Bolgatanga Senior High School is a co-educational institution located in Winkongo, a community in the Upper East Region of Ghana.

The school was established in 1970 with 75 students in Zuarungu on the same campus presently occupied by Zuarungu Senior High School in 1970 with Mr. Bayala C.J. Yibrul as its first Headmaster. The number of staff then was eleven in total: three professional teachers and eight supporting staff. It is currently within the Talensi-Nabdam District.
