  1. VISION

The School’s main vision is to offer Prempeh College students a unique experience in education in order to achieve academic excellence, and to train youngmen to occupy positions of responsibility.

  1. MISSION

To provide committed service and the relevant inputs that will enhance teaching and learning, ensure compliance of school rules and regulations by students and mould the character of students in achieving the vision of the school.

  1. THE SCHOOL’S CREST

The School’s Crest is composed of four main elements: a green and yellow shield; an indigenous Akan male stool in yellow colour in a green background, a green cross and the School’s motto “Suban Ne NimdeƐ” at the bottom of the shield.

The Shield

The shield is used to symbolize defense and security.  These are attributes of the Ashantis, that has kept the Kingdom intact over the last three centuries

The indigenous Akan male stool is a symbol of unity and represents the immense contribution of the traditional authorities towards the establishment and growth of the school.  In fact Otumfoᴐ Sir Osei Agyeman Prempeh II played a pivotal role in the founding of the College.  Not only did he donate the land on which the College is sited, but he was also one of the brains behind its establishment in 1949.

The Cross

The cross is a symbol of the Christian faith and represents the role of the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches in the moral and character training of students.   The College has indeed has a feel of Presbyterian and Methodist Training, and has exemplified the role of the two churches in educational development

  1. BRIEF HISTORY

The School’s official name is Prempeh College.  Both current and past students are known as Amanfoﬤ, depicting the sense of nationalism imbued in the pioneering students in the original motto of the College: “Oman pa fapem me obrapa” which translates as Good citizens make a good nation.  There is a strong determination through hard work, integrity and good morals and also a strong desire by Amanfoﬤ to serve the nation in particular, and the world at large in any capacity they find themselves.

The original motto was amended to “Suban Ne NimdeƐ” – Character and Knowledge in 1964.

Prempeh College as an educational institution is a product of a fruitful collaboration between the Kumasi Traditional Council, the Presbyterian and Methodist churches in the then Gold Coast and the Colonial Central Government.

The Colonial Government sought to correct this imbalance in the early 1940’s by inviting the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches, which had proven experience in running institutions of learning to start a Secondary School for boys.

After some delays caused by the Second World War, the final decision to open a school for boys in Kumasi was taken in 1948.   Prempeh College, therefore, was founded to fill a void that had existed in Secondary Education for residents of Ashanti and the Northern Sector of the Country

 

Temporary accommodation was found for the Students in the premises of the 52nd Military Hospital.   The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei-Agyeman Prempeh II, who had taken personal interest in the formation of the school donated the land which forms the present site of the school.

The name Prempeh College was suggested by Major C.O. Butler, the then Chief Commissioner for Ashanti.  The Ashanti colours of green and gold was adopted by the school.   The first Headmaster, Rev. S. N. Pearson presented the school crest which incorporated the school colours and depicting the Ashanti stool as well as a cross, representing the role of the church.

The School was opened on 3rd February, 1949 with the arrival of 50 students and its formal opening ceremony was attended by many dignitaries, including The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei-Agyemang Prempeh II, Major C. O. Butler, Church Leaders, Chiefs and members of the Kumasi Traditional Council.

The Asantehene maintained a keen interest in the school and was a frequent attendant at the School’s Speech and Prize-Giving Days.

Special mention is made of Dr. T. A. Osae, first African headmaster who brought the work of his predecessors to fruition and built on it.  Under him Prempeh was placed on a high pedestal, beating key schools academically for ten consecutive years.
