This article is about the prospectus for senior high schools and technical schools in Ghana. Also, the article is specifically written for those who have gotten admission into any senior high or technical schools in Ghana.
Even though everyone can learn something from this article, I will tell people who want to go to senior high school (SHS) to read it. Moreover, if you are planning to go teacher training college, check their prospectus here.
Without a doubt, senior high, technical, and vocational schools in Ghana are an important part of getting people ready for higher education. These schools are collectively referred to as “second-cycle institutions.” So we have published the list of the top 50 senior high schools in Ghana in 2023.
For this reason, one must go to a second-cycle institution before getting admission to a tertiary institution such as a university, technical university, nursing school, or teacher training college for further studies.
But students must get a prospectus for their senior high school education because it is the law and school policy.
In view of this, we have listed below a list of prospectuses for senior high schools in Ghana. It is also important to note that some West African senior high schools also use the same prospectus listed below. But the question people normally ask is, “What is a prospectus?”
What is a prospectus?
A prospectus is a document or single page that outlines a school’s or company’s operations. In educational settings, the purpose of a prospectus is to give prospective students more information about the school before they apply.
In the case of a senior high school (SHS), the prospectus has a list of things that students need to buy as part of the admissions process.
- Every student is strictly expected to go along with National Health Insurance Card
- Students who do not go with the required items will be sent home.
- All new students must be medically fit. They will be expected to participate in all P.E. exercises and School work.
Here is a list of items you need to have as a student before you start your academic journey at your chosen senior high school or technical school.
Prospectus for Senior High Schools
Here is a list of items you need to have as a student before you start your academic journey at your chosen senior high school or technical school. We have carefully grouped the list of senior high school prospectuses into day and boarding students.
Also, consider enrolling your ward in Spiritan Senior High Technical School. The school is fast rising academically since absorbing into the public education system.
For residential students (boarders), we have also classified them into male and female categories. This is because the item required from the males is slightly different from that of the females. Also, unlike the personal items that will be consumed by the students, there are items that are for the school. These items are also listed below.
