On 2 May 2002 the vision of 18 founding member families to provide children like theirs with a first class primary school education in the English tradition was realized. The founders set high educational standards but also wanted the school to be a “happy school” where service to others and a sense of responsibility and personal integrity would always be borne in mind.

Operated through a “not for profit” foundation, the school has remained true to those aims ever since, and an unprecedented community spirit has driven this vision until the stage where “ Lagos Prep School” has become without question the leading establishment in its class. The vision is strengthened daily by the fresh commitment of like-minded people.
