Our rigorous interview process ensures that only the best, fully qualified, teachers are employed at Osiligi Obaya. Teachers are selected for their love of children, love of teaching, as well as their teaching ability. Excellent teachers can only perform well if the rest of the school performs. Florence, our outstanding school secretary ensures this is the case.




                                “Children are always great to work with as they are very frank and will                                                   never make you annoyed.”
