The Mfantsipim School in Cape Coast will from the next academic year cut the number of student intake, headmaster of the school, Malfred Barton-Oduro has announced.
He said the school will not take more than 600 fresh students, explaining the decision was taken in view of the current inadequate infrastructure to accommodate the student population.
The headmaster made this known at a ceremony to hand over a renovated infirmary to the school by the 2004-year group of Mfantsipim Old Boys Association (MOBA).
Mfantsipim School, established by early missionaries of the Methodist Church, is the oldest secondary school in the country and one of the best choice schools.
It begun with just 8 faithful students and now has over 1,600 student population.
Mr Barton-oduro told TV3 that the number of students would be reduced despite the government’s decision to roll out its flagship educational programme – Free Senior High School education.
