Students of the St. George's Grammar School

The school was established in 1834, named Hyderabad Residency School, to cater for the educational needs of the children of the British community serving the government in Hyderabad.[1] It is the oldest English medium school of the city and one of the oldest in India.[2]

In 1867 the school changed its name to The Chudderghat Protestant School, and in 1891 to St.George's Grammar School. In 1865 a separate girls' school was established, the first in Hyderabad.[3]

In 1918, the management of the school was handed to the Australian Christian Mission Seminary. After Indian independence in 1947, the school was handed to the Church of South India.[4]
