Lubwa Mission School is one of the historic Church institutions which was established in 1905 by the (United free) Church of Scotland through the Livingstone Mission of Malawi .

Provision of Educational Services was one of the models of avangelism by the (United Free) Church of Scotland.

The Livingstonia Mission stressed on education of Africans in academic and practical skills, the development which saw a number of young Africans incorporated into the structure of the Mission as teachers, evangelists, catechists, or paid employees of the Mission.

Livinstonia Mission sent Julizya Kaunda and his wife Helen Jengwera Nyirenda from Nyasaland to Chinsali to open a school and start mission work at Lubwa .

Over the years , UCZ Lubwa Mission School operated as primary School until 2017 , when the Government of the Republic of Zambia granted the institution a Secondary School status, seperatingit from the primary section .

Although the Primary School has been operating as a grant aided School , the Secondary School Section is still in the process of obtaining a grant aided status.

Since 2017 , a school laboratory has been one of the key facilities UCZ Lubwa Secondary School has been lacking.
