Mr. Simon Peter Attah-Cat0 (Executive Director)


On behalf of the AngloGold Ashanti Schools Community, I welcome you to our website, and it’s my hope that by the time you are done navigating through our various pages, you will not only be satisfied with what you will read and see, but you will equally develop a unique affinity to our brand and services and recommend us to friends, family and others in your network who are craving for quality education.

In 1961, when General Sir Edward Spears, the then General Manager of Ashanti Goldfields Corporation, and his team of mine managers decided to establish a school to cater for the educational needs of their wards, little did they know that that school that started with five students and two teachers; Kerry Williams and P.T Brew, was going to live through many generations and grow to become one of Ghana’s greatest pre-tertiary educational institutions. Today, that little school that started at the Ball Room at the Obuasi Sports Club(OSC), North Mine, has grown to become an enviable multiple award-winning school which provides employment for over 270 people and has more than 3,300 students enrolled from pre-school to the secondary (junior secondary school).

The AGA School’s Vision is to be Ghana’s frontrunner in the provision of quality and holistic foundational learning. Just as the name sounds, foundational learning is exactly what it sounds like! It is about the foundations of a child’s education. It refers to basic literacy, numeracy, and transferable skills, that are the building blocks for a life of learning. Just as we would not build a house without solid foundations, we cannot expect a child to thrive in this continuously-evolving world without solid foundational skills.  (Credit: https://blogs.worldbank.org/education)

At the AngloGold Ashanti (AGA) School, our Mission is to cultivate a dynamic learning environment that empowers students to excel academically, develop 21st-century skills, embody exemplary manners, enhance employability, and foster global awareness, whilst at the same time, we remain dedicated to nurturing well-rounded individuals who are not only adept in their academic pursuits but are also equipped with the essential skills and values needed to thrive in an ever-evolving world.

The AGA School Team is Committed to:

Academic Excellence: We strive to provide a rigorous and innovative academic curriculum that challenges students to think critically, solve problems creatively, and adapt to new challenges seamlessly. Through a blend of traditional and modern teaching methodologies, we aim to instill a love for learning that lasts a lifetime.

21st Century Skills: Recognizing the rapidly changing landscape of the 21st century, we are committed to developing in our students the skills necessary for success in the modern world. This includes critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and digital literacy. Our goal is to prepare students to navigate a globalized and technology-driven society with confidence.

Exemplary Manners: We believe that manners and ethical behaviour are the foundation of strong character. Our students are encouraged to embrace respect, integrity, empathy, and responsibility. We deliberately remind them to be abreast to the use of courteous expressions such as “please”, “thank you”, “I am sorry” and “may I help you?”. By fostering a culture of kindness and understanding, we aim to develop individuals who contribute positively to their communities.

Employability: Beyond academic knowledge, we are dedicated to equipping our students with practical skills that enhance their employability. Our curricula, be it that of WB School or the AGA School, include real-world experiences and opportunities for students to apply theoretical knowledge in practical settings, ensuring they are prepared for the challenges of the professional world, and ready to make a difference as future leaders.

Global Awareness: In an interconnected world, global awareness is crucial. Our students are exposed to diverse perspectives, cultures, and global issues. Through IT lessons, Movie Nights and other carefully-tailored and well crafted academic and co-curricula activities, we aim to broaden our students’ understanding of the world and prepare them to be responsible global citizens.

As Executive Director, I joined the AngloGold Ashanti (AGA) School in February, 2018, and it’s been another refreshing life learning experience. I am privileged to have a team which is comprised of very dedicated professionals- teachers, headmasters, accountants, administrative support staff, and also, by God’s grace, some seasoned and loyal multiracial families who have tried, tested and trusted our brand. To all the thousands of our dedicated and loyal Parents and their families, we are because of you, and we appreciate your unalloyed partnership!

The AngloGold Ashanti Schools operate in two campuses, AGA School Koffekrom Campus (main school) and Williams and Brew School, located at OSC-North Mine. The main school runs Ghana’s National Standards Based Curriculum(NSBC) from Pre-School to Grade 6, and the Common Core Programme(CCP) at the Junior High School. The school’s second campus, Williams and Brew School, is accredited by the University of Cambridge and the British Council to run the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) programmes for Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Secondary and the Cambridge Advance (A’ Level). WB School’s Cambridge Accreditation Number is GH072.

