Welcome to Corona School Ikoyi located at No. 6, Mekwunwen Road, Ikoyi. It is a forward looking primary school with excellent modern facilities for 5-11 year olds. It is set in extensive grounds away from the bustle of the busy main roads.
Corona School Ikoyi opened in 1958. It grew rapidly through the years and presently, it has 559 pupils spread across four arms of classes 1-5 and three arms of class 6.
Besides the Head of School, Ikoyi School has a Deputy Head of School, a Sectional Head, 65 Teaching staff, 9 Administrative staff and 19 Support staff. We continually strive for academic excellence. We do have big ideas to bring out the best in each child for ‘Every child is a star; A masterpiece’.
The Corona School Ikoyi creed which the children recite every day at assembly states that ‘At Corona School Ikoyi we value good manners and obey all school and class rules. We speak politely, we do not make noise. We walk, we do not run. We remember to bring the things we need for each day. We always try to do our best.’ Our children not only recite this but strive to abide by it.
The School is connected to internet facilities to facilitate supervised independent research when pupils are given class assignments. Our specialist rooms – Library, Learning Support Room, Home Economics Room, ICT Laboratory, Science Laboratory, Sick bay, are all equipped with modern facilities. Our classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards and computers.
Our mission is in line with the Corona Wide Mission to deliver world class education to children; to provide Quality Education for Every Child (QEEC) with a passion for national and global exposure. In doing this, we give our children a chance to take the lead in whole school assemblies and school functions. We also get our children involved in the ‘Read-a-Book’ programme where pupils are encouraged to read at least a book a week and they are given bookmarks as incentives for their achievement and in several extracurricular activities to help them unwind and consequently work better.
