The school was established by providence in 1854 by Hem Chandra Ghosh,[6] the Zaminder of the village of Chandrapur.[7] The school relocated to Khadinan Shibtala, then Bagnan Rathtala. Finally it moved to its current site, near Bagnan Registry Office in c. 1935. The school became a Higher Secondary School, with diversified courses, in 1957. This made the school the first in the subdivision to engage in this transition.


The school has one campus comprising five buildings, each one named by a religious figure. Across the site, there are more than 50 classrooms, a staff room, offices, a library containing more than 6,000 books, of styles including novels, critical works, and autobiographies.[citation needed] and four science laboratories for biology, chemistry, and physics. These are located in the science building.[citation needed] Computers were first introduced in the school in 2001, in collaboration with NIIT and WEBEL—two institutions of computer education.[citation needed]
