Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The CMS Grammar School in the Barega district of Lagos is the oldest secondary school in Nigeria, founded on 6 June 1859 by the Church Missionary Society. For decades it was the main source of African clergymen and administrators in the Lagos Colony.The first Anglican Missionaries arrived in Lagos from Sierra Leone in 1842, and established the Yoruba Mission. They founded the school in 1859 with the assistance of local merchants and traders. The CMS Grammar School in Freetown, founded in 1848, served as a model. The school began with six students boarding in a small, single story building called the 'Cotton House' at Broad Street. The first pupils were destined to be clergymen. The curriculum included English, Logic, Greek, Arithmetic, Geometry, Geography, History, Bible Knowledge and Latin.show more
