ABOUT ANDREWS SHS

 

The establishment of St. Andrews SHS was the brainchild of Dr. Richard Kofi Asiedu, he started the Senior High School at a dilapilated building behind the old Ghana National Fire Service Station at Assin Foso, in the Central Region of Ghana in the year 2005.

 

With a humble beginning of just 25 students and 4 tutors, the school has now grown from grace to grace and from just one program in General Arts, the school is now persuing five additional programs namely, Business, Visual Arts, Agricultural Science, Home Economics, General Science and Technical.

 

The school is gradually robbing shoulders with Grade ‘A’ public SHS. It was therefore not a surprise that in the year 2015, the Ghana Education Service accorded the school the status as a Grade ‘A’ Private SHS. The school has grown numerically and they now have a student strength of 2652. In the year 2013 St. Andrews produced the highest number ever in the history of West African Examination Council Examinations, by registering 1814 candidates at a sitting, a record yet to be broken by any school in this country.

 

The school received accreditation from the Ghana Education Service (GES) in the year 2007 and recognition from the West African Examination Council (WAEC) in the year 2011. The headmaster of the school holds a master of philosophy Degree (Mphil-Education Management) after obtaining a Bachelor of Education from the University of Cape Coast.

 

The Board is chaired by Rev. Dr. John Apenkwa Brown who holds PhD and the other members a Dr. Regina N.N. Asiedu (PhD), Dr. Richard Asiedu (PhD), Nana Dr. Ampim Darko VI (PhD) and Thomas Affram (Mphil).
