Opoku Ware School has been lucky in the caliber of Headmasters it has had since it started in 1952. They have been men of good will, dedication, selflessness, honesty and integrity; men whose great concern have been the physical expansion, moral and high academic standard of the school they administer as Headmasters.
Currently the number of staff is 61, including the Headmaster and two assistants. There is a School Chaplain and a full-time school nurse. The Accounts section of the Administration is handed by a Senior Bursar assisted by 5 Bursars and other Junior Accounts Clerks. The Catering Section is headed by a domestic bursar and assisted by a matron.
