YPA Boarding System

There is an excellent range of facilities and activities offered in Yintab Boarding system. Standards of care and accommodation are generally very high, as the school has continued to invest in new upgraded boarding facilities.

Also, to ensure that students have adequate time for relaxation and socialization, a well furnished common room with television sets, connected to the satellite have been put in place. There is adequate monitoring and supervision regarding the use of computers and television in the hostels.
Our boarding facilities are to provide a comfortable and happy environment for our Students. At Yintab Private Academy your child is our child…that is our commitment. Our aim is be attentive to our students’ needs and make them feel at home within Yintab Private Academy. We encourage students to be self-reliant and self-motivated, thereby having a positive attitude towards independent learning and taking up responsibilities they would otherwise not take at home. We encourage students to be involved in household chores, healthy habits and maintaining high standards of etiquette.


School rules are intended to ensure the safety and welfare of pupils and the smooth functioning of the school community.


Good manners, a sense of responsibility and tidiness are expected of children at all times. Violence, bullying, threatening or dishonest behaviour is not permitted, nor is the possession of fireworks, dangerous weapons, cigarettes, alcohol, illegal drugs or pornographic material.
All students must:

– do their morning piece of work
– lay their beds properly especially when not in use.
– adhere strictly to the Daily Routine time table (siesta, prep, assemblies, games, labour etc.) as non-compliance attracts punishment of varying degrees.
– maintain orderliness in the dinning Hall, common room, reading room, and generally all over the compound.
– bring their full set of cutlery to the Dinning Hall.
– make themselves available for the statutory Saturday or any other unannounced inspection.

No student should:

Mobile phones, electronic games, walkmans, i-pods, i-phones, mp3 players, etc are strictly prohibited in school. Laptops will only be allowed under strict supervision. Parents are not to provide internet connection without the permission of the school.

Children should take pride in their personal appearance and ensure that their clothes are neat and clean.

Children will be given a reasonable amount of house duties, where they learn responsibility for their surroundings, e.g. making their beds, Tidying their lockers, desks, rooms and sweeping their rooms/taking care of their living environment.

Children may only leave the school premises under express permission of the boarding house parent. They will have an exit permit. Parents will put their request in writing, if they want to pick up their children.

Various sanctions are meted out to children who break the school rules. The most common punishments are as follows:
Detention: The child is required to do supervised academic work or community service for 30 minutes or more during the time when he would otherwise be free e.g. after school. This is normally used for infringements such as minor misbehaviour.
Suspension: The child may be asked to leave the school for a short period. This is not a holiday, and may disrupt the child’s academic work and is used for a very serious breach of school rules such as consistent bullying, fighting, insulting, stealing or unauthorised exeats.
Expulsion: In extreme cases such as the possession of illegal drugs or sexual relationships, a child may be asked to leave the school altogether. There is no refund of school fees.

The hostel building is out of bounds during school hours. If for some reason a boarder is required to go to the boarding house, he/she has to have a permission slip from the concerned Teacher/Resident House Mistress/House Master.
Any Letter/Parcel that is being delivered to any student will be checked by hostel staff first and only after that will it be handed over to the student.
Calling your child is allowed during the week between 6pm-9pm. At the weekend, you can call anytime. You will have the phone number of your child’s House Master/Mistress. Children can call their parents at specified times. It is only a call me back service.

Muslims will have their religious worship on Fridays in Ikorodu West Local Development Council’s Mosque, while Christians will attend Church service in the school.

A barber will be provided weekly for the boys. However, all boys must come with their name-engraved personal clippers. All girls will have hair dressers come in weekly to braid their hair. The children will pay for this service.

If your child is on special medication, we need details for its administration. Also the child’s personal doctor’s details will be required. Medical details should be forwarded to the office of the Principal.
Children that are Asthmatic and require an inhaler should bring the inhaler to school, with an extra one kept in the care of the House Parent.

Fees are paid in advance at the beginning of the term. There will be no refund of fees if any student is withdrawn from the school at mid-term.

A bell will be rung for lights out. After this, no student is to leave his bed 30 minutes after lights-out. In an emergency, permission must be obtained from the prefect in charge of the dormitory. Silence is to be observed after the ringing of the first bell. Lights-out is on the second bell. In the morning, students may not get out of bed before rising bell without the permission of a master.

  2. Reasonable amount of money (neither far in excess of the student needs nor too small) should be given as pocket money.
