About the School
One of the oldest educational institutions in the country in the youngest state of the country.
The Hyderabad Public School is a co-educational, day & residential school in Hyderabad. One of the oldest educational institutions in the country in the youngest state of the country – it is this range that best defines The Hyderabad Public School.
In 1919, a proposal was presented to the Seventh Nizam, H.E.H. Mir Osman Ali Khan by the Hon’ble H. Weikfield, Director General of the Court of Wards (Department of Revenue) to establish a fully residential school on the lines of Eton College, London, to give the sons of Jagirdars an enriching learning experience.
In 1923, the Jagirdar’s College opened its doors to five students and six teachers under the first Founder-Principal Mr.H.W.Shawcross. The first batch appeared for Senior Cambridge ‘O’ levels in 1929. By 1930, the strength of the School had risen to 150.
The bountiful land for the school was bequeathed by various Jagirdars and purchased from generous civilians. H.E. Lady Vicar-Ul-Umra gave 89 acres of land from her Begumpet Estate. The Government levied a cess of 2% on the annual Jagirdari income to construct the school buildings, develop infrastructure and run it to educate the sons of Jagirdars, free of cost.
