GGDC Thana, situated in the scenic valley of Malakand Agency. The college started to function in 1975, in a two room building meant for GGH school Thana. Later, in 1980 the college was shifted to the present building annexed with GGH School used as Boys Hostel. With the passage of time, increasing population and further needs of the students the building felt insufficient to accommodate more students and offer new subjects. The college couldn’t be upgraded to the level of Degree college, due to shortage of space and allied facilities. In 1992-93 and 1995-96, more land was acquired, which ultimately helped in the upgradation of college to the Degree level, in bachelor of Arts and later with construction of new science block in bachelor of Science.

By the grace of Allah almighty and the cooperation of local community most of the problems have been solved.

The provincial higher education has also been requested time again to sought out staff deficiency.
