When the School first opened there were only 19 Primary students. Classrooms, dormitories, dining room, chapel and staff room were all accommodated in the magnificent Pallinghurst House, built in 1902 by a banking family. The Middle School was inaugurated in 1973. Following the approval by the Japanese Ministry of Education as an overseas school in 1975, the School was able to inaugurate the High School which enabled Rikkyo to educate students from 10 years to 18 years old. Thus it was that a modern co-educational boarding school for Japanese children came into being. The School has grown steadily through the years and many facilities have been added.
