In 1919, the Hon'ble H. Weikfield, Director General of the Court of Wards (Department of Revenue) mooted a proposal to the Seventh Nizam, H.E.H. Mir Osman Ali Khan to establish a fully residential school on the lines of Eton College, London for the sons of Jagirdars for an enriching learning experience that would enable them to better administer their Jagirs and Estates.

The land for the School was donated by various Jagirdars and purchased by the School from a few others. H.E. Lady Vicar-Ul-Umra was one of them who parted with 89 acres of land from her Begumpet Estate. The Government levied a cess of 2% on the yearly Jagirdari income to construct the school buildings, develop infrastructure and run it to educate the sons of Jagirdars, the eldest free of cost.

In 1923, the Jagirdar College opened its portals to five students and six teachers under the first Principal Mr. H.W. Shawcross. The first batch appeared for Senior Cambridge 'O' levels in 1929 and by 1930, the school's strength rose to 150.

The Hyderabad Public School Society was formed under the Societies Registration Act to take over the management of the School after the abolition of the Jagirdari System in 1950. Admission was then open to all, irrespective of caste, creed or social status.

Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, Former President of India was the first Chairman of the Society and Mr. John W.R. Kempe the first Principal of the School. In keeping with changing times, 1984 saw the first admission of a girl student to Class XI and today it is a co-educational School. The Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet, is a member of The Indian Public Schools' Conference.

The Board of Governors which consists of Members of The Hyderabad Public Schools Society, the representatives of the Government of Andhra Pradesh, co-opted members comprising an old student and an eminent personality, the President of the Parents & Teachers Association and chaired by the Principal Secretary, Department of School Education, the Government of Andhra Pradesh administers and manages the School in accordance with the rules of the Society.
