A small primary school, catering for the Clifton area, was established in 1905 and housed in the St.Alban’s Church hall. In 1912, buildings were erected on the present site and the school began to grow. It became a secondary school in 1959 and was named Clifton Park High School in 1965. It was during this period that the present uniform, badge and school song were established.
In 1978, the Primary Department amalgamated with Hudson Park Primary School and the school changed its name to Hudson Park High School. The Grade 7 class remained with the high school until 1985, at which time it was decided that the growth of the senior school required that Grade 7 should move to join the primary school. In 1991 the school opened its doors to pupils of all races.
1993 saw a new administration and classroom block, as well as new garages, and renovations were made to the entire school. Williams House was renovated to provide a music centre for the school. The extensions were opened in August 1994 by the Minister of Sport, Mr Steve Tshwete.
