It was founded in 1906 by the Church Missionary Society(CMS).

It was built on land donated by the Kabaka of Buganda.
The original vision was to train sons of Kings and Chiefs, therefore it began as a boys’ school.

In 1934, girls were admitted as well, thus became co-educational. It is now a government aided A- Level mixed Boarding school under Church of Uganda ( Anglican ) of Namirembe Diocese.

The school is rated as one of the best performing academic institutions in our country.
