At Hallmark, our goal is to make out of your child a well-developed person who is academically sound, mentally stable and spiritually mature. We pride ourselves on our determination to raise pupils who have instilled in them the culture of discipline and hard work. We are committed to giving hope to the academically challenged child, as we ensure that no student is allowed to remain or labelled dull. In other words, we give individualized attention to such students.
The prospective student seeking admission into Year 7 at the start of the school in September must reach the age of 10 years by the 30th of September, in that same year. Similarly, students seeking admission into Year 8, 9 and 10 at the start of a school year in September, must reach the age of 12, 13 and 14 years respectively by the 30th September of the year of entry. They will also be expected to provide academic reports and references to support their admissions. Applications are also considered from candidates throughout the school year if the spaces are available in the class applied for.
Applications for admission are accepted throughout the year. Application forms may be purchased either from the HSSO liaison office, the college, or at any of our designated exam centers. Copies can also be downloaded from the school website and submitted at the school. Application forms should be submitted together with a copy of the child’s birth certificate and the latest school report from the child’s current school. The main entrance exams for September are held in March, April or June at our designated centers. Those who are unable to sit for the examination during these periods can contact the school.
Hallmark Secondary School, Ondo, was founded in the year 1995 out of a vision and a burden of the management to provide a secondary school of high academic and moral standard; a school that would groom and produce students that could fit into any situation and condition in life. The Proprietress, Mrs. Aralola Faturoti, a seasoned and well qualified educationist with over fifty years’ experience, took the burden and vision together with her strong faith and planted the seed. Today, the seed is what has now grown to become Hallmark Secondary School – the Centre of Excellence.
