The then Central Minister for Pakistan Railways Khan Sardar Bahadur Khan was the founder of the School, and Mr. M.A. Rehman was the founder Principal.A commission on National Education, which was formulated in December 1958, presented its report in August 1959 stressing the importance of establishing residential schools throughout the country.
