To empower pupils to pursue a passion for acquiring knowledge, lead lives of integrity and be self-motivated and socially responsible citizens of the world;
To build a distinguished tradition of constant and uninterrupted improvement and to equip each child with the keys of a successful education needed for the twenty-first century.

Our academic structure:
Our academic calendar runs in three terms – Christmas (September to December), Easter (January to March) and Summer (April to July). Special government declared holidays within Nigeria are also observed.
ASSESSMENT CYCLES – Temple School runs a cyclical assessment system that informs teachers’ planning and preparation, while also providing data based evaluation of student progress. All children in the primary and secondary sections sit for internal Cycle Tests each half term, and one internal end of term examination.
In addition to these, we enter our children for the following external examinations:
The Baseline Assessments in the Reception Year
Cambridge Checkpoint examinations in Year 6
Cambridge Checkpoint examinations in Year 9
IGCSE examinations in year 11 and
The regional West African Secondary School Certificate Examinations in Year 12.
We offer an extensive range of IGCSE, and WAEC subjects, and have recorded consistently improving results over the years.
The school’s design in all sections incorporates the latest thinking in planning and layout, building standards and information technology. The classroom resources are all brand new and therefore specifically designed to complement the curriculum.
Temple aims to provide a safe, secure, welcoming and nurturing environment where everyone is valued equally.
We are a co-educational and inclusive school, with small class sizes. Our entrance exams are designed to give us an authentic snapshot of students’ entry levels.
To inspire our children to be successful lifelong learners, effective contributors, confident individuals and responsible citizens of the world we work in partnership with home, community and other local and international service providers.
Assessment is a continuous process, which is integral to our teaching. We assess children in order to ascertain what they have learnt, so that we can plan the next stages of their development. Much of the assessment is based on the teacher’s professional judgment of the child’s achievements and is backed with evidence of the child’s work.
ACADEMIC STAFF, We have very special qualified and experienced teachers plus special needs/support teachers. Most children have 'special needs' at some time during their school life. Our teachers are able to meet the wide range of academic and social needs of most of the children in their class. Those children with either learning difficulties or exceptional abilities receive additional support.
