What you need to know:
- Within our graduating Year 11 class who studied IGCSEs; 79% of examinations were Grade C or above, and 27% of all examinations taken were A*-A. We are so proud of their hard work (and don’t forget, globally, this year’s examination grades went back to pre-covid levels so those A* and As were harder to get!)

I have taught for many years, and I think I still get more nervous than the students on results day. The buildup and anticipation waiting for the day to arrive and then the time that you can log on and then you keep refreshing until... there they are... and for our students yet again, there was much to celebrate.
Within our graduating Year 11 class who studied IGCSEs; 79% of examinations were Grade C or above, and 27% of all examinations taken were A*-A. We are so proud of their hard work (and don’t forget, globally, this year’s examination grades went back to pre-covid levels so those A* and As were harder to get!)
We are just as proud of those students who found learning challenging. The effort and determination they put into their studies and their achievements have not gone unnoticed.
The students’ success means that most of our students are staying with us to study A Levels and BTEC Level 3 and we continue to watch these young adults flourish.
Our A Level students’ results were AMAZING! 95% of all grades were A*-C, with 28% of grades being A*-A. A Level students study subjects ranging from science through the arts, and they are performing well in all areas.
Our Level 3 BTEC students were beyond AMAZING! 85% of all grades were A*-A. We offer BTECs in Business, Creative Media, Sport, Hospitality, Engineering, Performing Arts, Music, and Art. 100% of our students gain offers from universities around the world.
To foster comprehensive growth in children, we recognize the importance of striking a balance both inside and outside the classroom. From the early years through the sixth form, we offer a diverse array of sporting activities, including athletics, football, basketball, netball, volleyball, and swimming. Remarkably, our students have consistently demonstrated exceptional prowess in sports, garnering recognition both at the local and international levels. Several of our outstanding students have proudly represented our country in various sports. For instance, Mbatian Sikar achieved the remarkable distinction of being the only Tanzanian boy selected to participate in the prestigious Basketball Without Borders FIBA/NBA camp held in Egypt.
In addition to our commitment to athletic excellence, we organise enriching international experiences, such as basketball tournaments in Dallas and Dubai, as well as football camps hosted at renowned institutions like Ardingly College in the UK. In addition, both our girls’ and boys’ football teams are set to embark on an exciting journey to Barcelona during the upcoming October half-term, where they will proudly represent our school in a prestigious international school’s World Cup tournament.
Regionally, we benefit from our affiliation with the Braeburn group of schools, which organises annual sporting events, including the highly anticipated Inter Braeburn Swimming Gala and Kasarani Athletics held in Nairobi. At the local level, our institution proudly holds the title of reigning basketball champions, a testament to our dedication to sports.
Furthermore, we host and manage the popular Friday Night Lights basketball and football events, which have gained widespread popularity, uniting local teams, coaches, and the community at large. These events provide an exceptional opportunity for the entire community to come together, fostering a sense of unity while engaging in meaningful and fun-filled activities.
