The Grange Secondary School endeavors to provide a qualitative British education in a happy, caring and supportive environment. We believe that this can best be accomplished when children feel valued and are treated with dignity. Our curriculum, both in and out of the classroom, provides experiences for children which are academically, socially, physically and aesthetically challenging, while promoting in them a spirit of tolerance and understanding towards others. Our children are given opportunities to develop open and enquiring minds through problem solving and co-operative learning activities. At the same time we believe in the need for an academically demanding program which emphasizes traditional values of hard work and self discipline. We endeavour to value pupils for their achievement and turn failure into future success.
We believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged in their day to day learning, and where they are given considerable responsibility for their studies. We value what children achieve rather than focus on their failures. Ultimately, we believe that when children enjoy school, they will make accelerated progress towards intellectual maturity, while taking advantage of the social and cultural activities which we share with them.
We value parents, engaging them as full partners in their child's education and we do everything we can to make them feel welcome in, and committed to the school.
We also believe in the need to nurture and develop all our staff both professionally and personally, since it is they who create the climate in which our children will learn most effectively. We enrich our staff by providing opportunities for personal and professional development both in-house, within Nigeria and where possible training abroad. It also means that we keep up to date with educational developments, particularly in the United Kingdom to ensure that we uphold a British tradition.
From the Principal
Grange, a leading independent school in Nigeria is one of the very few schools, still specialising in providing a high quality boarding and day school education for boys and girls.
If you were to ask a Grange parent why they chose us for their child, they would tell you that pupils here seem particularly happy and balanced, because of the high quality of pastoral care and because we succeed in combining academic excellence with an outstanding range of opportunities beyond the classroom and "A Culture of Continuous Improvement."
Grange School has a tradition of preparing pupils for a life of leadership, service and personal fulfillment. We promote independence of thought, respect for others, creativity, and a sense of responsibility for one's own actions, and for the good of society.
Whatever their level of ability, Grange inspires boys and girls to develop their talents and reach for excellence in everything they do. The range of academic achievement at Grange is from good to excellent. Our record of admissions to universities in America and 'A level schools' and Universities in the United Kingdom is very good.
We place great importance and emphases of personal conduct of our Pupils, Parents and Staff. Teaching and educating our whole school community to be commendable in their conduct is regarded as the most important part of our curriculum.
