There are two Regent Schools in Abuja. The Regent Primary School was founded in 2000 in order to provide a British style education of high quality to Nigerian children and to the children of expatriates living and working in the growing city of Abuja, now the capital of Nigeria. It has developed into a friendly, thriving day school offering a broad and balanced education for boys and girls aged 2 - 11. The school is very popular in Abuja and has an excellent reputation in the locality. It has grown rapidly and there are now over 500 pupils on roll. Many classes have waiting lists. Entry is by day visit and assessment.
In addition to the expansion of the Primary School, the decision was also taken earlier in 2007 to open a separate new Secondary School. In order to effect this Year 6 were retained at the Primary School to become Year 7 and an additional Year 8 was started as well. There are currently more than 300 students in the school in Years 7 to 11. The Primary and Secondary Schools shared the Primary campus for the first two years of the Secondary School, though the Secondary students had their own specialist subject staff as well as a completely separate timetable and daily programme.
The Secondary students moved to a new purpose built campus in September 2009.
Secondary education of any quality in Abuja was very limited and the advent of a new secondary school was widely acclaimed, by both the Nigerian and expatriate communities alike. The new school is of the same high quality and excellent standards for which The Regent School is well known in Abuja and more widely in Nigeria. The Regent Secondary School offers an adapted version of the National Curriculum for England and Wales in Year 7 and 8, CIE Checkpoint in Year 9 and CIE IGCSE in Year 10 and 11. It is a boarding school with a day-student option. Our present cohort of students includes a number who have transferred directly from the Primary School, and a number from different schools in and outside Abuja. Boarding is very much desired by Nigerian parents for their secondary-age sons and daughters, and about one third of the three hundred plus students are boarders.
