Imperial School - Boarding Facilities
Boarding Admission System
Imperial School Kudenda operates a compulsory boarding system. There is however a special scheme for children from the Kudenda village who meet all the other admission criteria of academic excellence to attend from home if it is proved that the parents of such children could not meet up with the financial demands of full boarding. This is a program to assist rural children, confer some benefits of modern education on the rural village and as a rare contribution towards the development of education in the northern part of Nigeria.

College Fence Project
The issue of security is taken seriously by School management. The role of good fencing around the school premises in controlling unauthorized movement of students cannot be underestimated. Fences imposes privacy and deter intruders in addition to making security surveillance easy. The college had only a dwarf fence of five blocks high at inception. This posed series of problems for the school. Completion of this important project was stalled by the huge capital outlay required to raise the fence which covered over a kilometer. Management however decided to undertake this all important project to ensure safety of students and property.
The second and final phase of this project started in mid November and was completed by the end of December 2005 to the delight of students, staff and parents. It consisted of a 12 block high structure covering the entire perimeter of the college which extended over a kilometer. This project was complemented with the erection of two security outposts at the southern and northern ends of the School. Additional security guards were recruited to bring the total to eight(8) on night duty. Management further installed series of electronic cameras at various locations such as the examination halls, perimeter fences and all other sensitive locations. All these were done to ensure maximum security within the school environment.
