Late Mr. Kuldip Singh, the Founder of Homerton Grammar School and the youngest son of Late
Mr. Gurdev Singh, is a name to reckon with amongst the Faridabad Education industry. He has won accolades in the region for creating one of the best schools in Faridabad. His futuristic vision for imparting high-quality education in Faridabad has been exemplary, and a guiding light for many others to follow.
He held a Master's degree in English literature and wanted to make every student in Faridabad articulate in the language that he so loved. His tenacity and perseverance in imparting concept-based teaching to students has been particularly commendable. His past experience includes teaching at a school in Phagwara until 1966 after completing his Master’s in English from Punjab University in the year 1964.

In 1966, he went to England to pursue his Certificate in English Studies and Education from Coventry College of Education which gave him a fresh perspective and helped him in visualising a bigger picture.
He taught in London for nearly 6 years before attending Homerton College, Cambridge University to specialise in Secondary Mathematics and obtained a Certificate in Teaching Mathematics. He then taught Mathematics at various secondary schools in England for another 6 years.

Late Mr. Singh was passionate about travel and had a keen spirit for adventure. He was also a voracious reader interested in literature, mathematics, physics and, life in general. He also authored two books on Physics which were very well-recieved. His insatiable desire for learning took him to new places and enabled him to gain a wealth of knowledge that he wanted to share with the students of Homerton Grammar School via this initiative. A learned personality and a noble soul - the management of Homerton Grammar School continues to walk the path shown by him.

Lt. Mrs. Rajinder Kaur was Homerton Grammar School's first Principal. She has been a trailblazer in showing the world that women can achieve anything, no matter how difficult the circumstances are.

Born in 1949, Mrs. Kaur excelled in extracurricular activities when women were deprived of the liberty to participate in extracurricular activities or explore work opportunities.

She led her school music band and later won an elusive medal in a volleyball district championship. Interestingly, Mrs. Kaur also chose to undertake further study in the music-related area. Another feather to her cap was added after she pursued a master's degree in music focused on Sitar as an instrument.

Mrs. Singh purchased Homerton's first bus on her dime. She also contributed to the construction of the school building in Sector 21A. Under her dynamic leadership, Homerton Grammar School is dedicated to providing a world-class education that is believed to produce world-class scholars.
