St. James' School was established in 1864. Almost from its inception, reports show that these were years of stress and struggle. In the first twenty years of its existence the school faced intensive financial difficulties. Apart from its financial conditions the question of the school's relevance as an institute of higher education was also raised. Opinion was sought from Mr. Pedler, Director of Public Instruction, Bengal and Vice Chancellor of the Calcutta University, who stated, "I see little good in propping up an institution of this kind. The present policy of the Education Department is to insist on concentrating on the teaching of higher courses in the European Schools. Judged by this test, St. James' School fails to justify its existence."
