Raman Higher Secondary School was one of the oldest schools in Bhopal. This school was established in 1963 by Bharat Heavy Electrical Education Society (now part of BHEL Shiksha Mandal Bhopal, with funding from the public sector engineering company Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) Bhopal.


The school was named after C. V. Raman, an Indian scientist who was awarded the 1930 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the scattering of light and for the discovery of the Raman effect.


Established in 1963,[1] the school has witnessed an array of changes and modifications. At first the school was run in a TRT Camps as Raman Middle School (Govindpura) - TRT(Temporary Residential Tenements) Camps were built to facilitate the labours and workers of (NBCC) (National Building construction corporation) involved in construction of the houses. The new (existing) building for the school was later built, spread over 11 acres (4.5 ha) land, and the higher secondary section shifted there. It was named Raman Middle School (later renamed to Bhabha Middle school - TRT Campus) with primary and middle school classes.

In 2002 Bhabha middle school was closed and the entire school was consolidated in one building. In 2007 N. U. K. Menon succeeded former principal A. N. Mishra on the latter's retirement and remained for one year. In the 2008-09 session the school was closed by BHEL Shiksha Mandal Bhopal, citing absence of students.
