Bhavans Thrissur Kendra was established on 4th November 1978 under the visionary leadership of Shri. P.B. Nair.
Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan probably left a lasting impression on Shri PB Nair during his sojourn as the Regional Director of the Press Trust of India (PTI), Bombay. During his tenure afterwards as one of the Directors of Dhanalakshmi Bank having registered office in Thrissur, Shri. P.B. Nair was able to bring like- minded luminaries into realizing the dream of starting this great institution.
With stalwarts at the helm, the Bhavans Thrissur Kendra made a promising beginning with Shri NS Mahadevan (Then Chairman of Dhanalakshmi Bank) as the Chairman and Shri PB Nair, himself as the Secretary. The three Vice-chairmen were Shri Chithran Namboodiripad, Dr SK Pisharody, and Shri TAG Menon. Shri Pujara was the treasurer. Dr KF Manavalan, Dentist, KPB Nair and Shri Pankajakshan, Chartered accountant, were the committee members. It was in 1979 that the Kendra announced the setting up of an educational institution affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi.

The humble beginning:

Starting in a two-room tenement on Shornur Road, Patturaikkal, with 16 students under the guidance of Smt Ammini Brahmani Amma (Retired Deputy Director of Education, Thrissur) moving to Natananiketan, a hall situated in Shornur Road in 1980, and to a larger building owned by Shri PB Nair in 1982, the progress was fast and steady.
1983- Smt Annapurni Shastri, wife of the Deputy Commissioner of Income tax in Thrissur joined as the first Principal.
1983 also saw the setting up of the Parent Teacher Association with Shri KS Unni as its President.
The large-heartedness of Swami Mridanandaji Maharaj, the then President of the Sri Ramakrishna Matt, who with the approval from Srimat Ranganandaji Maharaj, , the then President of Sri Ramakrishna Matt and world wide provided Bhavans the Matt's large house on Korappath Lane, off Palace Road where today stands the well-known Bhavans Town School with the gigantic structure of the Sarva Dharma Maithri Pratishtan.
Later, a five-acre plot 7 kms east of Thrissur was bought. This is where Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's Vidya Mandir, Poochatty made a start. Ever since, it has surged ahead and continues to do so with the blessings of God Almighty and the guidance and support of its various stakeholders.
In response to increasing demand for admission to Bhavan’s Schools known for quality education, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan Thrissur started its second CBSE School, Kualpati Munshi Bhavan’s Vidya Mandir at Pottore, Kolazhy Panchayat, Thrissur, named after the illustrious founder of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Kulapati K.M. Munshi in June 2004.
What we see today is the fruit of the relentless and selfless efforts of innumerable individuals.




The Bhavan’s Thrissur Kendra in its endeavour to turn its schools into Centres of Excellence launched the Awakening Series - Jagaran in 2019. Right from the outset, one of its prime objectives was to hold a mega exhibition.
Bhavan’s Vidya Mandir, Poochatty, Thrissur, realised that dream on January 21, 2023. The seed sown bore fruit in the form of ANAVARAN 2023 - a full-fledged Art and Science Exhibition on the theme ‘Innovations Leading to Sustainable Development.’
The much-awaited one-day exhibition was inaugurated by Dr P. Indira Devi, ICAR, Emeritus Professor, KAU. 
Termed broadly as Temples of Innovation, the exhibition consisted of pavilions in which students were divided into groups and were allotted different topics according to their classes.
Pavilion 1 called Effervescence was the Physical and Natural Science section. The topics touched upon were Science and Technology, Energy- its renewable and non-renewable forms, production and conservation, Water sources—their conservation and preservation, Ecosystem, Food and Nutrition, and Science in Everyday Life.
Pavilion 2 called Mathemagic was the Mathematical Science section where working and still models, charts on the use of Art and Craft in Mathematics, Geometry in real life, forest and weather, Environmental Sustainability and Mathematical Modelling technology were presented by the students. 
Pavilion 3, Glowing Legacy connected to Social Science presented projects on various ancient, medieval and modern Indian art and architecture, tribal livelihood and culture, food and festivals of India, glimpses of early civilisation and SDG (Sustainable Development Goal) models.
Pavilion 4 was called Reset, connected to Information Technology. The Computer Science department portrayed the theme of sustainable development and digital STEM.
Pavilion 5 - Udbhaavana - Art Integrated Learning showcased how a wide range of topics could be integrated with various art forms. The main attraction was the Juice and Chips Corner where the main ingredients were different types of flowers.
Pavilion 6 - Kaleidoscope- displayed a whole lot of photographs taken by the aspiring photographers of the school, the students themselves.
Pavilion 7 - Petal’s Pallette where Art and Craft items beautifully brought out the creativity of children without losing touch of the main theme - sustainable development. 
Pavilion 8 – Zenith - Linguistics and Performances was an amalgam of all the languages.  The highlight was the stage performances of the children, which ranged from dances to songs, skit, chenda melam to mention a few, that left the audience in raptures.
ANAVARAN, in the words of the Chief Guest Dr Indira Devi, was “a wonderful show of the blend of student talent and careful mentoring by the teachers.”

Cultural programme

The Thrissur Kendra in association with Atma Foundation staged a Bharatanatyam dance recital titled ‘Anthara’ at Bhavan’s Thrissur Kendra auditorium on September 18, 2022.
‘Anthara’ explored the various hues of human relationships: between the self and the soul, relation between friends, the bonding of the mother and child, the sacred bond between the Guru and shishya and the complex relationship between lovers.
