How can I change the privacy setting of a Facebook group (500+ members) from secret to closed?

I can't see any option to do so in Edit Group Settings.

You no longer can, as per facebook rules after a group gets above a certain size (250 users), you can only increase its privacy level

Groups with 250 people or more

When a group hits 250 people, you can only change an Open group to Closed or Secret, and a Closed group to Secret. You won't be able to change the privacy again after this.
