History of KNUST Senior High
KNUST Senior High School was formerly known as the Technology Secondary School until 2007. It offers high school education and it is within the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana. It was established in February 1961 by the then-vice chancellor of the University Of Science and Technology Dr. R.P. Baffour.
The school being housed in prefabricated asbestos buildings thus started as the “Baby” of the University, that is, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in humble circumstances. From the onset, it was financed and staffed by the University. It was, however, hoped that the School would eventually move into permanent buildings on the University campus, and become a boarding institution.
From its foundation up to June 1967, the School retained the University Secondary Technical School. The Technical course was abandoned because of lack of staff and facilities. It has since been known and called Technology Secondary School. The school was originally set up to give secondary school education to the children of the university staff. The school later opened up admission to the general public.
KNUST Senior High Programmes and Course
The school offers these following programmes
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 also given to foreign nationals who wish to apply for admission into the school through a written entrance examination organised by the school.
Students from other senior high school or fresh senior high school starter who wishes to continue the education at the school can also contact the school's adminstration through the contact list provided in the contact section of this page.
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.
