Principal’s Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Thomas Adewumi International College (TAICO) and the educational programmes offered here. Now, more than ever, parents must choose from a staggering number of schools promising to satisfy the educational needs of their children. Propelled by new technologies, many traditional schools are offering similar opportunities for learning. These institutions make a lot of claims but you may wish to ask how valid these are. We believe that education with us prepares students for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of adult life and that time spent here is productive, positive and enjoyable. At TAICO, high-quality teaching, enthusiastic learning, vigorous extra-curricular activities, attentive pastoral care: these things are of fundamental importance to us. We believe that the pursuit of excellence should not be confined to the academic field alone. Self-expression and self-respect require self-discipline and a lively concern for others. We hope to encourage every child in his or her voyage of self-discovery, to urge them to take pleasure in thinking, reading, and learning – but also in all other aspects of school life that appeal to them. We are proud of our school, and the school is proud of its pupils. TAICO is clearly in a league of its own when it comes to education in Nigeria and deserves to be at the top of any parent’s list. Our reputation and strong prevailing ethos come from the College’s sense of purpose. Again, thank you for your interest in Thomas Adewumi International College. It is our pleasure to assist you as you pursue the best possible education for your child.   I look forward to meeting you.

Year 7 and 9, and Sixth Form are the main entry points, but a good number of students both boys and girls join the school in Year 8, 10 and 11 each year; the process is the same as for Year 7 and 9. We look forward to welcoming you to TAICO, the best place to be.

Holistic Education

At TAICO we are interested in engaging and developing the students not just academically, but also physically, emotionally and spiritually. We believe success outside the classroom is as important as the success/achievement within the classroom. Hence, we value a rich mixture of extra-curricular activities that span the academic year to produce learners with a wide range of skills and who are knowledgeable in different areas. We provide the students with a diversity of experiences and richness of different cultures. Our vision of the holistic leader means somebody who acknowledges and honours their own complexity, who recognizes that we all co-create our world, and who takes responsibility for their own part in this process, utilizing both their inner (intellect, insight and imagination) and outer (natural, social and political environment) resources.
