It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official Website of Kings College, Lagos. The Website was opened in February 2010 at the inception of my administration. King’s College is a dual campus secondary education college for boys and was established by the colonial administration on 9/9/1909. It started its academic activities on Monday, 20/9/1909, with Mr. Lomax as its first Principal. Within a short time of its institution the College established itself both in quality and development as a Nigerian premier school. This was corroborated by Sir Fredrick Luguard, the Colonial Governor General of Nigeria, who in 1914 described King’s College, Lagos in a white paper as “the leading school in the colony as well as the premier school”. Upon inception, King’s College opened with 10 students and remained the besought of all lovers of good education for over a century, now with its population peaking up to 3000 in 2012/2013. Out of the 3000 student population, 2700 are boarders, while 300 are day students.Principal, Kings College Lagos, Nigeria.
