Secondary School

The entry-level class into our Secondary School is Year 7, and in the first three years, our students are introduced to more advanced studies in English, Mathematics, and Sciences. At the end of the three years, our students sit for the Checkpoint Examination. As one of the best secondary schools in Nigeria, our students have to undergo the Checkpoint Examination, because it helps us to understand their strengths and weaknesses – in preparation for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) exam.

After the Checkpoint Examination, our students spend the next two years preparing for the IGCSE exam. Therefore, by enrolling your child in our Secondary School, he or she will spend five (5) years, building on the foundation set at the elementary level. At the end of Year 11, which is the final year of our Secondary School, your child will sit for the IGCSE exam which is conducted by the University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate (UCLES).

Greensprings School — Best Secondary School in Nigeria

Unlike other secondary schools’ curricula, the British IGCSE curriculum encourages high academic standards through a practical approach to teaching and learning; this is the reason most of the best secondary schools in Nigeria and all over the world, including Greensprings School, adopt it. Assessment of students via IGCSE examination isn’t limited to the written test, as students are also expected to undergo oral, listening and practical tests, etc.

Our teachers have the experience to guide the students to not only pass the IGCSE examination but to also understand how their learnings can be applied in their daily life – and ultimately to their environment.

What We Have & How We Do It

We provide a stimulating and enjoyable learning environment for your child to develop the cognitive ability to grasp things easily.

What differentiates Greensprings School from other schools classified among the best secondary schools in Nigeria is that our students are trained to develop a high level of self-esteem and self-confidence.  We offer the right challenges within a well-supervised and caring environment to enhance learning.

A list of our sports facilities includes 3 football pitches, 4 tennis courts, 2 swimming pools, 2 basketball courts, 4 table-tennis tables and a badminton court, etc.

We nurture our secondary school students to have the following five learner attributes: 1. Confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others; 2. Responsible for themselves, responsible to and respectful of others; 3. Reflective as learners, developing their ability to learn; 4. Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges; 5. Engaged intellectually and socially, and ready to make a difference.

This gives our students the opportunity to develop social interaction skills and good work ethics in a professional working environment. The work experience placement enables them to practice what is learnt in theory and better prepare them for a career of their choice.

We have conducive boarding accommodation in a serene environment, tailored towards preparing students for adult life. The hostels have a central area equipped with Wi-Fi internet, where students can come together to study and socialize.
