AFN MANAGEMENT TEAM

The French School of Lagos was founded in 1958 by the Association Française du Nigeria (AFN). Before the current school was built in 1987 with the help of the French Ministry of the Foreign Affairs, it has moved to several places, in Ikoyi and in Victoria Island. Through an agreement signed in 1991 with the new AEFE (Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Etranger), which is an agency of the French Ministry of the Foreign Affairs, the school is now linked with the French Authorities which give it a financial support to run.

In 1997, the French School becomes officially the “Lycée Français”. Extensions of the current building have been done in 1998 and in 2004. The Lycée Français of Lagos is one of the 494 school establishments depending on the AEFE in the world. In order to satisfy its educational mission, the AEFE is working close with the French Ministry of Education: it gives to the agency the possibility to hire teachers and administrative employees who are all French Civil Servants, trained and assessed by the Ministry.

The “Conseiller de Coopération et d’Action Culturelle” is the legal authority representing both Ministries, with the delegation of the French Ambassador. The pedagogy of the school, but also its organization and the running of the exams is managed by the Principal who is assisted by a Director for the Primary School, a CPE (“Conseiller Principal d’Education”) for the Secondary School and by an Administrative and Financial Director for all the other material issues.

The Establishment Council is the representative body in charge of taking these decisions concerning the organization of the school. Concerning the global running of the School (maintenance, investments, treasury, social issues, communication, etc…), the association in charge is the AFN, through its board council.

The management committee (AFN Management Committee) elected from Ordinary and Associate members administrates the school with the following objectives:
(1) Promoting French culture and education according to the French Code of Education, following the French Ministry of Education’s program and in the spirit of the bilateral treaty between France and Nigeria on culture and education,
(2) Delivering official grades and diplomas: the school is mentioned on the list of homologated overseas educational institutions published annually on the Official Bulletin of the French National Education and can deliver French officials grades and diplomas.

For successful delivery of the assignment and support to the school, the school have assigned the following resource persons. We have assigned Engineers, Accountants, Lawyers, Communication Personnel’s and other relevant skilled resources based on the services required at any given time.
