Day Waterman College (DWC) is a purpose built, co-educational boarding school of 500 students aged 11 to 16.  The College is set on 35 hectares of natural landscape in Asu Village, near Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria, less than an hour drive from Lagos.

The College offers world-class facilities in an environment with a natural, peaceful and focused setting. These facilities and equipment of outstanding quality have been provided to support the learning environment, including access to safe recreational areas.
Day Waterman College provides outstanding education that inspires leadership traits as it focuses on the individual child’s ability to excel in the global world. The College is designed to educate young people to become leaders who will be at the forefront of the rapid economic and social development sweeping through Nigeria and the world.

Day Waterman College offers an extensive and varied co-curricular programme, and we strongly encourage our students to participate in these activities to develop new skills, confidence and self- awareness.

The students at Day Waterman College primarily proceed to a range of higher or further educational institutions in the United Kingdom, United States of America, Canada, South Africa and other Europe countries and study towards a variety of qualifications and certifications including A levels, Foundation Diplomas, International Baccalaureate, SATs, High School Matriculation and European Baccalaureate.

Founded by local philanthropist, Mr.Tayo Aderinokun MRF, it opened in 2008 with the aim of providing a world class education to deliver future generations of leaders for Nigeria and the African continent as a whole. Our pastoral team are well experienced to ensure that the students feel at home in the boarding houses.

It is our firm belief that secondary education remains one of the most important phases of a child’s educational journey because it is during the secondary school stage that the most enduring relationships in a person’s life are made. The curriculum therefore, provides students with the skill-set, knowledge and character to contribute and shape the future, and meet the many challenges of a changing world.

Whilst Day Waterman College provides a UK-based education programme, it is located within Ogun State and as such is bound by the guidelines set by the Ogun Ministry of Education, Science and Technology

All students receive a high-quality education that not only caters for their diverse intellectual needs, but also guarantees that their spiritual, emotional, social, and health needs are met.
