Some Important Tutors

Many of the tutors of the School will also always be remembered with affection by old boys for their immense contribution to the progress and fame of the School. These will include Mr. (later Professor) C O. Taiwo who joined the School in 1939 as Senior Science master and (later master of the Boarding House). It was from the School that he won a government scholarship in 1944 to study Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge. In his recent book "Seventy years in the Nigerian Education System", he says he had happy reminiscences of the School of whose remarkable achievements he is immensely proud. Professor C. O. Taiwo was honoured by the OGS in December 2004, with the award of Honorary Member of the Old Grammarians' Society.

Adeniji (People's Warden at The Cathedral) who taught two generations of Grammarians; Pa Ogunba, the great Geometry Tutor and Pa Adeyemi, who did not spare the rod on unruly boys.
