    Why Charterhouse Primary Charges ₦42 Million A Year

    Inside Nigeria’s most expensive primary school

    School fee: N42 million (per annum)

    Registration/admission fee: N2 million
    (Day and boarding)

    Location: Ogombo Road, Ogombo, Lekki, Lagos

    Charterhouse, founded 413 years ago, is a private, elitist nursery and primary school in the UK.

    This is their first presence in Africa.

    On why they charge 42 million per year,let’s hear the school explain.

    “Charterhouse is not just like every other school anywhere globally but a prestigious and value-driven world-class educational institution that parents, who love quality and second-to-none education, will always want their children to be.”

    Reportedly speaking further, “Some parents are here in Nigeria, and some are based abroad. And they know the quality of education we will give to their children. It is about value, not whether the fees are high or not.

    “They know it will cost them more if they send their children abroad and get the same quality and value we will give them here in Nigeria. The foreign exchange and the associated costs, as well as its nearness.

    “Even though we are yet to commence academic activities and we have not also finished with our construction work, no school in Nigeria has the facilities we have already put in place.

    “And it is not all about physical structures in Charterhouse, but also about quality, both academic and extracurricular, and value for our learners.

    “Schooling in Charterhouse Lagos will be the same as in Charterhouse UK or any other high-profile UK-based school. The only difference is that the Chaterhouse here will be immersed in Nigerian culture, thereby giving our students the best of British education in a multicultural environment.

    “So, we are not just any other school, and many prominent Nigerians who are either products of Charterhouse or have any of their children or relatives attend the school in the UK are very glad that Charterhouse is now here in Lagos, Nigeria.

    “Even here in Lagos, there are some schools, for example, that charge millions of naira per year, while others charge hundreds of thousands, and yet some others charge something less.

    “So, it is now left for parents to decide which one to enrol their children in based on the value they want and their purse.

    “We are building on 70 hectares of land in Lekki, and it will cost us over $150 million at completion, and that is why we are very sure that by the time we are done, people will appreciate us better.”
