Chibuwe High School opened 1979 with 15 teachers and 250 students, mostly boarders. The first headmaster was Mr Nelson Bangidza Dhliwayo who led the school till 1995 and the first SDC chair was Mr Gideon Kaiboni.

The first head-boy was Thokozani Mapindu from 1979 to 1981 followed by Needmore Maposa from 1982 to 1983.

Chibuwe High School offered both F1 (academic subjects) and F2 (practical subjects).

The enrolment quickly swelled as some students from Gideon Mhlanga Sec School were redeployed to the school to accommodate F2 streams as Gideon Mhlanga was commencing a five year secondary education programme. This programme did not survive after independence since it had colonial connotation that far outweighs the benefit there of.

The resolve in the school, determination and oneness of purpose are the magical wand that forms the driving force behind the current success of the school.
