Ntare School is a residential boys' secondary school located in Mbarara, Mbarara District, western Uganda. It was founded in 1956 by a Scottish educator named William Crichton.


The school located a distance of approximately 2 kilometres from Mbarara town centre which is approximately 266 kilometres from Kampala, Uganda's capital and largest city. The school is situated on the convex slope of Ntare hill at an altitude of 1400 meters above sea level. To the East, is a relatively deep valley from which the school's premises emerge. This rises gently westwards forming an extensive low lying flat topped hill with Nkokonjeru and Kamukuzi, the seat of the capital of the Kingdom of Nkore. The South West is occupied by the school's play ground in the flat bottomed valley of Kakyeka.[1]
