Howbury School Lagos

About Us

We are a family-oriented school catering for children from 3 months to 18 years. Our learning environment is safe and stimulating. Our pupils are educated in a structured, relaxed and caring environment.   

The school officially opened in January 2011, initially offering only creche services. By September 2011, the nursery section opened. Propelled by the success of the creche and nursery, the school started offering primary education in September 2013 and eventually started offering secondary school education in September 2020.

In the primary school, we offer an integrated, broad and balanced curriculum, a blend of the English curriculum and the Nigerian national curriculum. Our curriculum will be complemented by the Cambridge Primary curriculum which provide seamless progression to the Cambridge Secondary curriculum and the IGCSE exam. We are currently pursuing registration with the British council to enable us to prepare our children for the Cambridge Primary checkpoint tests. The Cambridge checkpoint test are marked by Cambridge examiners and provide external international benchmark for pupil performance. In the Secondary school we offer the Cambridge Secondary curriculum with children having the option to progress to IB or A levels programmes. 

To achieve our learning goals we provide personalized learning, development and support tailored to the needs of individual children building the foundation for future academic success.

We are strongly committed to producing critical and influential thinkers who will shape our world, it is our hope that we have amongst our pupils, the 'movers and shakers' of tomorrow. 

Our Team

The quality of our staff is the main reason that Howbury School has improved so rapidly over the past few years. Our staff are recruited through highly rigorous processes that ensure they are of a standard we expect at Howbury School.We also implement rigorous qualification and reference checks ensuring we employ only those who meet national and  international best standards. 

You will find our staff to be warm, friendly and committed when you visit our school.  Don’t be surprised to see us being very strict, or laughing out loud!  Both these elements fit firmly within our values of aiming high, accepting no excuses, but also caring and having fun!

Our multinational team is always ready to work closely with parents, listening to their views on how to expand upon children's previous experience and knowledge.
