This work traces the history and evolution of one of East Africa's most prestigious schools through the first 100 years of its existence. Written from an insider perspective, it traces the development of the school from its missionary roots, through its place in the Kingdom of Buganda, to the widening of the admissions policy to accept pupils from all areas of Uganda and beyond, and finally, the shift to co-education. The book celebrates the successes of the Budo project and the extraordinary range of high-level men and women it has produced, and analyses the administrative and political problems the schools has had to grapple with over the years. The book is described by Professor A.B.K. Kasozi, a linguist and educationalist of considerable renown in the region, as 'a micro-description at an institutional level of the growth of formal education in Uganda'
