Secondary/High School
Boarding Only


Founded by local philanthropist, Mr.Tayo Aderinokun MRF, it opened in 2008 with the aim of providing a world class education to deliver future generations of leaders for Nigeria and the African continent as a whole. Our pastoral team are well experienced to ensure that the students feel at home in the boarding houses.

It is our firm belief that secondary education remains one of the most important phases of a child’s educational journey because it is during the secondary school stage that the most enduring relationships in a person’s life are made. The curriculum therefore, provides students with the skill-set, knowledge and character to contribute and shape the future, and meet the many challenges of a changing world.

Whilst Day Waterman College provides a UK-based education programme, it is located within Ogun State and as such is bound by the guidelines set by the Ogun Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.

All students receive a high-quality education that not only caters for their diverse intellectual needs, but also guarantees that their spiritual, emotional, social, and health needs are met.
