History of Methodist High School, Saltpond

The Methodist High School Saltpond was founded for the Methodist Church in November 1981 by the Rev. Ebenezer K. Baiden. He was also the first headmaster of the school. Rev. Baiden was then the Superintendent Minister of the Saltpond Methodist Church.

The school was started in the historic and famous Hammond Hall of the Saltpond Methodist Church where the Convention People’s Party (CPP) was founded. It later moved to the premises of the Methodist Middle School at Mount Pleasant at Apeakwaa and was finally moved to its current location which was an abandoned building belonging to the UTC adjacent to the Saltpond Post Office.

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.
