The group had its humble beginning with a Primary School in 1976, which was upgraded as a High School in 1984 and as a Vocational Higher Secondary School in 1995. In 2006 Pattom Thanu Pillai Memorial College of Education was established for conducting the B.Ed. course with seven optional subjects affiliated to the University of Kerala.
