Temple School is situated on three sites – two in Ilupeju and one in Ikeja. Ilupeju is home to the Early Years and Primary Schools, while the secondary school and college are located in Ikeja. All three sites are within easy to access areas in mainland Lagos. Our academic structure:
Our academic calendar runs in three terms – Christmas (September to December), Easter (January to March) and Summer (April to July). Special government declared holidays within Nigeria are also observed.
Temple School runs a cyclical assessment system that informs teachers’ planning and preparation, while also providing data-based evaluation of student progress. All children in the primary and secondary sections sit for internal Cycle Tests each half term, and one internal end of term examination.
In addition to these, we enter our children for the following external examinations:
- The Baseline Assessments in the Reception Year
- Cambridge Checkpoint examinations in Year 6
- Cambridge Checkpoint examinations in Year 9
- IGCE examinations in year 11 and
- The regional West African Secondary School Certificate Examinations in Year 12.
We offer an extensive range of IGCSE, and WAEC subjects, and have recorded consistently improving results over the years.
The school’s design in all sections incorporates the latest thinking in planning and layout, building standards and information technology. The classroom resources are all brand new and therefore specifically designed to complement the curriculum.
Temple aims to provide a safe, secure, welcoming and nurturing environment where everyone is valued equally.
We are a co-educational and inclusive school, with small class sizes. Our entrance exams are designed to give us an authentic snapshot of students’ entry levels.

Temple Preparatory School opened in September 2004 with 7 children. The school is located in the serene environment of Ilupeju on the Lagos mainland. Temple Preparatory School runs the British National Curriculum alongside the Cambridge Curriculum, with local Nigerian content also playing a key role in the unique curriculum provided at Temple.
By the end of 2006, the number of children had grown and the existing structure could not accommodate them. The surge in population warranted the building of extra classroom blocks in the school compound. When the school re-opened in September 2008, the number on roll was more than 300 and extra classrooms had to be added to the building to take care of the new intakes.
By September 2009, Temple Secondary School was established. It was located at 1 Temple Drive, Off Olusoji Idowu Street, Ilupeju, Lagos. The school’s design incorporates the latest thinking in planning and layout, building standards and information technology.
By September 2015, Temple Secondary School moved to its permanent site at 4-6 Odegbami Street, Off Aba Johnston Crescent, Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja. Staff and students were thrilled to move to the new site, which has a basketball court, a volley ball court, a sports field and a 25m swimming pool, as well as two boarding blocks with two multi-purpose halls and a multi-sectional classroom/administrative block.
The classroom resources are all brand new and therefore specifically designed to complement the curriculum. Temple aims to provide a safe, secure, welcoming and nurturing environment, where everyone is valued equally.
