Our History

The provisional Council of the University of Lagos made a request to the federal Ministry of Education in 1966 to start a primary school for the children of staff of the University. Additional advantages to be derived were that:

  1. The school would serve as a practice school for the College of education (a successor to the Federal Advance Teacher’s College).
  2. The school would help improve the output of the staff of the University who would have had to collect their children from various schools.
  3. As a university school, it would offer complete and qualitative education to the beneficiaries.

The staff school started operating on the 10th October, 1966 on the University Campus at Akoka. It was housed within temporary wooden building consisting of 9 classrooms, a small assembly hall and an office for the headmistress. It enrolled 156 pupils including about 30, who were children of non-members of staff of the University.
