Breman Asikuma Senior High School (BASS) started in October, 1964 at the old Methodist Primary School premises, now Col. Baidoo primary and J.H.S compound. This idea was initiated by Mr. Robert Essuman, who was the chief farmer at that time. Other individuals who helped with the development of Beautiful BASS were Messers Isaac K. Botchwey and T. B. Okwan.

The establishment was a joint venture between the Methodist Church Ghana, Breman Asikuma Society and the Breman Traditional Council led by Very Rev. Felix Mensah Akyea, the then Superintendent Minister and Nana Amoakwa Buadu VI, the then Omanhene respectively.

The first Headmaster was Mr. Ernest K. A. Odoom and was started with six (6) teachers who include Messers E. B. Addai, Mr. Henry Aikins, Mr. Baffour, Mr. Allotey and Mr. T. B. Okwan, supported by a non-teaching staff of two. Student enrollment at the end of the first term was 60.

The school moved to its present site on 5th May, 1973 after Opanyin Kofi Tawiah, the then Ebuaupanyin of Turom Nsona royal family of Asikuma had released a land to the state for the permanent site for the school.

New pupils are admitted in September every year through a computerized system under the control of the Ghana Education Service. The system works based on the results of an entry examination known as the Basic Education Certificate Examination (B.E.C.E). This examination is held for junior high schools at various centres throughout the country. Entry Forms for the above examination are obtained from the West African Examination Council (W.A.E.C) through the headteachers of the respective junior high schools within the country. Once the computerised selection process is completed, the list of admitted students are made available by the Ghana Education Service to the school. The list is then made public through the school’s notice board.

An opportunity is given to foreign nationals wish to apply for admission into the school through a written entrance examination organised by the school.

After a student gains admission, he is given the school's official prospectus. This book helps new students about the school and all that is required of them.
