Within 3 months there were about 50 girls. Strangely enough, most of the girls were from poor homes; the rich were still reluctant about educating their daughters. After inspection, the government was satisfied and approved a grant of Rs. 250 per month and Rs. 17,000 for infrastructure.
By 1908 the increasing number of students encouraged Papa Mian to build a school and boarding house. He had bought 14 bighas of land which he donated to the school. He built his own house much later in 1922.
The foundation stone of the school was laid on 7th Nov. 1911 by Mrs. Porter, the wife of the acting Lieutenant Governor of the United Provinces.
In 1914, Begum Sahiba of Bhopal, Ala Hazrat performed the inaugural ceremony by unlocking the silver lock of the Assembly Hall with a gold key. Classes were held in one half and the other half served as a hostel for girls.
In 1927 the school was granted the status of Intermediate College and students started taking the University examination.
Starting from humble beginnings, the school now proudly boasts of a student strength of approximately 2000 students, 70 teachers and 34 supporting staff. It imparts education in English & Urdu media to girl students from diverse backgrounds, starting from Class I to Class X
