About Meadow Hall

The School comprises of a Crèche, an Infant School, a Junior School and a College. It runs an integrated scheme made up of British and Nigerian curricula and disseminates knowledge to over a thousand children. Meadow Hall is an inclusive school where children with different learning challenges and special needs such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, Down’s syndrome etc are catered for through its Special Education Needs (SEN) department. Gifted and talented children are also provided with enrichment and extension programmes to further develop their gift. The School also has a well-equipped Sports Centre housing basketball and volleyball courts, a FIFA standard turf, a half-size Olympic swimming pool and much more. In September 2014, Meadow Hall extended their expertise to the Ikoyi environs with the launch of a second site. Meadow Hall Ikoyi has both Infant and Junior Sections. After 13 years of existence Meadow Hall can boast of 10sets of graduates and the vision is not only being realised but has now evolved to a Group of companies. Apart from Meadow Hall Education, the group has other subsidiary companies which include: Meadow Hall Consult, Spring Meadow Edutainment, Meadow Hall Branchise and Meadow Hall Foundation. In 2008, Meadow Hall Consult was set-up with a vision of training and raising the standard of education service providers across the nation. Indeed by training teachers across the nation, we are better positioned to positively influence the educational system. We are also guaranteed to reach out to more children with every teacher trained in our well established Consult. Then in May 2009, Meadow Hall Foundation was incorporated as the non-profit arm of the Meadow Hall Group to support communities, public schools, pupils and teachers through various charitable initiatives and programmes. The vision of the Foundation is to touch the heart of the Nigerian child. In 2014, we started Spring Meadow Edutainment and Meadow Hall Branchise. Spring Meadow Edutainment is focused on helping the ‘Nigerian child’ maximise their potential and become the very best in arts, sports, music etc. It provides the opportunity for the children to be exposed to the rigorous practice and drills required to hone their skills. Meadow Hall Branchise evolved from our passion to establish and sustain excellent educational practices. We believe, with our focus on best practices in the education industry and our experience, we can offer much more to our immediate market and the world at large. We have set up a franchise Scheme to help spread best practices in education and make our brand more readily available to the Nigerian child.
