Starehe Girls' School

Starehe girls’ school was founded in 2005 and has quickly achieved the same success as its boys’ school counterpart.

The school provides a safe secure home and high quality education to 720 girls, 67% of whom are from low-income families or have been orphaned. They study 13 arts and science subjects, supported by teachers and pastoral staff.

The girls are housed in dormitories set in secure grounds and the school has its own classroom blocks and catering facilities. New Physics and healthcare buildings have recently been completed, with a new block of 8 classrooms to follow shortly.

Extracurricular activities, some of which are shared with the boys, extend to competitive sports, music and the arts, community volunteering, exchanges, scouting and national / international academic competitions.

Academic results

115 girls sat the most recent Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education exam. 89% qualified for public university entrance and student loans, with the remaining girls gaining entrance to college diploma courses.

The girls’ school also triumphed in the prestigious Zayed Future Energy Prize, winning the trophy while competing against over 1500 High Schools from around the world.
