The provisional Council of the University of Lagos made a request to the Federal Ministry of Education in 1966 to start a primary school for the children of staff of the University. Additional advantages to be derived were that:
The school would serve as a practice school for the College of Education (A successor to the Federal Advanced Teacher’s College)
The school would help to improve the output of the Staff of University who would have had to leave to collect their children from various schools.
The Staff School started operating on the 10 th October 1966, on the University Campus at Akoka. It was housed within temporary wooden building consisting of 9 classrooms, a small assembly hall, and an office for the headmistress. It enrolled 1.56 pupils including about 30, who were children of non-members of Staff of the University.
