The Regent School is a co-educational day school for children between the ages of two and eleven. The aim of The Regent is to develop excellence in academic achievement, social conduct and moral values and to ensure that this learning process is enjoyable and fulfilling for the individual child in a friendly family atmosphere. The School has earned an enviable reputation for outstanding academic, sporting and cultural achievements.
The Regent School aims to provide a structured, purposeful and caring learning environment for all its pupils, within which each girl or boy can feel confident to explore, develop and realise his or her full potential, helped and encouraged by teachers who are expert practitioners of their craft and fully committed to meeting the needs of the children in their care.
Specifically, we aim to:

Provide a pleasant and challenging environment
Nurture self-esteem in all and so develop confidence and self-discipline

Children who are comfortable with adults and fellow pupils.
Children who are willing to “have a go”, to use their initiative and who are not afraid to make mistakes.
Children who look after themselves, others and their surroundings, both in and out of school.

THE ENTRY PROCEDURE
Parents who are interested in their child(ren) attending The Regent School can collect an Application Pack from the Registrar which details the process to be followed in applying for a place. Alternatively, parents may download an Application Form from our website and send it to us with the required supporting documents. These include the following:
Birth Certificate or current Passport
Up-to-date Immunisation Certificate
Latest Report from current school for children joining in Y1 upwards
Prospective parents collecting an Application Pack will find an Application Form, which must be completed and returned to the School, either in person or electronically, and be accompanied by the Application Fee, which is non-refundable. When this is returned, a file is opened for the prospective pupil and all actions in respect of this admission are logged and dated on the tracker sheet contained therein. Deciding on the right school for one's child is very important and we believe that a personal visit is invaluable. Prospective pupils are invited to visit the School with their parents so that they can view the facilities, meet the Headmaster and the other relevant staff.
Children are offered places in the School based on:
Results of an educational assessment visit
Reference to the latest reports from the current school attended
Where places are oversubscribed, priority is given on the following basis:
Prospective pupil with siblings who are already pupils in the Primary or Secondary Schools.
Date of submission of application forms
Pupils should normally be the correct age for the year group, based on 1st September cut off with a pupil expecting to attain the age of eleven in his/her last primary school year.
Children born after the 1st September will be put into the year Group below, so they go through as the oldest in their year, rather than the youngest.
Prior to an offer being made parents or guardians must declare any specific learning support requirement, medical condition or disability so that we can ensure we can meet the pupil's individual needs.
The prospective pupil will be invited to spend a day at school.
During the course of the day, the child will work and play alongside the other children in the class, and through specific assessments and activities the Head of Year will be able to reach a judgement as to whether the child will be able to cope with the level of academic work at The Regent School.
Children applying for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 may spend some of their assessment day undertaking online tests away from the classroom.
Children coming from abroad will be assessed by reference to their most recent school reports together with any other available information from their current school, for example a confidential reference and samples of their work. In this way, a place can usually be offered, which can then be ratified by a formal assessment upon arrival in Abuja.
No specific preparation for an assessment is needed.
Children joining our Nursery classes and older must be toilet trained, clean and dry.
COMMUNICATING THE RESULT OF THE ASSESSMENT
After the assessment visit the Head of Department will make a recommendation to the Headmaster.
The Headmaster will then decide whether or not to offer a place. This process will be completed within 48 hours.
Although the Headmaster's decision is final, he is always prepared to meet the parents of unsuccessful candidates to explain the reasons for not offering a place and to offer advice about other schooling options.
If the candidate is successful, a formal offer letter will be issued by the Registrar for the parents to sign and return, along with their payment of the Development Levy. This acts as a deposit to secure the school place.
Full payment of the first term's fees must then be received before the child is able to start school.
The Regent School is usually oversubscribed and any place offer will have a limited validity period, (usually fourteen days), after which the offer will be automatically rescinded and the place offered to another prospective pupil.
No place offer is considered to have been accepted until all the administrative matters have been completed and all the necessary fees have been paid.
All communications between the Registrar and prospective parents will be in person, by phone or by e-mail. Text messages are unreliable and will not be used at any point during the admissions process.
Information about fees and sibling discounts does not form part of this policy, but is available from the Registrar.
Applications for admission should register by the January or February of the year of admission or earlier if desired.
The Regent endeavours to make places available to siblings, subject to space being available in the relevant year group.
There is no discrimination at entry on grounds of race, religion, disability, socio-economic background or gender and no preference is given to a particular parental occupation.
Our aim is to encourage applications from candidates with as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible.
This enriches our community and is vital in preparing our pupils for today's world.
CHILDREN WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS
The Regent School does not discriminate in any way regarding entry. We welcome pupils with additional needs, provided that we are confident that we can offer the support they require. We welcome pupils with physical disabilities as long as our site can cope with them. However, we advise parents of children with additional educational needs or physical disabilities to discuss their child's requirements with the Headmaster and Head of Additional Needs before registering their child.
Parents should provide a copy of an Educational Psychologist's report or a medical report to support their request, for example for extra time or other special arrangements.
The Regent reserves the right to withdraw or withhold a school place for any child displaying needs which cannot be adequately met, at the Headmaster's discretion.
The Regent does not select for entry based on religious belief. The Regent Primary is a secular school and whilst we celebrate diversity we do not give religious instruction.
THE REGENT'S CONTRACTUAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These are clearly laid out on the Admission Form and parents are advised to read the terms carefully.
The UK National Curriculum 2014 is a useful starting point but departments will adapt and enhance their programmes of study to ensure that every pupil is motivated, inspired and challenged.
The curriculum embraces the five outcomes set out in ‘Every Child Matters’ – Stay safe; Be healthy; Enjoy and achieve; Achieve economic well-being; Make a positive contribution. The curriculum will engage the children’s interest, encourage and inspire them to want to learn. It will be exciting and offer pupils first-hand experience to re-enforce their learning and to underpin their growing knowledge, skills and understanding. It will open their eyes to the wonders of creation and cause them to marvel at the incredible and fantastic world in which we live.
All children have access to the Core and Foundation subjects as specified in the UK National Curriculum 2014, and Specific (Literacy, Numeracy, Knowledge of the World and Creative Development) areas of learning as recommended for the Early Years. The curriculum is delivered in the context of an integrated approach. Planning is underpinned by the Understanding by Design (UbD) approach for all departments at The Regent School. All learning delivered is cross-curricular.
In addition to the areas of learning which focus on :Literacy, Numeracy and Science, The Regent School syllabus is broad and challenging and based on real life learning opportunities and includes: French,
History, Geography, Music, Computing, Art & Design Technology, Drama, PSHE, Nigerian Studies and PE all of which are linked to topic plans .
Our curriculum is enhanced by the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave.
We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential
