3. HISTORY OF THE INSTITUTION
Technology Secondary School was founded in February 1961 by the late Dr. R. P. Baffour, the then Vice-Chancellor of the University of Science and Technology. The aim of the founder of this institution was to provide Secondary/Technical Education for students who would eventually enter the University.
The School being housed in prefabricated asbestos buildings thus started as the “Baby” of the University 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 is purely day.
