The genesis of the school dates back to the 1960’s when some concerned Old Methodist School Boys and Girls at the Wesley Methodist Church, now Wesley Cathedral at Adum, felt the need to establish a Secondary School to help parents who could not afford the cost of Boarding Secondary Education for their children.
The idea did not receive much support those days but it did not die out entirely. As it were, in 1979, Rev. De Graft Johnson, who was then the Superintendent Minister in charge of the Wesley Methodist Church, had the vision and he took a bold decision to set up the school with eleven students.
The school was opened officially on November 11, 1979 at Freeman Methodist Chapel at Moromu. The school was moved to the Mmofraturo Girls’ Boarding School where it was accommodated in two classrooms and an office. The enrolment increased to 32 students. In 1985, it was moved to its present site, opposite the shell filling station and the Tafo Cemetery on the Mampong Road. It is less than fine minutes drive from Kejetia.
The school was first named Methodist Day Secondary School because it was to be owned and supported by ALL THE METHODIST CHURCHES in Ashanti Region in the name of the entire Methodist Church of Ghana.
At the Effiduasi Synod of the church in 1985, it was found out that the Methodist Churches outside Kumasi were not much interested in the school because it was a Day School which could not admit their wards who wanted to be in the boarding schools.
The ownership of the school was therefore given to the Wesley Methodist Church at Adum. Thus, it became Wesley Day Secondary School with an increase in student’s enrolment to thirty two.
The Kumasi Diocesan Synod of 1999 decided to annex Wesley Day into Mmofraturo School, with the view to developing it into a composite whole offering first class education akin to that of Wesley Girls’ at Cape Coast, but this time, to serve the church in the Northern Sector of the country.
In 2001, in furtherance of the church’s objective, the school became known and called Mmofraturo Girls’ Secondary School. The school finally became Kumasi Wesley Girls’ High School upon the then Director General of Education’s approval for the change in 2006.
The uniform of the school has been designed to reflect the Christian values of the school and enable students rise above the symbolic darkness, shine and show all others the right way to full life.
