The High School at Brookhouse

The High School at Brookhouse

Our Secondary / High School in Nairobi, Kenya, offers an unrivalled private international education at both Karen and Runda schools, delivering comprehensive British programmes through high-quality academic and learning practices to facilitate student progression to the finest universities worldwide. 

Our robust Secondary / High School curriculum and fully-accredited IGCSE course enrich growing learners with a greater depth of subject material and cross-curricular skills. We aim to open the doors of future study on the A-level and BTEC programmes and set our pupils on a path to achievement.

Curriculum / Programme

NO.1 BRITISH CURRICULUM SCHOOL

High School Curriculum

At our international Secondary / High School in Nairobi, learning commences with one year of Pre-IGCSE study in Year 9, leading to a two-year IGCSE course in Years 10 and 11. Upon successful completion of their IGCSE examinations, Secondary pupils may progress to AS and A2-level courses in Years 12 and 13 before moving forward in their education to universities across the globe.

The range of available Secondary / High School subjects is extensive compared to many other UK-accredited international institutions, demonstrating Brookhouse’s reputation as a No.1 British curriculum school. 

Towards the end of Year 9, students may select their preferred subjects for the IGCSE course to personalise their education to their interests and future study choices. IGCSE subject options include Music, Law, Drama, Psychology, Sociology, Economics and Business Studies.

Parents sometimes need clarification about the benefits of the UK curriculum when making comparisons to the Kenyan KCPE/KCSE system. Confusion may also be present because we follow a northern hemisphere academic year from August to June at Brookhouse, while the Kenyan academic calendar runs from January to December.


Most students who begin their studies at Brookhouse during Secondary / High School, with prior education in the Kenyan system, do so after their KCPE or KCSE examinations. Students joining us after KCPE would typically enter Year 9. However, admission is subject to current requirements in addition to KCPE marks. 

After completing the KCSE examinations, senior Kenyan National Curriculum students can join us in Year 12. In addition to meeting the standard application requirements, transfer students should have attained an average grade of C+ or above for Secondary / High School admission.

Due to our school year commencing in August, following the British academic calendar, previous Kenyan National Curriculum Secondary students will have missed a term of School. 

However, it is common practice for our Secondary / High School teachers to assist new students in familiarising themselves with the pre-IGCSE and IGCSE material. Our specialist experience in student integration has shown that hard-working Secondary / High School pupils thrive and achieve outstanding A-level results.

Our inclusive Secondary / High School department is committed to ensuring learners benefit from the first-class international education at Brookhouse, regardless of the stage at which they join. Graduating KCSE students who wish to prepare for study at UK-based higher education institutions may join the School for the International Foundation Year (IFY) programme as a focused bridging route towards UK university entry.
