  • History & Memorable Moments

The Institution was first established in 1923 in the erstwhile Princely State of Hyderabad due to the initiative of Mr. H. Wakefield under the Nizam of Hyderabad (the erstwhile royal family of Hyderabad) and was meant exclusively for the education of the sons of the Jagirdars. Its first Principal, Mr. Shawcross, might be called the founder of the Jagirdar's College. It was the first residential school catering to the sons of the Jagirdars and Zamindars in those days. [1]

After the abolition of the Jagirdari/Zamindari system in 1950, the Indian Government decided that the Jagirdar's College should be converted to an Independent Public School, thus throwing open its portals to all, irrespective of class or creed. The Jagirdar's College was reorganised in 1951 as The Hyderabad Public School and was affiliated as a member of the Indian Public Schools Conference (IPSC). In 1952, the Hyderabad Public School Society was formed with the Late Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, former President of India, as the first Chairman of the Society. Mr. John W. R. Kempe was appointed the first principal of the school. [1]

The school has grown immensely in strength since then and today, it has about 3000 boys and girls from diverse backgrounds on its rolls. It boasts an excellent library, well-equipped science and computer laboratories, art rooms, carpentry and book-binding workshops, a music room, and numerous sports facilities. [1]

Since its inception in 1923, the school celebrated its Golden Jubilee in December 1973 and its Diamond Jubilee in December 1984. Its Platinum Jubilee was celebrated in 1999. [1]
