School Curriculum

At St. Saviour’s School Ebute Metta, we follow the Nigerian Curriculum programmes of study, but extend and enhance the children’s learning experience by including element of the British Curriculum and offering a wider international perspective to their learning.   

At the end of this information page, are links to information for Parents on specific Curriculum areas.

St. Saviour’s school offers a broad and balanced education, preparing our children to succeed in a challenging global community.  Our children build their understanding of the multi- cultural world in which they live, on an inherent pride in their own nationality and culture. 

They are taught tolerance and respect for all people, irrespective of their race, culture or religion, treating them with dignity and equality.  

Through the curriculum, St. Saviour’s pupils are taught to be good citizens, with a sense of responsibility to themselves and others.   They are taught life skills that will enable them to compete successfully in an every changing and challenging community. 

Their problem-solving skills, creative and independent thinking, as well as entrepreneurial skills will provide them with confidence to fulfill their potential and make a meaningful contribution in later life. 

Parents are encouraged to share the education journey of their children and this is actively promoted within the curriculum and in the wider school activities.
