The story of S. Nicholas Grammar School, Cape Coast Castle, Gold Coast, by the Rev. A. J. KNIGHT , Headmaster The story of St. Nicholas Grammar
School, Cape Coast, Gold Coast, the public school for West African natives, begins in 1910. On January 10 of that year the first Bishop of Accra visited Cape Coast to found a school which might produce teachers, catechists, and priests for the English Church Mission'.
The school began with only twenty-nine pupils, collected with difficulty, and was hardly known outside its owe Mission. It grew very quickly and today stands open to all, without distinction of race or creed, and draws boys not only from the Gold Coast and Ashanti, but even beyond from Togo-land, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and the Uclgian Congo. Though not yet a quarter of a century old the school is already proud of a number of Old Boys who hold important positions on the Gold Coast.
At present the number of boys on the roll is limited to about two hundred by the capacity of the buildings. But the boys themselves in their spare time are building a new School at Adisadel, two miles out of Cape Coast.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
