School's Anthem

Awards Gained:

The school won the Ashanti Schools and Colleges sports festival in the year 2010. Currently, they are five times champions of the Ashanti Regional Inter-School football competition.

The school was established in 1968 by the Jamasi Presbyterian church with a student population of 80. It was initially known as Presbyterian secondary commercial school (PRESCO).

It was a private institution using the Presby Church as its classroom and later moved to Opanin Sekyere's house. Opanin Moses Sarpong, Opanin Kwabena Agyei and Madam Akua Akyere voluntarily offered their pieces of land for free.

In 1974, it was absorbed into the public school system and its name was changed to Adu Gyamfi Secondary School.

The school has been successful in both academic and sports field. In terms of academic, the products of the institution are found in higher places of work both in Ghana and Outside Ghana. Most of the students now complain of females being their Heads which we are finding it difficult to comply with them.

New pupils are admitted in September every year through a computerized system under the control of the Ghana Education Service. The system works based on the results of an entry examination known as the Basic Education Certificate Examination (B.E.C.E). This examination is held for junior high schools at various centres throughout the country. Entry Forms for the above examination are obtained from the West African Examination Council (W.A.E.C) through the headteachers of the respective junior high schools within the country. Once the computerised selection process is completed, the list of admitted students are made available by the Ghana Education Service to the school. The list is then made public through the school’s notice board.

An opportunity is given to foreign nationals wish to apply for admission into the school through a written entrance examination organised by the school.

After a student gains admission, he is given the school's official prospectus. This book helps new students about the school and all that is required of them.
