Scholarship Entrance Examination 2017

Our future leaders deserve a well-rounded education. We provide a stimulating and enjoyable learning environment that is required to prepare students to be global citizens.

Becoming a world class student requires more than…

What every forward thinking school should have

child centered learning

Child-centered learning

Every school should emphasize child-centered learning because every child has different personality and learning style.

Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or the same way. Child- centered learning will help discover your child’s unique learning method, gifting and career path.


Inspiring teachers

A school should not only take pride in the qualification and certifications of her teachers. Teachers who inspire their students provide better value and students who love their teachers always succeed because they inspire them to be confident and self-motivated.

Great teachers give extra attention to students lagging behind, they are approachable and friendly, they believe that all students are brilliant. They are constantly receiving world-class training of the latest best practices in Education.

Thinking School 

In a thinking school, students develop their meta-cognition to the highest level and are encouraged to think outside the box and try to overcome problems themselves before asking for help.  

Greensprings School represents Thinking School Nigeria and is affiliated to Thinking School International.
