Curriculum

We operate a hybrid curriculum with a unique combination of the British and Nigerian curricula.

At each stage of this section, modern teaching methodologies, quality textbooks, instructional materials and resources are employed to make learning interesting. We encourage and assist our pupils, whatever their ability by providing opportunities for them to develop their potentials.

Towards the end of their academic programme, pupils are prepared for entrance examinations into renowned secondary schools within and outside Nigeria. Our academic programme is divided into three key stages

1. Foundation Stage : Infant / Nursery School
2. Key Stage 1 : Year 1 - 3
3. Key Stage 2 : Year 4 – 6.
