UNTOLD STORY OF ANSEC

In 1969, brave illustrious sons of Antoa namely Nana Yaw Kyere (The Antoahene), Opanin Oppong Kyekyeku, Adu Gyamfi, Kwasi oppong, Nana Antoa Mensah and Nana Kusi Appiah came together and founded the school.

The school was then maned AdontenAkontenSecondary School. The school was then finanaced solely by the founding father that saw the need to give secondary school education to the children in the antoa traditional area who could not attend boarding schools in Kumasi.

It started as a private school in make-shift classrooms at the schools’ old site with 12 student (8 boys and 4 girls). Nana Kusi Appiah was the Headmaster when the school was run by the community. The AntoaAdontenAkontenSecondary School was absorbed into the public system of education in September 1971. The school was then re-named AntoaSecondary School on the 11 October, 1971 with Mr. Ebenezer Twumasi as the acting Headmaster of the school supported by six teachers.

Mr. Ebenezer Twumasi acted as the Headmaster of the school from October, till February, 1972 when Rev. R. A  Ofosuhene took over as the substantive Headmaster. The main aim of the school is to provide a sound secondary school education to Ghanaian boys and girls in General Arts, General Science, Business and Home Economics.

From 1969 to date Ansec has a student population of over 2000. Currently, the boys in the boarding house stay in a rented house at Antoa town. The school Administration is working very hard to move the boys in boarding house into the school premises by completing the over five years boarding house project. The school is located along Antoa-Bonwire road.
