our history


Clairemont School is a private, independent school founded on the 14th of October 2014 with the mission to “establish Clairemont as a school in innovative and challenging programmes, a fore runner in character building, and a beacon for the mind set of excellence, firmly built upon the foundation of Christian values”. Clairemont School opened its doors with 25 pupils enrolled in Pre- Nursery through Basic six.

I remember with nostalgia the pupils’ excitement and joy despite being very few in number and the school so new and unknown. I remember their parents’ enthusiasm and strong believe that the Clairemont vision is what they have ever wanted for their children. Drawing tears to my eyes was their determination at convincing friends and family to register their children with us, insisting that Clairmont will eventually emerge as the best school not only in festac town but in Lagos and the entire country, even before we took our first steps. These pioneer parents’ believe and trust in the Clairemont vision was pivotal at seeing us through the tough early years. Their enthusiasm sent positive vibes around Festac environs that Clairemont School’s population doubled the very next term. With the admission of other lovely children over the years, we can’t but thank God for the grace granted us within and around the school.

Henry Ford wisely said,” Coming together is the beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success” Since its opening, the school’s dynamic educational environment has continued to evolve with very amazing teachers and supportive parent. Clairement has become a community of Love, togetherness and qualitative service delivery. We purposefully keep classes small to foster strong student-teacher relationships and a strong community. Pupils thrive because of small classes, personal attention, and challenging opportunities.

In line with our mission- Educating minds, building character and shaping the future, our Five Pillars bring our mission to life and provide opportunities for students to challenge themselves in a variety of settings, inside and outside of the classroom. Our Five Pillars are Academic Excellence, Community and Service, Leadership by Example, Strong Moral and ethical values. Honesty and simplicity. As a school, we continually commit to helping our pupils become independent thinkers whose curiosity, creativity, and commitment bring lifelong success.


The school is served by an Advisory Board with representation from the parents and teachers, which provides advice and guidance to the Board of Directors. The Superintendent supported by the management team is responsible for the day to day running of the school. An active PTA provides valuable support and assistance to the school.

Festac town, originally referred to as “Festival Town” or “Festac Village”, is a residential estate designed to house the participants of the Second World Festival of Black Arts and Culture of 1977 (Festac77). Consisting of 5,000 contemporary dwelling units and seven major avenues, the town was designed in an efficient grid in order to accommodate upwards of 45,000 visitors as well as any Nigerian employees and officers working at the Festival.[2] The Nigerian government invested substantial sums of money and resources into building Festac Town, which sported state of the art electrical generators, police and fire stations, access to public transportation, supermarkets, banks, health centres, public restrooms, and postal services.[3] The village was therefore intended to evoke the modern age and the promise of state-sponsored economic development fuelled by oil revenues.[3]


The population of Festac Town is over twenty million The community is inhabited by people from different parts of the country which include Hausa, Igbo, Idoma, Efik, Ijaw, Yorubas and others.Festac Town Housing Estate is the largest public residential housing estate in Nigeria, both in physical size and resident population (Ibiyemi & Adenuga, 2013).


The official language of the land is English Language but the dominant dialect spoken by the people is Yoruba. .


Once a sleepy estate, FESTAC Town has in the past few years attracted varied forms of businesses within the estate and its environs. Today, there is a growing number of commercial banks, and shopping complexes that cater to the residents. There are also several hotels and hangout spots within the estate which have contributed to the vibrant night life.


The town has both public and private educational institutions. These cut across primary, secondary and a government approved university (Hallmark University).
