About the School


 

 

Small Beginnings

mposecMpohor Senior High School was established and absorbed by the Ghana Education Service (GES) in October 1990 through the initiatives of the district assembly, district and regional directorates of education and the chiefs and people of Mpohor traditional area who unanimously and collectively realized the dynamics of secondary school education on the socioeconomic development of the individual and the society at large.

 The school was opened on January 28, 1991 without a single student. The first student to register, Master Joseph Kwakye was given admission on January 31, 1991. By the end of the term however, thirty eight (38) students who are considered pioneers of the school had been registered. Among them, Peter Nkrumah was appointed the first school prefect.

 Mr. Isaac Ntarmah-Wilson was appointed in an acting capacity as the first headmaster of the school in October 1990 prior to the official opening of the school. Mr. Ntarmah-Wilson administered the school till November 2000 when Mr. Kwaku Obiri Affum took over. Mr Affum also administered the school till September 2006. Mr. Kwasi Agyemang Antwi, the third headmaster, took over the administration of the school on September 13, 2006 and remained in post till April 19, 2011 when he handed over the administration of the school to Nana Fosu Eyiah. In January 2016, Nana Fosu Eyiah also handed over successfully to Mrs. Alberta Crofie Quayson

Mission of the school

 The school’s mission is to provide access to affordable quality education to marginalized and deprived rural pupils who would have otherwise been deprived of secondary school education due to high level of poverty.

 

Vision of school

The school’s vision is to develop into one of excellence and choice for moral, spiritual and mental education, where the identification of potentialities and capabilities through professional guidance and dynamic orientation programmes are pursued for positive goals and outcomes.

School crest 

crestThe school crest is in two parts. The upper part contains an open book. This symbolizes knowledge acquisition. The lower part has a machete and a hoe. These are traditional farming implements; they symbolize skills acquisition. Underneath the crest is a banner with the inscription; “Knowledge and Self Reliance” which is the school’s motto.

 The founding fathers of the school had at the back of their minds that one cannot acquire knowledge without exercising the mental faculties; and that there cannot be self reliance if we live in ignorance.

 The school has grown in leaps and bounds with a current student population of about 1000 and a staff strength of about 40. The school’s facilities have also grown. The new administration block is still under construction. The one story classroom block is also still under construction. As the school now becomes a boarding school, the PTA has constructed a new boys’ dormitory for the school. The PTA has also provided the school with a kitchen. The district assembly has provided water tanks for both the boys’ dormitory and the girls’ dormitory. The Wassa Mines Company has also constructed an ultramodern boys’ dormitory for the school. The company will be handing over the dormitory to the school very soon. The school also now has a well fitted science laboratory.

 The school’s academic performance has not been left out in the growth of the school. Our academic performance has improved tremendously. The school is currently ranked 28 among 49 recognized senior high schools in the western region according to WAEC’s 2013 WASSCE league table. There is still more room for improvement. It is our fervent hope that the school will be ranked among the first 5 schools in the region very soon. The school’s academic programmes include General Arts, Visual Arts, Business and Home Economics.

mposec The school is also not lagging behind in its co-curricular activities. There has been marked improvement in sports at local, zonal and regional levels. The school’s cadet corps is also very active. The religious clubs and various social clubs are all active. Various subject and course clubs are also actively working for the proper growth and development of the students.
