Apam Secondary School, in the Zone B District of the Central region of Ghana, was established in 1953 at Paado's plains, a suburb of Apam (a coastal town in the area). The school had a very humble beginning under a cocoa shed and oak trees. It started under the management of Rev. deGraft-Johnson as a day school with Mr. C.S Arthur Hesse as the only teacher.

In 1960, the school relocated to its present site, Mbofra mfa Adwen, with a very grand and impressive opening ceremony performed by Lord Listowel, the last Governor of the then Gold Coast, now Ghana. The development of the school that led to the adoption of the name Great Apass was achieved under the leadership and aegis of the late Dr. Peter Augustus Owiredu otherwise known as PAO. Dr. P.A Owiredu took over as the headmaster from Rev. degraft-Johnson in 1959 to 1981

By 1964, the school had moved from a day school to a boarding school and had introduced advanced Level subjects in the Arts and Sciences in addition to the Ordinary Level courses it offered.

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.
