Originally, the school was established to provide the children of West African Air Corporation (WAAC) personnel with education. There was no other school in the Ikeja vicinity, therefore admissions were open to all children in the vicinity regardless of race or employers and catered for children from 4 to 11 years old. Over the years however, our School has expanded to accommodate children of parents who wanted an English National Curriculum Education regardless of nationality or background. The school was officially opened by Lady Robertson, wife of the then Governor- General of Nigeria on the 15th December 1958.
Grange School is a ‘private’ day school in Ikeja, a city, local government and capital of Lagos State, Nigeria. Grange School was founded in 1958 by a group of British expatriates, to provide education of equivalent standard to that which obtains in the UK. The school’s Patron is the Deputy British High Commissioner to Nigeria.
Grange School offers a healthy environment, with rich opportunities beyond the classroom. Through involvement in sports, debating, creative and performing arts, leadership and service, our students discover their creativity, teamwork, work/life balance, and other life lessons they will take with them after graduating.
