Curriculum Overview

Curriculum Overview

Whilst Day Waterman College provides a UK-based education programme, it is located within Ogun State and as such follows the directives issued from the Ogun Ministry of Education. Therefore we are continually developing our curriculum provision map so that it integrates the Nigerian and British curricula into one comprehensive programme of study.

In line with the British education structure, our students encounter two clear stages to their education: KS3 (Years 7, 8 and 9) and KS4 (Years 10 and 11).

At KS3 all students will experience a broad and balanced curriculum covering the following focused subject areas: English, maths, sciences (combined in years 7 and 8, separate in year 9), religious education, information technology, history, geography, French, Spanish, Yoruba, physical education, art, design and technology, drama and music. All of these will be a blend of British and Nigerian content. Additionally, students will study PSHE (Personal, Social and Health education) as well as global perspectives .

In year 9, students are asked to select six optional subjects including at least one science. Their choices will define their individual KS4 programme of study within which every student will follow 4 core subject areas: English Language, English Literature, mathematics, religious studies, physical education, PSHE. The latter two subject areas are non-IGCSE.

A number of our students also undertake extra studies for the JAMB, SAT and SSAT examinations.

As each student prepares for life after Day Waterman College, the educational foundation they carry forward with them ensures they can transit easily into institutions in the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, mainland Europe and Eire – and of course Nigeria.
