History

-Corona Schools’ Trust Council opened its fourth school, in 1967 on Waziri Ibrahim Crescent, Victoria Island Lagos. Mrs. G. Griffin who was transferred from Corona School Yaba, became the first headmistress of the new school known as Corona School Victoria Island. Being at the heart of cosmopolitan Lagos harbouring various establishments, multinationals and residential houses, Corona School Victoria Island has always attracted parents from the professional and business community.

This school was run for 23 years by Mrs. Laide Sasegbon (1979-2002). She was succeeded by Mrs. Lara Segun, a former head of two Corona Schools, who went on to become the Educational Administrator of Corona Schools Trust Council and now a board member of Corona Schools Trust on her retirement. To date, Mrs. Segun is the first and only Corona staff to have made these transitions.

The baton of headship now rests with Mrs. Funmilola Olorunnisola as the 8th Head of School. Mrs. Ruth Ken-Ossai is the Deputy Head, Mrs. Chinyere Anyanwu is the Sectional Head while Mrs. Lola Onamusi is the Nursery Head.
