Twene Amanfo Senior High/Technical School is the institution that we have in mind.
A school that will be the gold standard for academic achievement by any and all measures.
Our mission is to educate the industry so that each individual in all of its myriad forms and the industry as a whole can reach the highest possible level of excellence they are capable of achieving via training.
Where are we presently On the 11th of January 1930, Sir John Maxwell, who was serving as the Colonial Administrator for Ashanti West at the time, gave the Twene Amanfo Senior High/Technical School its commissioning as the Sunyani Government School for Primary and Middle levels.
In order to accommodate the growing number of students attending the institution, it was renamed the Sunyani High Street Primary and Middle Schools in the year 1960. As a result of the Education Reform Programme that was implemented in 1971, the school was repurposed initially as a continuation school and then, in subsequent years, as the first Experimental Junior Secondary School in the Brong Ahafo district.
On September 1st, 1981, the previous name of Sunyani High Street Experimental Junior Secondary School was changed to Sunyani Day Secondary School in order to reflect its new status as a Senior Secondary School. In response to a petition that was submitted by the Parent-Teacher Association to both the Director-General of Education and the Commissioner of Education. Mr. David A. Amankwaa served as the institution’s first headmaster.
Twene Amanfo Secondary School was renamed after the second chief of the Sunyani Traditional Area in 1986 during a lively durbar that was hosted by the Sunyani Traditional Council and the Ghana Education Service. The durbar was led by the paramount Chief Nana Bosoma Nkrawiri, who was in charge of the Sunyani Traditional Council. After Mr. David A. Amankwaa stepped down from his position as headmaster in 1991, Mr. S. C. Gyamfih took over in that role.
In September of 1996, Mr. J. R. Agyemang Badu was appointed to the position of headmaster of the school. During his tenure as headmaster, the institution saw significant advancements in the areas of academic work, athletics, enrollment, and the construction of infrastructure. Since Miss Georgina Boakye assumed control of the administration of the school in 2003, the institution has undergone significant growth in terms of the number of students enrolled, the number of teaching and non-teaching staff, the size of the infrastructure, and the number of teaching learning facilities.
