    Writer's Review

    Known and respected for their academic prowess and sporting talents, King's College is an all-male school and a brother school to Queen's College. Their uniform is White upon White, and passing Mission street, you can see into their hostels. The school is rich in history as one of the oldest schools in Lagos. Although over the years it suffered neglect and entered a state not befitting its status, the current administration have done much to restore it to its former glory.
