Established in 1996, Namugongo Campus had the ambition of educating and accommodating the growing number of students in Uganda. It was founded by Ugandan teachers alongside Nanseera Mixed Farm. The school was started from a single block structure, acting as both classrooms and an administration block for the school. Initially, the school accomodated only 25 students in total, with 5 staff members. Today, the Namugongo campus is able to accommodate hundreds of determined students, with excellent professionals guiding their way to success.
The first headteacher who set the school off to achieve greater things was Mr Senyonjo Moses in 1996, who later retired to persue personal business in 2013. The position was handed over to Mr Kikomeko from 2014 to 2016, and then to the current successor Mrs. Kasobya who joined in 2016.
