Brief History

Gokhale Memorial Girls' College, KolkataEstablished in 1938 as an extension of Gokhale Memorial Girls’ School, Gokhale Memorial Girls’ College has emerged today as one of the premier educational institutions in the eastern part of India in its own right, offering state-of-the art quality education to countless aspiring female students. Sarala Ray, popularly known as Mrs. P. K. Ray, a great social reformer and educationist, founded the Gokhale Memorial Girls’ School in 1920. One of the first Indian women to acquire a University degree, Sarala Ray’s primary objective was not merely to churn out women graduates but to train women so as to develop their thoughts and ideals as right citizens, capable home builders and conscientious workers.


This institution has been named after Gopal Krishna Gokhale, a distinguished teacher, educationist and freedom fighter. Sarala Ray was greatly inspired by his educational aspirations especially for women. The Institution was founded as a memorial to Gokhale, the great patriot of India, to serve the cause of education of girls in the country.

Dr. S. E. Rani Ghosh was the first Principal of the School and College. She founded the College and served it from its inception in 1938 till her death on 18th November 1961. A true educationist, she nurtured the Institution from an Intermediate College of Arts and Science to a Three Year Degree College. Under her guidance, the Institution gained a wide reputation and lived up to the expectations of Gokhale and Sarala Ray.

Gokhale Memorial Girls’ College is the first college to be affiliated to teach Psychology by the Calcutta University in 1957 in the Three Year Degree Course.

The college gradually expanded and its affiliation was extended to teach various Honours subjects.
