SMKA Inanam was initiated on 1 January 1988 as a normal secondary school. The first batch of the school consisted of 14 teachers and 455 students led by the first Principal, Mr. Matshah Abdul Hamid. At the end of 1988, a proposal to make this school an Islamic secondary school was moved as the original Islamic secondary school in Ranau was under construction. State Education Department was in favour of such proposal as this school is located strategically near administrative centre.

Consequently, 20 teachers and a number of students of Form 5 and Upper Form 6 from SMKA Limauan joined this school on 3 January 1989, while the school, which was known as SMK Inanam, was renamed as SMKA Inanam.[1] It was renamed once again to SMKA Tun Ahmadshah on 9 September 2009 in commemoration of the then Governor of Sabah, Ahmadshah Abdullah.
