Starehe Boys' School

Starehe Boys' Centre provides a safe secure home and high quality education to over 1,100 boys, 70% of whom are from low-income families or have been orphaned.

Set in secure grounds, the boys’ school has modern classroom blocks, a dining hall and small clinic on-site. Dormitories accommodate the students, who study 13 science and arts subjects in a varied, but demanding curriculum.

Extracurricular activities include competitive sports (students compete at local, regional and national levels), music and visual arts, scouting and adventure, academic exchanges and competitions, community projects, and community and voluntary services.

Academic results

254 boys sat the most recent Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education exams. 73% scored grades A or B and 93% qualified for public university entrance and student loans.

This ranked the school 27th out of 9,942 Kenyan secondary schools for exam performance, with one pupil ranked the 14th highest achiever nationally.

These results are on par with the most ‘elite’ Kenyan state-run schools, which cater for far more privileged students.
