The Achimota Preparatory School in Accra has been locked by officials of the Ghana Education Service (GES) in the Okaikwei North District.
The development occurred on Friday April 30 following a court order received by the GES to take over the management of the school.
A statement by the GES said the court ruling was given on March 2020,
GES explained that the land and building being occupied by the Achimota Preparatory School formed part of Achimota School Land per the Achimota School Ordinance No. 7 & 1948.
The preparatory school was for some expatriates during the colonial era and was established for their children, staff of Achimota School and the University College of the Gold Coast.
“Over time, the expatriates left the management of the school in the hands of locals who, from time to time, form a management committee to run the school as a private institution. APS has been operating that model to date.
The GES explained that “sometime in the 1960s, Achimota School granted a lease to APS to allow it to operate from the premises, which expired in 1970.”