To ensure that our students and their families receive up to the required standards and levels of education required of first class international schools, the schools management lays the right foundations by making sure that all our teachers either have a minimum of a first degree in education or a first degree in an identified discipline in addition to a qualification in education. That aside, we prioritise staff orientation and continuous professional development programmes on a regular basis to ensure that our staff are always aligned and abreast with current practices and requirements. We recognize and cherish the individual and collective contributions of our faculty and administrative staff, and with their support, we shall remain focused on delivering quality and yearn to achieve greater standards on a continuous basis.

As a school, we are guided by Abraham Lincoln’ dictum that, “a nation that does not honour its heroes will not long endure”, and so, we owe a mammoth gratitude to the past leaders and teachers of the AngloGold Ashanti School. To every individual who has served the AGC Primary or the AGA School in a capacity, dead or alive, we honour and appreciate your immeasurable contributions, and dedicate the school’s successes and laurels to your memory and legacy.

The AngloGold Ashanti School is blessed with a team of well refined and experienced personalities who serve as Board of Directors of the School; Prof. Franklyn Achamfour Manu (Board Chairman), Mr. Anis Haffar (Board Member), Dr. Eric Asubonteng (former Managing Director, now Senior Vice President at AngloGold Ashanti, Africa: Board Member) and Mr. Emmanuel Baidoo (Senior Manager, Sustainability and Community Relations at AGA, Africa: Board Member). Indeed, it is a huge privilege to have these very accomplished industry players serve on the AGA School’s Board, and for me, it is a blessing to directly receive the benefits from the knowledge they share: one seldom encounters that invaluable guidance and knowledge-set on the corridors of university lecture halls. The Executive Management Team (EMT), which I lead, has consistently deployed the advice and guidance received from the Board to the larger benefit of our key Stakeholders, most especially, our students. We will eternally remain grateful to the Board, and we treasure the diversified, tangible, prudent and reliable investments they have made over the years in guiding us in achieving many successes, including growing the school’s enrollment to over 250% in five (5) years, and winning three (3) covetable Presidential Awards during the same period. Surely, “an investment in education pays the best interests” (Benjamin Franklin).

It’s always exciting to note that the AngloGold Ashanti School’s BECE results has consistently been the best in the Ashanti Region, and among Ghana’s top ten results since 2018. But we do not only take pride in excellent results. As already mentioned, we produce the best crop of well behaved, God-fearing and disciplined students who are imbued with the 21st Century Skills of critical thinking, good communication skills, creativity, perseverance, problem solving, collaboration, information and digital literacy, innovation, and, students who are globally-aware, and ready to make a difference wherever they find themselves after completing the AngloGold Ashanti Schools. It is not surprising that among the over 10,000 alumni of the school, majority of them are engaged in very reputable entities; parliament of Ghana, the mining industry, educational sector, health sector, financial sector, information and communication technology, aviation, oil and gas, etc. And yet, many more are self-made entrepreneurs, and we are proud of their contributions to the Ghanaian and global economy.

Our school is among the fewest educational institutions that prioritize and actually undertake corporate social responsibilities (CSRs) to the benefit of the needy and poor in society. Through our CSR commitment, we have over the years donated books, furniture, clothing, sanitary items, computers, and in some instances, cash, to orphanages, less-endowed basic schools in the Obuasi Municipality and to the Obuasi West Municipal Assembly and Obuasi West Education Directorate. In furtherance of this commitment, the AGA School has provided full scholarships for brilliant-but-needy students in communities most impacted by the activities of AngloGold Ashanti Obuasi Mine; Anyinam, Sanso and Koffekrom, and so far, the school has spent thousands of dollars on scholarships to enroll about 40 students from these communities.

It is our utmost expectation that our school, the Great AngloGold Ashanti School, becomes suis generis; a school of its own, not one of academic utopia, but one which offers a diversity of stupendous academic influence and skills, and one which will over a long period continue to produce successful people.

Finally, we are minded that in order to and to make our Vision and Mission a reality, Management should, and will consistently utilize discipline and the enforcement of the school’s rules and regulations as the connecting thread weaving through the complex tapestry of the school’s fabric!

Thank you.
