The Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet (HPS, Begumpet) is a privately funded public school in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. It was established in 1923 as Jagirdars College by the Seventh Nizam of Hyderabad, Sir Osman Ali Khan, and served as a school exclusively for the sons of nawabs, jagirdars and other aristocrats and elites. Its chief architect was Nawab Khan Bahadur Mirza Akbar Baig. It was renamed as the Hyderabad Public School in 1951 after the Zamindari system was abolished in 1950.[1] The school has a 152-acre (0.62 km2) campus with building designs ranging from Deccan Osmanian to contemporary architecture.
