Presby Boys Senior High, Legon (PRESEC)


PRESEC was located in Odumase – Krobo  till 1st of September, 1968 when it was rehoused at its new permanent location at Legon – Mile 9, north-east of the University of Ghana.

At the new campus it continued as a boys’ boarding secondary school until the mid 1970s when the sixth form was upgraded to the National Science College. Female students were admitted into the sixth form in small numbers from September 1975. They continued to be part of the student body until June 1996 when the last batch left.


The school exists for the equipping of students for a fuller life to which Christian education based on the Presbyterian tradition opens the door. Hence it stands for excellence in academic, moral and skill development.

Its purpose is to discipline not only the mind and the body but also the spirit. However, it is only with the co-operation of parents that this can be achieved, and parents who decide to send their children to the school are asked to make sure that this co-operation is forthcoming.
