HistoryEdit

The founder of the school is Babu Ray Bahadur Harendra Kumar Ray Chowdhury, who was the zamindar of the area. He founded the school in the name of his father.[2] He founded the school to fulfill his son Upel Chandra's wish.

Upel Chandra was a barrister who studied in London. After completing his degree, he wanted to establish a school to spread education in the area. He requested his father to make a school but his father did not agree with this proposal. Due to the rejection by his father of the proposal, Upel Chandra committed suicide. Only then did Babu Ray Bahadur Harendra Kumar Ray Chowdhuri established the school and dedicate it to his son.

The school started its journey as an English medium school. The first head master was an Englishman. It was recognized by the University of Calcutta in 1921.
