I hope that the website will give you an insight into the vibrant and exciting school we are developing here in the beautiful city of Calabar in Cross River State.

Rather like the city itself, Awaras’ Academy has grown rapidly since it was established in 2014 and we are passionate about providing the very best educational opportunities for the host and expat communities in the Cross River State capital and Nigeria.

The school has a strong academic base and excellent facilities and we aspire to become the best international primary and secondary school in Nigeria and then to rank amongst the top international primary and secondary schools worldwide.

We provide outstanding opportunities that develop every aspect of our students’ interest and ability. We aim to develop a lifelong love of learning and to encourage every child to discover and nurture their passions. We ensure that they are fully prepared for the next stage of their education.

Alongside our academic program we have a well-developed extra-curricular program of sports, science, music and art. Our school is renowned for its musical and dramatic productions, which are often the talk of the town! Our swimming squads regularly return from galas laden with medals. We insist on commitment, teamwork and sportsmanship.

Our parents tell us that they enjoy the warm welcome they get here, the positive and collaborative relationship they have with the staff and the fact that the school has a real sense of community.

They say it really feels as if they are part of ‘The Awaras’ Academy family’. We are very proud of this relationship as we know that together we can ensure a fantastic future for the children here.

Websites really only offer a glimpse of life but we hope that it will be sufficient to encourage you to come and visit us.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
