As an international preparatory school, we will admit children from the international community here in Lagos as well as children from all parts of Nigeria. Currently the school’s community is comprised of pupils of almost thirty nationalities.
The school’s motto is ‘Non Sibi Sed Omnibus’ ‘not for one but for all’ and therefore we accept application for admissions from all children. An application for the registration of a pupil must be made by the parents or caregiver/guardian of the pupil. Documents necessary for registration must include birth certificate of the child, international passport ‘info page’, an immunisation card reports and transfer documents from the immediate previous school. Prospective pupils along with both their parents will be interviewed by the Headmaster and the Business Manager.
Once this has been carried out and in order to maintain an optimum level of academic functioning across the school, the prospective pupil will be expected to undertake activities and /or written tests over the course of a school day which must be successfully passed. The applicant will be observed to determine several social and personal character traits such as ability to settle, disposition, temperament and so on.
Most class sizes are either 16 or 22 pupils depending on the size of the classroom. There are waiting lists in most year groups. Admission is offered therefore to the first available child on the waiting list who has undertaken and passed the selection process as mentioned above. Priority in accessing a place will be given to pupils who have siblings currently in the school. While the school has a very active and experienced special needs department it cannot be expected to guarantee these facilities for those pupils with severe difficulties (even though they may have technically passed the admissions criteria).
