Kagumo High  School – Description

Kagumo High  School is a Boys boarding school, located in Kiganjo location, Nyeri County. For further information please see the school contacts below.

Kagumo High School Results

Kagumo High School is self driven by a passion for perfection. The school has its set rules and regulations that govern individual students conduct as well as inter-personal relationship between a student and other members of the school community and stakeholders.

Kagumo High School encourages and rewards self discipline where students work without much supervision. Doing the right thing at the right time and at the right place sums up self discipline. It is this self discipline that has enabled our school to shine academically and in co-curricular activities.

Peer enforced discipline plays an important role in our school. Students guide and counsel those who may not be towing the line. This is especially through the student leaders who form a hierarchy which ensures free flow of communication between the administration and the students. Discipline therefore is everybody’s responsibility with each student being a brother’s keeper. Kagumo school management however invites parents and guardians to sort out indiscipline cases that impede on the academic performance of the students and harmonial co-existence. This is especially when a student lacks self drive and self sacrifice. It is important to note being in school means denying oneself comforts and pleasures found at home for the sake of academics. This may result to indiscipline and hence the need to involve the guardian.

All in all we are clear of our mission, “To develop gentlemen of consolidated intellect”

Nakuru High School – Nakuru Boys High School

Nakuru High School Details

Nakuru High School is one of Kenya’s National Schools located in Nakuru Town, along Nakuru – Bahati Road, 500M off Nakuru – Nairobi Highway. It borders Nakuru State House to the East. Nakuru Boys High School was founded in 1927 as Francis Scott High School but later renamed to Nakuru High School after Kenya attained independence in 1963.

The first stone was laid by the then colonial governor Edward William Macleay Grigg. It has roughly 200 acres of land at the foothills of Menengai Crater. Initially the co-educational institution was reserved for children of the whites who lived in the outlying farming areas and British administrators. All teachers, masters (as they were called at the time) were also white. First formed as a boarding school, it still allowed day bergs on condition that they lived around the school.

By the late 1950s, the school had grown to have a swimming pool, numerous rugby pitches, basketball courts, football pitches, hockey and cricket fields. The school also had well equipped learning resources. It had fully furbished classrooms, and science laboratories. Unique was the weather station where geography students took practical lessons. To keep up with its fast pace of growth, a large contingent of residential subordinate staff was employed.

After Kenya’s independence in 1963, gradual changes followed including being renamed and the first admissions of children of African origin. The first black students who pioneered entry to the school suffered harsh racial discrimination from students of Asian descent. In 1964 the school was opened to girls, making it the only national co-educational school in the whole country.

A few years later, black teachers were employed, and in 1982 the first African principal, Mr.Francis Kesui, was appointed to the school.

The school has consistently produced notable leaders, scholars, actors, players and countless professionals.

The school employs a holistic approach of child development where emphasis is put not only academic performance but also to co-curricular activities like Rugby and drama.

Rugby is a signature game for Nakuru High School.Nakuru Boys High School

Nakuru Boys High School

Before the school was split, it had the largest number of students in the country. By mid-2000 this uncontrolled admission led to leaders/stake holders calling for its split. The main objective was to increase adequate and quality educational opportunities for the girl child in the region and to improve the management of the two schools in order to enhance educational outcomes.

It was also arguable that despite being mixed, girls had their own classes and dining hall. In 2006 the school was split into the current Nakuru Boys High School and Nakuru Girls High School. Both schools have since recorded a remarkable improvement in KCSE performance.

Nakuru Boys High School is categorised as a national school, meaning it recruits students who do well from all over Kenya according to the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education(KCPE). The old education system (O-Level and A-Level System), consisted from 1st forms to 6th forms. It also offered business courses, i.e. ACNC and CPA and also Secretarial courses. But after changes occurred, it changed to form 1 – 4 (8-4-4- system)

The Principals that have headed Nakuru Boys High School are:

  1. Mr. Paul Kibet- 2013- to Date
  2. Mr. Kirui- 2006-2013
  3. Mr.Paul Kendagor-1998-2006
  4. Mr. Francis Kesui-1982-1998

Nakuru High School Results

Academically an upward mobility has been achieved. In 2006 the school registered a Mean Score of 8.1 with an improvement index of 0.79. In 2007, the school further improved to 8.95 and was ranked number 54 nationally. In 2008 the school had a mean score of 8.01.

University of Nairobi

The inception of the University of Nairobi is traced back to 1956, with the establishment of the Royal Technical College which admitted its first lot of A-level graduates for technical courses in April the same year. The Royal Technical College was transformed into the second University College in East Africa on 25th June, 1961 under the name Royal College Nairobi and was admitted into special relations with the University of London whereupon it immediately began preparing students in the faculties of Arts, Science and Engineering for award degrees of the University of London.

Meanwhile, students in other faculties such as the Faculty of Special Professional Studies (later renamed Faculty of Commerce) and Faculty of Architecture continued to offer diplomas for qualifications of professional bodies/ institutions.

Faculty of Agriculture; Faculty of Arts; Faculty of Commerce; Faculty of Education; Faculty of External Studies; Faculty of Law; Faculty of Science; Faculty of Social Sciences; Faculty of Veterinary Medicine; Institute of African Studies; School of Computing And Informatics; School of Engineering; School of Dental Sciences; School of Medicine; School of Pharmacy; School of The Built Environment

On 20th May 1964, the Royal College Nairobi was renamed University College Nairobi as a constituent college of inter-territorial, Federal University of East Africa, and henceforth the enrolled students were to study for degrees of the University of East Africa and not London as was the case before. In 1970, the University College Nairobi transformed into the first national university in Kenya and was renamed the University of Nairobi.

As an institution of higher learning, the University of Nairobi has contributed greatly to the development of Kenya. The university, in turn, has benefited much from its location, in the country’s capital, Nairobi, as well as, from the efforts of the nation’s diverse population. Below are some highlights of the University development, as well as, factual information on its setting.

Since 1970, the University of Nairobi has seen many innovations, which have contributed to its development and that of the nation. It has grown from a faculty based university serving a student population of 2,768  to a college focused university serving  over 36,000 currently. To attain this level of educational progress has been no small feat.

Catholic university

The Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA), like most other universities, started in a modest way. It commenced as a graduate school of theology known as the Catholic Higher Institute of Eastern Africa (CHIEA).

The Institute (CHIEA) was founded in 1984 by the regional ecclesiastical authority known as the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences of Eastern Africa (AMECEA). Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia are the member countries of AMECEA.

On 2 May 1984, CHIEA was authorized by the Congregation for Catholic Education, Vatican City (cf. Prot. N. 821/80/34), to offer two-year Licentiate/MA programmes in Theology. On 3 September of the same year, it was officially inaugurated by Rt Rev. Bishop Madaldo Mazombwe, the then Chairman of AMECEA.

On 18 August 1985, it was formally opened by Pope John Paul II. In 1986, the Graduate School of Theology started negotiations with the Commission for Higher Education in Kenya towards the establishment of the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA).

In 1989, the Institute obtained the “Letter of Interim Authority” as the first step towards its establishment as a private university. After three years of intensive negotiations between the Authority of the Graduate School of Theology (CHIEA) and the Commission for Higher Education, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences was established. The climax of the negotiations was a granting of the Civil Charter to CHIEA on 3 November 1992. This marked the birth of the university as a private institution.

In 2002, the Faculties of Science and Commerce were established. Then in 2003, the Center for Social Justice & ethics was established.
