How to apply

Although the majority of children join us at Year 9 and Year 12, depending on circumstances and space availability we accept new pupils at times other than September entry.  When family circumstances require this, such as families moving to Kenya from abroad, we ensure children have as easy and seamless a transition as possible.  Registrations for Year 9 are accepted a maximum of two years prior to the September of the year of entry.
