It is the desire of all parents to choose the right school for their girls; where they are given a wholesome education, with a pastoral touch, that combines education with morals. I share your passion and I am very pleased to recommend to you, Methodist Girls’ High School, a school with a proven track record of success, which offers quality education, and provides maximum opportunity for girls to develop academically, socially, and most importantly, spiritually, in an environment that is stimulating, caring and supportive.[/stm_testimonials][stm_spacing sm_spacing=”80px” md_spacing=”80px” lg_spacing=”100px”]

Brief History of MGHS

In 1878, the same year that the Wesleyan Boys’ High School, now known as Methodist Boys’ High School, was established, by the African Members of the Wesleyan Methodist Mission, the Mission also tried to establish a girls’ school, in order to make secondary education accessible, not only to boys, but to their female counterparts as well. However, this attempt failed because Miss Smith, the Missionary who came from England to establish the girls’ school, became indisposed and was compelled to return home. Despite this setback, the founding fathers of the school were not deterred, as another attempt was made, in 1879, and this saw the establishment of the school in January 1879, with Rev E.W. Williams, a Nigerian, as her first Principal.


1. Our eyes have seen the vision

Our hands in differing ways

Shall build at peace together

A school for future day


Sing out, Sing out

Long may she stand a

Place of honour in the land


2. Our hearts shall give her courage

Our lips shall speak her fair

We’ll laugh at her and love her

Defend her everywhere


Sing out, Sing out

Long may she stand a

Place of honour in the land

3. Our minds shall speak her beauty

Our spirit self-control

Together we will build her

A strong and living soul


Sing out, Sing out

Long may she stand a

Place of honour in the land


I pledge to make Methodist Girls’ High School

Cleaner and better than I met it

So, help me God.
