It is a predominantly boarding school existing to provide an affordable International education (drawn from a British tradition) based on sound principles for 360 students aged 5 to 19 years. It seeks to provide schooling for children whose parents work in Asia, Africa and the Gulf Region in addition to others who require an International education.

As a boarding school the residential care provided at Hebron is personal and endeavours to create a home away from home. Hebron is a lively, busy community in which gifts and talents of both staff and students have ample opportunity for expression and development.
Staff who work at Hebron School do so out of a sense of calling and service. The school provides remuneration at local Indian rates, as well as full accommodation. Hebron staff have a high degree of job satisfaction and a strong appreciation for the School's aims and purpose. Most staff leave with a strong sense of the strategic role that Hebron plays and with deep appreciation for the years they have served at Hebron. In recent years several staff have returned for a ‘second innings’ – testimony to the value they place on serving at Hebron.
The school is committed to its motto, ‘Deo Supremo’ (God First).
