St Anne's School, Ibadan is a secondary school for girls in Ibadan, Nigeria. The school took its current name in 1950, after a merger between Kudeti Girls School, founded in 1899, and CMS Girls School, Lagos, founded in 1869. It can therefore claim to be the oldest girls secondary school in Nigeria.[1]

CMS Girls School, Lagos[edit]

The CMS Female Institution was founded on 1 May 1869, ten years after the Church Missionary Society had founded CMS Grammar School, Lagos as the first boys grammar school in Nigeria. Abigail Macaulay, wife of the boys' school headmaster, and daughter of Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther, had pressed for there to be a girls' institution, in order that rich people in Lagos no longer need send their girls abroad to study.[2] The school, situated on what today is Broad Street in Lagos, initially had sixteen pupils. Mrs. Roper was its first principal. In 1891, the name was changed to CMS Girls Seminary, and in 1926 the name was again changed to CMS Girls School.[3]

St Anne's School, Ibadan[edit]

In 1950 the school was renamed, in honour of the missionary Anna Hinderer. Anna, and her husband's, tomb had been renovated by Kudeti Girl's School in 1933. The school celebrates its 'birthday' on July 26, the feast day of Saint Anne.[2]
