For some reason, Queens College does not seem to have a properly functioning website. For a school of their magnitude, it is more than strange. So when you try to find out about the school fees via their official website, you end up at a link that leads nowhere.
However, Schoolings.org provides some information on the school fees at Queens College Yaba. Now, as this is not official information, you can check with the school through e-mail on email@example.com, call the number +2348033000000 or leave an inquiry at www.queenscollegelagos.com.ng/contact.

Queen's College Yaba, Lagos, has been around since 1927. It was established during the times when Nigeria was still a British colony and it is still open to this day. What started out as a small institution with 20 students and less than a dozen teachers (including the principal) has grown into a large and reputable school with over 3,000 students and 300 teachers.
The school is girls only (boys have Kings College) and it offers numerous activities for its students, both during classes and after.
