The Air Force School, Chakeri, Kanpur, India, is located opposite the new building of Kendriya Vidyalaya No 2, Chakeri Kanpur. and is adjacent to the Indian Air Force Senior Commissioned Officers Enclave (popularly called N1).

History

It started as a primary school opened by an Indian Air Force Officer's war widow Ms. V Kohli in a community centre building located at the Indian Air Force Junior Commissioned Officers Enclave.

The school became so busy that it started operating in two shifts, which is still the norm. It also upgraded including Higher secondary divisions followed by secondary and ultimately senior secondary classes.

The Indian Air Force took over the school and the leading lady was offered a position of Vice Principal - Primary Division. The new principal Mr. C Chatterjee was from a boarding school background in eastern India. At this stage (1984) the school moved into the existing building, of which only the L shaped front and central structure was present then.

The fee structure was almost free education to Armed Forces Employee Dependents but fees were charged to civilians.

There is another Air Force run school in Cantonment area, which is next to No. 7 Air Force Hospital, Kanpur; but it is not as famous, as it is primarily meant only for primary education of Hospital staff wards.

School activities include sports, gardening, NCC, scouts, mountain climbing, and para gliding.
