We are Nigeria's first Thinking School

How your child will benefit.

  • Your child will experience global teaching methods based on international best practice
  • Your child will be trained to become an innovative, world-class student
  • Your child will develop core analytical skills required to solve global problems
  • Your child will develop thinking skills required to gain admission and scholarship into word-class universities
  • Your child will stand a chance to gain recognition within the global community
  • Your child will develop growth mindset as adopted by innovative companies such as Apple, Amazon, Oracle, Facebook etc.

A Thinking School supports students to think "outside the box." Students will be able to deconstruct their own learning process and even find out what works best for them. The Thinking School approach is not just a subject but an approach to be used by every teacher in every subject. Thinking will help students tackle difficult questions more creatively.

This very exciting initiative forms part of the Greensprings goal of redefining education in Africa.

Greensprings  School ultimately aims to support our alumni so that they can develop solutions that will not only help their own families and communities but can also help Nigeria and Africa to move forward. 

Helen Brocklesby

Former Director of Education
Greensprings School


Top in the world for Mathematics (without course work) IGCSE.

“I love mathematics. Finding out about my award did not just make me joyful, but also increased my love and passion for Mathematics! I found the Cambridge IGCSE curriculum very interesting because it is skills-based and makes you think critically. It was really helpful in exposing and preparing me to do well in international schools and universities in future. Also, I enjoyed the privileged of highly competent and committed teachers at Greensprings School.”

Our Aim

Here at Greensprings, our aim is to lay the foundation of a life-long educational experience, which will give the individual confidence and respect that will overcome all distinctions of race, class, colour and creed.

We also wish to develop in our students a consciousness of the needs of society and the desire to contribute positively through selfless service, putting the totality of God-given talents and acquired knowledge to the service of humanity.

Our boarding enables secondary students take risks in a safe environment because it is an adventure where they can acquire unique and positive skills. They will be a part of a community where willingness to explore is inherent in the student body, and where lots of people will also be trying new things to their own benefit and that of the society on the long run.
