Krishnath College School, is one of the oldest school in Bengal situated in Baharampur, Murshidabad district in India. Originally held in the same building with Krishnath College, it was moved into separate buildings in 1908.
At first the school had no separate existence. It was part and parcel of the Krishnath College. Regular Classes were started from 21 November 1853. In 1855, the School was shifted to Mr. Verdon Monasagon’s two storyed house. In the year of 1857, the School was again shifted to Banjetia House of Maharani Swarnamoyee. When the Krishnath College Building was completed, the school was shifted in the eastern block of the college building. In 1887, Maharani Swarnamoyee undertook the administrative and financial control of the college as well as the school. In 1902, the name of the school was changed to Krishnath College school. On 9 August 1909, the foundation stone was laid by Hon’ble Sir Edward Norman Baker, the Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal. The school was shifted to its present imposing building, built with the help of Maharaja Manindra Chandra Nandy. August 1911, the school was formally opened by Lord Fraser William Duke, the Officiating Governor of Bangal.
