Grange School Principal Welcome


Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to Grange school, which is situated in Ikeja GRA, Lagos. I hope you will find the information on the website useful and welcome you to visit the school to learn more about us. The Grange school currently offers an outstanding, holistic coeducation to students from Nursery to year eleven (IGCSE), with expansion plans to offer AS and A-Levels from September 2024. The Grange school is a premium, private day and boarding school, established in 1958 delivering the National Curriculum of England and Cambridge (CAIE) Curriculum.

Grange school students’ academic achievement is exceptional, outperforming all other schools in Lagos with external exam results comparable to the top British Independent schools in the UK and amongst the highest compared to International Schools. The Grange school provides modern facilities and a safe learning environment where children flourish and are supported by dedicated and passionate teachers. The Grange school has a rich heritage, embracing and celebrating Nigerian culture, diversity and history and our students are encouraged to be respectful and well-balanced learners.

The school motto of providing a ‘culture of continuous improvement’ permeates everything we do at Grange. We provide a dynamic learning community which nurtures and inspires every learner to be the best they can be. We want our students to become successful lifelong learners and global leaders in their chosen future careers, providing them with opportunities to develop their critical thinking, collaborative, creative, communication and wider leadership skills throughout their journey at the Grange school.

We encourage the intellectual, social, physical, emotional and spiritual development of children through rich and engaging learning experiences enabling them to think deeper, make real connections between their learning experiences and the real world, ensuring they become curious and confident young learners. Grange students are provided with multiple opportunities to apply their problem solving and leadership skills through engaging lessons, a strong pastoral programme and numerous co-curricular activities including local and international school trips.

The Grange school is committed to providing the best education and seeks continuous improvement in all areas of school life, demonstrated by its commitment to external accreditation, with the Council of British International Schools (COBIS). In 2023 Grange school became fully accredited with the COBIS, after having completed rigorous external reviews of the schools’ provision, with the final accreditation report identifying many strengths across the school, particularly the Grange students who are resilient and respectful learners.

The Grange school is committed to safeguarding, promoting the wellbeing and welfare of all children and young learners under our care. This is a commitment we have for all of our students. The expectation is that everyone working at Grange school is committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of children. All staff at Grange are fully trained in all aspects of safeguarding and we monitor and evaluate all children’s needs on a regular basis adapting and developing our provision to ensure we provide personalised learning experiences for all children, enabling them to flourish and reach their full potential.
