When it was proposed that a new secondary school be built in Cheras in July 1987, Taman Connaught was identified as an ideal place to build the school. Under a RM 2.5 million World Bank loan, construction began on 4 December 1989. Construction was completed on 27 November 1991.
During the construction period, the first cohort of Connaughtians consisting of thirteen teachers and 197 students started the first school session on 4 December 1989. Students and teachers temporarily used the adjacent primary school SJK (C) Taman Connaught till 1990. Five classrooms were used for administration, teaching and learning purposes. Finally, the students and teachers moved to the newly built school on 3 December 1990 although there was no power supply.
The newly completed school comprised two 3-storey buildings and one 2-storey building, six science labs, three Living Skills workshops, three home science rooms, a canteen, a surau, a staff-room, a car park lot, a field and a library. There were 34 classrooms available for teaching and learning activities.
In January 1998, the surau located on the ground floor of block B was moved to the top floor of block A while the computer room was moved to the second floor. Subsequently, the computer room was upgraded to a fully equipped computer lab in 2000 with the assistance of the PTA of SMKTC.
With the support the school PTA, in January 2002, the first classroom on the first floor of block B was converted into a second computer lab. In May 2003, the Audio-Visual Room was converted into a third computer lab which was fully funded by the Ministry of E
