The need to establish an educational institution for the people of this historical city was felt intensively since long and it led to the establishment of this college for inter level studies in June, 1959. Before shifting to its present building in 1961, it had been functioning in the Provincial Assembly building on Shahrai-e-Quid-i-Azam for four years.
The close proximity of the college with the historic ShahiBagh provides environmentally suitable location for academic activities. The famous ShahiBagh is spread on a vast area of verdurous lawns and lovely gardens to its North West. To the South East is a network of roads which connects the college to the adjacent areas. The college building spreads over an area of almost 40 canals. The college comprises well-ventilated classrooms, well-equipped laboratories, a library, a common room for students, and a Masjid. Beautiful playgrounds and green lawns add to the beauty and grace of the building. This pleasant and congenial academic atmosphere is felt all around.
The main objective of the college is students’ intellectual and moral grooming by which to develop an overall balanced personality of the students. In line with the policy of the State, great efforts are made to introduce Islam as a momentous force in the lives of the students. To make exemplary Muslims and human beings, knowledge about Quran and Hadith are imparted to students on regular basis.
Co-curricular activities are equally paid special attention. Declamation contests, debates, discussions and sports competitions are few of the co-curricular activities in which students actively participate.
Special attention is paid to enhance the national integrity and solidarity among the students so that social, patriotic and civilized citizens pass out of this institution and lead Pakistan toward the path of success and prosperity.
The college is affiliated with Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education Peshawar and University of Peshawar at Intermediate and Degree levels respectively. Along with this, the college has also its affiliation with University of Peshawar for its BS 4 years Academic Program.
