History

In Pakistan, Cadet Colleges were introduced by late Field Marshal, Muhammad Ayub Khan and these were established at Hasanabdal, Kohat and Petaro.

In pursuance of the recommendations of the Commission on National Education of the defunct Government of West Pakistan decided to establish another Cadet College to be the third in the province.

In recognition of the military services of the people of the area, Mr. Fateh Khan Bandial, the then Deputy Commissioner, Kohat, requested late Malik Amir Muhammad Khan , H.Pk, H.Q.A., the then Governor of West Pakistan that a Cadet College should be established at Kohat. Mr Fateh Khan acquired 144 acres (0.58 km2) of land for the college. The foundation-stone was laid by late Malik Amir M. Khan, on 19 April 1964.

The first entry of cadets was accepted in April, 1965. Academic work started with 58 cadets and one boarding house called Jinnah House. Lt. Col. (Retd.) Faizullah Khattak (late) was its founding Principal.
