioner of the Nilgiris. 



On those days it was decided that a memorial in the form of a school should be built in his name. The school was started in a heritage building, which is now a part of the Nilgiris District Court complex. The special architectural features are the cloister vault roof, the arched masonry decorations.
