The demand for secondary education has increased as a result of high completion rates at the Junior high School level. In response to this, several new public schools have been provided, whilst facilities in existing schools have been upgraded.
Trends in school placement from the Computer Schools Selection and Placement System (CSSPS)
indicate some disparity in the selection of schools. Students overwhelmingly choose the popular but few traditionally high-performing schools thereby leading to oversubscription of these schools.
Many schools that have significantly improved in recent years remain unknown and undersubscribed.
We believe that this anomaly is partly due to the lack of information available to students and parents.

The school was established on 9th August, 1909 by the colonial government as a pure Technical school, providing a 3-year course in Wood work and Metal work. Due to increased enrolment and the need for more technical expertise, it was transferred to its current premises in Takoradi in 1939 and later moved to Elmina castle in 1940. This was to give way to the British Royal Air force to use the school. The school is the first Secondary Technical School in the country. It started with 19 students. It is interesting to note that five ladies have passed through the school. They passed through from 1990 to 1993. They were among the first batch of the Senior Secondary Programme. The school’s motto is ‘‘Mente et Menu’’ which means ‘‘With Mind and Hand’’
The vision of the school is to be one of the academically outstanding second cycle institutions in the areas of Science and Technical Education.
The school seeks to render quality academic knowledge to students and also to give them holistic training – morally, socially, and spiritually for them to fit into the world of work and become good and useful citizens in society.
