History[edit]
The Founder[edit]
Late Chaperon Louis Régis was born on the 20 July 1912. He attended the Royal College Curepipe and won the English scholarship in 1930. He went to the UK to study medicine at University College Hospital, qualified in 1937, and came back in 1939. He was nominated Minister of Education and Cultural Affairs in February 1974.
The plot of land on which the school was built was donated by Dr. Regis Chaperon. When it opened in 1978 the school catered for pupils up to form II only. The school had many scholarships winners during its existence before 2002 when it became a school with only school certificate students. In 2005 when the new government took over, it again became a Higher School Certificate School. However, with the introduction of free secondary education in 1976 and the growth in demand for secondary education, the government upgraded the school to admit students up to form V. H.S.C classes were introduced in 1988 and in 1999 the school produced its first laureate. In 1998, an Amnesty and Health Club was founded by the students.
The high school was for mixed students
