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.
