our history

Cambridge College was established in October 1996 and full learning activities commenced in January 1997 with eight teaching staff and twelve students. The initial 5-member Board of Governors comprised Chief V. A. Brown, a Pharmacist and successful businessman (Chairman), Wale Odunlami, B.Sc. FCA (Founder/Principal), Gbemi Onakoya, B.Sc. FCA; T. Marriot, XXX and XXX, B.sc….

The college was initially established as a sixth form college but after several years of successfully preparing students for both the Ordinary and Advanced Level examinations of the Cambridge International Education Board, it obtained Lagos State Government approval to operate a regular secondary school curriculum. This enabled Cambridge College to integrate Nigeria’s secondary school curriculum with the curriculum of the British education system to broaden the knowledge acquired by students.

The College was previously located at Ajao Road, off Adeniyi Jones, within the Ikeja Metropolis of Lagos State, Nigeria. But to be able to more successfully achieve the mission of the school, the founder, Hon Wale Odunlami moved the school site to a bigger and more conducive location in Ikeja GRA in 2008. It is currently located at No 41B Ladoke Akintola Way G.R.A. Ikeja, Lagos. This permanent location is easily accessible and consists of an Administrative Block, a multi-storey classroom and laboratory block, and boarding facilities. Additional boarding and sports facilities are provided in an annex nearby.

The school has grown in leaps and bounds due to the consistently-outstanding performance of its students in both secondary school-leaving exams and international exams. (needs more details here).

The objective of the College is to help our students achieve educational excellence at a level that conforms with internationally acceptable standards. Consequently, each class is made up of a small number of students to ensure individual attention from the teachers. Also, all our teachers are well-trained and have many years of experience.

We are proud of our very high academic standards. The results of our students in the SSCE and Cambridge Overseas GCE A/O Level in the past years are a testimony and proof of the qualitative education that we delive
