  • Dr. George Smith was the first principal, and later Rev. John McQueen was the first Rector of the High school in Kolkata.
  • From 1866 till 1878, when Mr Richard Carter, the First "Lay" person became Rector, the School in the intervening 12 years passed through a tumultuous phase of having about 10 to 12 Heads or Rectors. For such short durations that their names are not even mentioned in the Board of Rectors, that hangs in Prep Hall.
