Nabisunsa Girls’ Secondary School is a Muslim founded girl’s school in Kampala District headed by a Muslim headmistress. It holds classes from senior one through to senior six. The school is one of the oldest girls’ school and topmost performing in “Ordinary” and “Advanced” levels in Uganda. The student population of this middle class girls’ school is 1150 with a teaching staff of 70 (34 female, 36 male).


It started as a Girls’ Boarding School. In 1958 it became a Junior Secondary School. At its enrollment the Headmistress Miss E.N. Dimblebee said that 56 girls’ had been enrolled. Ten of the pupils were not Muslims since it had not been possible to find sufficient Muslim girls at that time. Later in 1964, it turned into a Senior Secondary School and attained ‘A’ level status in 1980.

In the hearts of its founders, it was meant to be the best Girls’ School in the country and since its inception until about 1969, it was headed by British Expatriate Headmistresses. Being a Muslim founded school it was emphasized that girls should take pride in their religion and be examples of Good Educated Muslim Women, with the value of the fear of Allah. That everything possible had to be done to achieve that status.


There had been great fear that the few Muslim girls who had joined the church schools had and were converting to other religion. That said right from when the school opened it registered many girls from other religious denominations. Over the years Nabisunsa has lived up to the dreams of the founders. Many prominent figures in this country have been nurtured by this great institution.

Prince Badru named the school after his grandmother Omuzaana Nabisunsa, the mother of the Late Prince Noah Mbogo, a devoted Muslim.

Vision: A versatile Girl child who is composed, dignified, morally upright and globally competitive.
Mission: Nabisunsa will excel in providing a holistic quality Education to girl child.
