- BRIEF HISTORY OF INSTITUTION.
Tatale E.P. Agric Senior High School was founded by the Evangelical Presbyterian church, Ghana in 1998.
It was established as a result of the 1994 Northern conflict (a tribal conflict between the Dagombas and the Konkombas) which made access to secondary education by the people of the Basare traditional area very difficult if not impossible.
After a series of discussions between the chiefs and people of the Basare traditional area and the then Moderator of the Evangelical Presbyterian church Ghana, Most Rev. Ledo, a community Day school was established in Tatale.
Consequently, one hundred and fifty six (156) acres of land was released by the then paramount chief of the Basare traditional area, Ubor Npong for the establishment of the school.
The school opened for academic work on the 9th February, 1998 with an initial enrolment of 57 boys and 21 girls. Mr Frank K. Aflakpui was the first headmaster of the school.
Tatale E.P. Agric Senior High school is located about sixty four kilometres (64km) to the east of Yendi.
