  • By his innovative ideas the Administrator Mr.M.Ilayaraja,B.E.,M.B.A. leads the school towards the destination.


Dharani Educational Trust (DET) has always been underpinned by a strong moral purpose and commitment to improving life chances for all young people especially in the rural area it has been founded in. The aim of the Trust is to ensure there is a clear focus on raising standards of teaching and learning. It continues to develop a cost effective, sustainable organization and a business model that delivers efficiency, effectiveness and economies of scale in order to free up more resources directly for pupils and for academy improvement.

As a Trust, it is building on reciprocity and partnership to develop excellent opportunities and ambitious, aspirational outcomes for all, whilst nurturing self worth and resilience. Alongside this reciprocal partnership arrangement sit clear accountability measures facilitated by strong governance and quality assurance.
