WELCOME TO ABUJA PREPARATORY SCHOOL
A very warm and happy welcome to the Abuja Preparatory School learning community. We look forward to sharing an exceptional academic relationship with you, one that will be supportive and successful.
As a Headmaster, it is my aim to maintain and develop a happy and vibrant school in which everyone is safe, treated with respect and encouraged to learn. This is made possible by the dynamic energetic staff who between them bring a wealth of experiences and are united in their intention of improving children’s learning.
Abuja Prep is a Cambridge International School – this means it is an approved curricular and assessment centre for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), the region’s largest and best known global curricular body. CIE is part of the UK’s University of Cambridge, which has been a pillar of educational excellence for over 800 years. The school has had to meet the high standards insisted on by CIE to be awarded this status. Our pupils get high scores in their end of year assessments. We are affiliated with Swim England Association, French Institute, the British Council, and Society for Education & Training UK as well as offer the STEAM programme as a part of our after school programme.
We have a football squad called Super Prep. We offer an extensive range of after school clubs (please see the list of 2018-2019 clubs as appendix).
At Abuja Prep, the 'children come first'. Bringing out the best in each child is our constant aim. We believe that children should receive a broad, balanced and child centred education. This will develop an effective combination of creativity, confidence and courtesy, which will equip our young as global citizens to cope with the demands of life in the 21st century, wherever they may live in the world.
In today’s rapidly changing and challenging world we believe it to be the school’s primary task to foster in its community a life-long love of learning and a sense of responsible citizenship. Our educational programmes are designed to develop the understanding, skills and attitudes that support this. We believe that as we move through the processes of inquiry, discussion, decision making and reflection, we develop an understanding of ourselves, of other people and of our world.
Abuja Preparatory School provides a very special learning environment that develops outstanding, global citizens who are moral, respectful, and have a strong sense of identity. The future will rely on technology, especially in AI (Artificial Intelligence) and renewable energy. Our children are prepared for the challenges of the future. As such, they must be equipped with a strong foundation in the basics (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic) as well as the technical skills to compete in the 21st century. I believe that every child is unique and precious and that teachers should look at teaching and learning from all facets and angles to help each child realise his or her potential. We have high expectations of our pupils and respect their social, cultural, linguistic, religious and ethnic backgrounds.
Teachers at Abuja Prep treat all pupils consistently, with respect and consideration, and show concern for their development. Our unwavering belief is that a classroom environment should be such that every child is stimulated, feels secure and content and can know that he or she is valued for the person that he or she is. Being a father, I can empathise with the expectations of every parent. I realise what an important role teachers play in developing children’s futures.
We are very proud of the achievements of our past and present pupils. Abuja Preparatory School is unique – it offers not only an impressive academic programme, but a fascinating curriculum both in and beyond the classroom that ensures the education of the whole person.
