The school started in 1982 mainly as a school for refugees and former freedom fighters. The founding headmaster is Paulos Matjaka Nare and the deputy headmaster was Mr. Sibanda. Paulos Matjaka Nare was a Parliamentary Candidate for MDC in the 2000 parliamentary elections poll, Gwanda South constituency, where he got 7,944 votes compared to Abednico Ncube of ZANU (PF) 9,913 and Mchasisi Nare (Ind) 674. After Nare’s retirement the school remained headed by Mr Sibanda. Due to political instability his term of headship was terminated by political activists.

In February 2006 the school had problems feeding its students due to a grave shortage of mealie meal.

All the students are boarders. Form four to upper six boys reside in a hostel called Sheraton whilst form one to three boys reside in old buildings usually called emabharakeni (the barracks). Girls reside in the eBhalagwe, whose name is taken from the area where the notorious Zimbabwean Fifth Brigade used to jail civilians during the gukurahundi disturbances. The students are classed according to their hostels, also called houses, and these are Inyathi, Ingwe, Isilwane and Impala.
