A brief history...

Chibuwe High School opened its doors in 1979 just before the close of Chimurenga war. The school had 15 teachers and 250 students mostly boarders. The first headmaster was Mr Nelson Bangidza Dhliwayo who led the school till 1995 where as the first SDC chair person was Mr Gideon Kaiboni.

The first head-boy was Thokozani Mapindu 1979 to 1981followed by Needmore Maposa from 1982 to 1983.

Chibuwe High School was a bilateral secondary school offering both F1 (academic subjects) and F2 (practical subjects).

The enrolment quickly swelled as some students from Gideon Mhlanga Sec School were redeployed to the school to accommodate F2 streams as Gideon Mhlanga was commencing a five year secondary education programme. This programme did not survive after independence since it had colonial connotation that far outweighs the benefit there of.

The resolve in the school, determination and oneness of purpose are the magical wend that forms the driving force behind the current success of the school.
