ACADEMICS                                                

This is the hallmark that has landed the school in the National limelight since the inception of the 8-4-4 curriculum. The education on offer is holistic education, which encompasses the parameters of spiritual, social, physical and intellect; this is evidenced in the exceptional results they have posted since:

EXAMINATIONS AND CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT TESTS

The minimum number of Continuous Assessments Tests to be administered in any given term is three. However, in subjects such as Maths, English and Kiswahili, the teacher can administer as many as they can possibly give. These Tests are given at no notice to the students and are taken during the respective teacher’s scheduled lesson. Other assignments given such as project work or practicals are also duly marked and recorded under this category.

End of term examinations are formally timetabled and administered during the last weeks of the term.

NB: Any work, which is given, must be marked, and its value should contribute to the end of term grade.

The concept of understanding is more highly espoused as compared to hurrying to complete the syllabus. Indeed in some subjects like Physics and Biology, the teachers slow down deliberately to ensure some topics were left so as to be completed in term three; this is meant to enable the students to peak at the right time for the KCSE.

Only Continuous Assessment Tests are given and used to determine the student’s term grade.

RECOGNITION OF TOP PERFORMING STUDENTS

The top three students in each class are acknowledged during the final assembly of each term, where they are presented with simple gift items. However, the top student together with the most improved and the top three students per subject in KCSE (only those with Grade A) are rewarded during the parents’ day of the succeeding year.

KCSE RESULTS

Further to the release of the KCSE Examination results, all the students are treated to a special luncheon and dinner at an agreed date. The teaching and non teaching are also hosted to a luncheon at a prestigious city hotel, in addition they are also remunerated with a uniform package by the parents (it should be noted that all the teachers are rewarded with the same figure irrespective of the subject performance or whether one had a Form Four class or not). The non-teaching staff is also given a uniform figure, which is slightly less than that of the teachers.

CURRICULUM  Students are admitted into Form One having successfully completed their Primary School Education and they leave after four years in Form Four. During this time, they undergo a complete metamorphosis in the cognitive and psychomotor domains. 

 We provide the 8-4-4 syllabus under the aegis of the Kenya National Curriculum.  The examinable subjects on offer are: English, Kiswahili, Mathematics, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, History, Geography, Christian Religious Education, Home Science, Computer Studies, German, Music and Business Studies. 

 Physical Education is a non-examinable subject offered in all classes. Students in Forms One and Two do a total of twelve subjects. At the end of Form Two, the students make subject selection adhering to the following format:

CORE SUBJECTS

English, Kiswahili  and Mathematics

Compulsory by reason of The Kenya National Examination statutes
 


SCIENCE SUBJECTS   

Biology, Chemistry and Physics 

 
Choose at least two, but Chemistry has been made compulsory by reason of its importance when it comes to University admission into competitive science oriented courses


HUMANITIES

History, Geography & Christian Religious Education

 
Choose at least one, but Christian Religious Education is made compulsory by reason of the school being a Christian school.

TECHNICAL SUBJECTS

 


 

Home Science, Computer Studies, German, Music and Business Studies 

Choose any subject depending on the set choices


At Form Three all students are expected to be enrolled for at least eight subjects. It is gratifying to note that at the culmination of the Secondary School cycle, 100% of our students are eligible for University admission. Of this number, 60% gain admission into competitive courses namely Medicine, Engineering, Actuarial Science, Architecture, Dentistry, Law and Commerce. 

Our students have also secured admission and in some cases scholarships to study at Prestigious Universities such as Yale, Havard, MIT, Oxford, Cambridge, UWC etc on account of their superb academic credentials. These alumni of ours continue to be an inspiration to many a budding student in our school and the current students have vowed to join the long list of achievers and continue to open up avenues for others.

Involvement in academic matters is considered paramount and all other activities are geared towards enhancing the same. Parents, guardians and sponsors are encouraged to be informed of their daughter’s/ ward’s performance at all times. They are invariably expected to make available periodic and meaningful counsel on school and developmental issues to their daughters/ wards.
