Uma Rana Public School is about the spirit, morals and ethics of life. The spirit, that makes human beings humane, pervades the school, moulding students to steer the future. A natural and tranquil institution, it nurtures an ideal educational environment for both students and teachers. A blend of tradition and modernity, this institution imparts a natural impetus towards a Uma Rana's quest for excellence. The beauty and invigorating atmosphere with centrally air-conditioned campus of the school is a result of its unique setting. In 2006-07, Uma Rana Public School branched out.It is a senior secondary school at Sanghol, with complete amenities, which is accommodating the students from class Toddlers to Grade XII.
The Uma Rana Public School is part of the Lord Rana Education City, Sanghol was inaugurated by former President of India Late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, is located on Ludhiana-Chandigarh highway. It provides to the rural youth educational opportunities that emphasize skills & knowledge which will allow the student to adjust through a lifetime of social and technological changes. It was in the year 2001 that members of the Sanghol Panchayat and other eminent persons of the area met with Lord Diljit Rana, an NRI settled in Northern Ireland, U.K. while he was on a visit to India. The deputation requested Lord Rana to establish a higher secondary school at Sanghol for the benefit of students of the area. Lord Rana has a vision to provide world class educational infrastructure at this place so that new generation is able to march a head of times. The school is now a multi faculty co-educational institution.
The school aims at the overall development growth of the students and strives to inculcate in them a positive and healthy, physical, emotional and intellectual attitude. Efforts are so directed as to develop in them consciousness towards social obligations, appreciation of Indian art, culture, music, dance and yoga, together as these combines to form the hard care of a well-balanced personality.
The objective of the school is to equip the students mentally, physically and culturally to become worthy citizens of free India, to zealously guard and retain its noble traditions and make progress in a modern, scientific way.

I visualize education as a weapon for personality development of a person Economic Development of a place is also linked to the level of education provided there. Sanghol, which is closely associated with my roots has lacked in educational infrastructure. Educational Backwardness of this area has always haunted me. My firm conviction is that education in rural areas can bring all out prosperity to the people
With the AIM of providing an opportunity for acquiring a standard education SMT. Jawaladevi Memorial Trust was formed about 5 Years ago.The trust has created infrastructure for providing varied education in a rural setting. The endeavor is to help those who have desire to acquire best education but lack resources to visit urban area for the same.
Uma Rana Public School has been established not only to provide best education but also create congenial environment for the overall development of the students. I am sure Smt. Jawala Devi Memorial Trust will help realizing the goals and aspirations of the people and transform them into good citizens.
The president of India Dr. A.P.J.Abdul Kalam is happy to know that the Sanghol educational complex under the Smt. Jawala Devi Memorial Trust is being inagurated and a Souvenir is also being brought out on the occassion.
I am Deeply touched by the laudable efforts of the Rt. Honorable Lord Rana M.B.E.
