History of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II College

Osei Tutu II College, formerly Tetrem Secondary School, had its humble beginnings in 1973 when through the generosity of an indigene, the school had its first structures resulting from a donation made for the creation of a private agric institution solely for the purpose of training the young unemployed in the locality in effective agricultural practices for self-employment and their personal livelihoods.

As the only post-JSS institution around the locality, the government of the time then saw it fit to absolve it into the mainstream educational system via the Ghana Education Service.

The school has had its ups and downs; however it lowest ebb came at a time when between 1996 and 2000, the school saw its total student population dwindle to as low as 67 students. However, from the year 2000 onwards, the school through the efforts of its past and present headmasters, has seen its total student population rise again to over a 1000 students. And from all indications, had it not been for the school’s over-stretched facilities, the total student population would have been much greater than this.

The year 2006 saw the adoption of the new name Osei Tutu II College, named after the reigning Asantehene, Osei Tutu Ababio.

It is hoped that with the total movement of structures, facilities and students to the new site in the foreseeable future, the sky will be the limit.

Long live Osei Tutu II College, Long live Great OSEC.
