He said the new management of the school was committed to simultaneously providing an environment in which individual “is assisted to discover his or her academic potential in learning, sport and personal development.”
“Our main objective is to allow each child to develop his or her unique talents within a disciplined and caring traditional British school environment,” he said.
According to him, “we are continuously developing our relationship with the major colleges and professional bodies globally such as Cambridge, Lambton College, Canada and the University of Kent, among others”.
Mr. Idehen assured the parents and students of the school that the enduring legacy left by his mother would be built on.
