God has truly blessed our endeavors and rewarded our hopes. The Sierra Leone Grammar School continues to be a force to be reckoned with because of your continued support and commitment. As we continue to strive to meet the educational needs of young boys in Sierra Leone as well as to help reshape the educational landscape in our beloved country. It behooves us that in order to be truly the premier institution of learning; Regentonians in the Diaspora have to encourage each other to do their part. Then and only then will the Grammar School function fully as the founding fathers designed and intended it.
The Sierra Leone Grammar School was founded on 25th March 1845 as Church Missionary Society (C.M.S.) Grammar School - the first secondary school in Sub-Saharan Africa. The school started with 14 pupils, drawn from students of Fourah Bay College and was housed at Regent Square in a massive building which still exists.
