It was founded as a single-sex girls school in 1955, paralleling Esch's all-boys school, Lycée de Garçons Esch-sur-Alzette, and was named Lycée de Jeunes Filles à Esch-sur-Alzette. Since the school became coeducational in 1970 and renamed the following year, the gender balance has been steadily eroded, particularly in mathematics (in which the majority of students are now boys).
The youth theater group of the Lycée Hubert Clément was created in its present form in 1973. In 1991, the group was established, under the name "Namasté", as a separate theater group and community non-profit organisation. Although the group has still its official seat in the school, it is open to all young theater enthusiasts.
