We are seeking a visionary Headteacher to lead Africa's leading STEM-focused academy for girls.

About the school

The African Science Academy (ASA) is a private, not-for-profit school, founded in 2016 by UK-based charity, the African Gifted Foundation (AGF) to provide brilliant young African women with a world-class STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education. ASA was founded on the core belief that science and technology will drive Africa’s reinvention. We believe that women and girls should be at the forefront of this reinvention and will lead Africa’s STEM future. The school is the brainchild of Educational Philanthropist and Technology Entrepreneur, Tom Ilube CBE - Chair of the African Gifted Foundation and Founder of the African Science Academy.

ASS develops the potential of gifted students and provides them with the support and confidence they need to be future STEM leaders. We scout the continent for Africa’s brightest young women (generally aged 16 - 18 years old) and select 25 outstanding students to join us for an intense one-year STEM programme. In just one academic year, our students study the Cambridge International A-Levels in Maths, Further Maths and Physics. Alongside this, our students study robotics, computer programming, a range of extra-curricular activities and are instilled with the skills they need to become leaders in their fields.

As the students come from across the continent, all ASA students board at the school which is is located in the quiet community of Tema, just outside of Accra. Our students also hear from and have access to a range of high-profile speakers at our weekly guest speaker series. Through our speaker series, we aim to inspire our students to become innovative leaders who will go on to transform the continent. Speakers have included leading academics, entrepreneurs, politicians, authors and executives from around the world.
