Grenville School — Best Secondary School in Nigeria

Year 9 is an exam class divided into two parts. The first part terminates with the checkpoint examination while the second part introduces them to the diversity of subjects that will start them off on their individual career path in KS4 after due consultation with the Counseling department.

There are also provisions for learners who may be interested in the West African Examinations Council (WAEC)-conducted examination called West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE). This takes place in Year 12. There are four main pathways in this regard.  Students are expected to offer a minimum of eight subjects relevant to their proposed career path.

A number of our students also undertake extra studies for JAMB, SAT and TOFL examinations. These are matriculation examinations into Nigerian and Foreign universities.

As each student prepares for the future after the Grenville experience, the educational and moral foundations they have been equipped with ensures that they can transit easily to higher institutions around the world.

Some Awards of Excellence

Why Choose Grenville?

Grenville School is a world-class school of choice with many outstanding incentives that make learning fun. The list of jaw-dropping facilities and services of Grenville School is inexhaustible! We can only discuss some salient points here.

Grenville School has a well-rounded package of academic programs based on the British Curriculum (Checkpoint and IGCSE). We offer training for other academic programs like WAEC, OSSD and JAMB. We prepare students for SAT, TOEFL and DELF on request.

Our academic program has unique features. Physics, Chemistry and Biology are taught as separate subjects from year 7 to year 12 as opposed to Combined Science offered in other schools in junior classes. This rare opportunity enables students to be well-grounded in the three major science subjects at the junior level. In this way, each student makes an informed choice when selecting what subject, they would like to specialise in at the senior level.

Our students always are top scorers in Checkpoint, IGCSE, WAEC, OSSD and other international examinations in Grenville School. In year 12, our students have the option of being prepared for WAEC or OSSD (Ontario Secondary School Diploma). OSSD is an A level-equivalent course that is moderated and accepted by all Canadian universities, and many Universities in the UK and the US.

We offer regular subjects like English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Literature, Business Studies, Economics, Sociology and Additional Mathematics. Apart from this, we also offer more unique subjects like Music, PE, Design and Technology, Information and Commutation Technology (ICT), Art and Design, Data Processing, Computer Science, Yoruba, French, Arabic, Government, Civic Education, Drama and others.

We enhance teaching with technology to explain, research, present and concretise the information being taught to our students. One way we achieve this is through the use of interactive smartboards. In this way, the information being taught makes a long-lasting impression on the minds of our students. This also makes teaching and learning relatable to real-life situations.

We are regularly inspected by examination and regulatory bodies such as the British Council and the Lagos State Ministry of Education. These bodies have endorsed our superb services in the area of teaching, child safety, management, teachers’ qualification, class-to-teacher ratio, and sporting facilities.  Grenville is a centre for conducting Checkpoint, IGCSE, WAEC, OSSD, and IELTS examinations.

We are also committed to developing well-rounded students through extra-curricular activities and various creative outlets. In Grenville School students engage in various sporting activities like basketball and football. We also ensure that students are

prepared for life outside of the walls of the classroom through social clubs like the Debate and Public Speaking club. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in creative activities organised by the Music, Drama and Art departments.

Grenville has an efficient logistics unit that provides transportation services to students who opt for it. There are different routes in Lagos with specific pick-up times and drop-times. The school provides quality local and international excursions for the students to broaden their horizons.

The school has a corrective disciplinary committee unit that regularly educates the students about the need to be morally upright and also to caution the students in a loving and caring way as and when due.

Grenville School operates two general assembly periods in the mornings, one gender assembly, class assembly and Mentor-mentee assembly per week. In the general assemblies, all students come for announcements, presentations, advice, debate, information, news, moral instructions, commendation and correction of behavior.

The gender assemblies treat gender-specific issues, challenges and topics. We have a couple of topics like leadership, bullying, puberty, self-control etc. that are treated in a no-hold-barred environment to further instill good habits in our students. In the mentor-mentee assembly, each teacher is assigned to a group of students and not more than five students are assigned to a teacher mentor. During this assembly, they discuss challenges relating to social and academic life. The teacher can also make recommendations on how they can improve or deal with certain situations.

The school also has a Special Education Needs (SEN) unit that provides inclusive learning for students with special educational needs. The department has a team of professionally qualified teachers and therapists that provide support, advice, and teaching for these wonderful students

Grenville School is situated in the heart of GRA Ikeja, which is free from the usual noisy activities of Lagos city. The school is heavily secured by a team of professional private guards that are dedicated, observant and caring. In addition, our environment is covered by many close circuit cameras (CCT) which can record and save events for monitoring.

We recruit talented teachers with a passion for what they do. Our teachers, strive for excellence and also ensure that our students adopt a growth mindset. Grenville management is second to none in providing child-friendly policies, ideas, security, child safety and academic activities. Grenville School boasts of a team of seasoned educators who are academically certified with many years of experience with many having spent more than 10 years in Grenville School. They initiate regular training of local and international standards for staff.  Ours is always an assemblage of staff who are kept abreast of international standards in all our academic and non-academic activities.
