The British International School, Lagos is one of Nigeria’s leading schools. Situated on a large purpose-built campus in the heart of one of Africa’s liveliest cities, the school offers a broad and balanced education to around 370 students aged between eleven and eighteen. The school is co-educational and accepts both day-students and boarders.
