King's College Budo

Located in Nsangi sub-county, Wakiso district, King's College, Budo is located approximately 12km west of the capital city Kampala. The school was founded in 1906 by the Church Missionary Society (CMS) and was built on land donated by the Kabaka of Buganda.

The original intention of establishing the school was to train sons of Kings and Chiefs and as a result King's College, Budo started as a boys school. However and with time, girls were admitted to the school in 1934 and the school therefore became a co-educational institution. King's College, Budo is now a fully fledged A-level mixed boarding school under Namirembe Diocese - Church of Uganda.

The school is also a government aided school with the Ministry of Education providing salaries to some of the staff. The school has a population of approximately 1,619 students with about 1/3 of these being female. Academic excellence is and will continue to be the primary focus of the school and notably King's College Budo remains rated as a school with consistently high academic performance from year to year.
