Greensprings School announces 2018-2019 scholarship entrance examination into Year 7 and IB Diploma
Greensprings School has announced its annual scholarship examinations for entry into Year 7 and the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
Here at Greensprings, we are consistently redefining education in Africa and we believe that every child deserves a world-class and well-rounded education. Children need a solid foundation to become global citizens, achieve their dreams and contribute immensely to their communities. This scholarship will enable students to develop personal integrity and leadership skills which they can draw from for the rest of their lives.
Even more exciting this year is the opportunity for students to study the newly introduced Thinking Skills programme. In partnership with Thinking School International, Greensprings is licensed as the first thinking school in Nigeria, purposefully teaching 21st Century learning skills in ‘thinking environments’ aimed at helping students develop their meta-cognition and growth-mindset ability to the highest levels.

Growth mindset is at the core of Greensprings curriculum because we believe a good education is not just about succeeding at the current tasks but developing a mindset that will become very valuable later. Students are encouraged to look beyond their current accomplishments and strive to achieve greatness, through being consistently courageous to embark on new tasks.
This year, six students from Greensprings School were honoured at the British Council where they received the Cambridge – Outstanding Learner Awards.
These awards include: top in the world for mathematics; top in Nigeria for Additional mathematics and economics; top in Nigeria for Accounting; top in Nigeria for Chemistry; top in Nigeria for Drama and top in Nigeria for Spanish.
Also last year, two students of Greensprings school were among the best in the world at the South African Mathematics Olympiad competition.
In addition, a Greensprings student Ugochukwu and his team members won the apprentice competition organized by Microsoft and Business Day earlier in the year.
Greensprings also promote sports through several valuable initiatives such as the annual Greensprings Kanu Football Camp, in partnership with Kanu Nwankwo (ex-Super Eagles captain), where international coaches from English Premier League club and the Dutch Football Association are invited to train students between the ages of 5 and 17 on the basic foundation of playing football. This initiative commenced 7 years ago and has produced young football superstars who now play for the Nigerian under-15 national team.
Furthermore, the vast majority of Greensprings’ students are accepted by top universities in Europe, North America, Asia, America and Nigeria, as well as other parts of Africa. Every year, a high number of Greensprings students are awarded scholarships at some of the world’s top universities.
