Expansion

In 1954, All Saints celebrated the completion of 100 years of service to the society. On this occasion, Rev. Bro. John of God, the Rector of the school, deemed it fitting to start a new school. A building was hired at King Koti Road, Hyderabad to accommodate the new school which was christened St. Paul's High School, after Bro. John of God's favourite saint. Some of the best students of All Saints' along with a few teachers from nursery to seventh class were sent to the school, under the stewardship of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. At its inception it was an all-boys middle school, working as a branch of All Saints' High School. In 1955, it was shifted to the present premises at Hyderguda, Hyderabad. In 1958, St. Paul's High School was made autonomous and Rev. Bro. Stanislaus was appointed the Principal. By then the school had one section each from nursery to class 7, with 300 students.

Admissions

Though the school is a Catholic Minority Institution, its admission is open to all students irrespective of caste, creed, religion or gender. For admission into Kindergarten, the school follows a joint admission policy together with Little Flower High School, Hyderabad and St.Paul's High School, Hyderabad, both of which also run by the Montfort Brothers of St. Gabriel.

Every year in January, one of the three schools (in rotation every year) conducts the admissions procedure for Kindergarten. It involves an interview of both the student and the parents. The number of students who apply for admission far exceeds the number of positions available and hence it is a very competitive process. Students are allowed to state their choice among the three schools but their choice is not guaranteed. A twenty-percent quota is generally reserved for economically backward students.

Admission to all other classes is done on a case to case basis by the school itself as per the availability on merit basis. Students who not only have a strong academic standing but also display talent in sports, literary or cultural activities are given priority in admission.All Saints High School is one of the oldest and prestegious institutions in hyderabad.And this is one of the best schools in hyderabad and secunderabad.
