The PAF School became a College in 1960 and an Academy, in 1973. In 1993 it was decided to revert the institution to a College, as it was in this capacity that it had played a key role in grooming students to become future leaders.
The first Principal of the School was Wing/Cmdr (RAF) E Sprawson (1953–57), who was followed by Mr. G. Stott (1958). Mr. H. Catchpole, (whose former students rose to prominent positions in the subcontinent,) was the Principal from 1958 to 1970. He was followed by Mr. A. Rehman Qureshi (1970–84) and Dr. Mehboob Alam (1984–93).
At its inception, the teaching staff of the school was predominantly British to help in setting up the institution on the lines of British public schools. When Mr. A.R. Qureshi took over as Principal, this task had been accomplished and all the staff at the school were indigenous.
