About Lukenya I.G.C.S.E

About Us:

Dear Prospective Pupil or Parent,

Welcome to the Lukenya Group’s IGCSE school.

Lukenya Academy British Curriculum is a professionally-run school offering the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), which is the globally-recognised equivalent of the GCSE that pupils in Britain sit for.  We are a fully registered Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) centre.

Lukenya IGCSE is a boarding school that also accepts day scholars.  We are also a co-educational school, which is rare for a predominantly boarding school in Kenya.  It was a deliberate choice to be a mixed gender institution, and we chose this because we wanted pupils to graduate with not only solid grades for further and higher study in Kenyan and abroad, but also with the ability to respect each other.

Our school is located on a large ranch a convenient 35km from Nairobi.  The quiet surroundings make this a great place to study, but also to play and enjoy the whole life of a boarding school from academics to sport, clubs and societies.

Our results are substantially above British National Averages, and we take great pride not only in our students who attain ‘A’ grades, but also those who, entering with low KCPE or equivalent marks, add value to attain grades that will take them further into the studies that they’re interested in.

Lukenya’s British Curriculum is respected in this country, and we are well known to excel both in studies and in co-curricular activities from the President’s Award to St Johns Ambulance to all manner of sports.

We’re further proud of two important aspects of school life: our curriculum, which we’ve fully adapted to cater for Kenyan students, in order to ensure that our version of the British Curriculum is taught through culturally-relevant examples; our discipline, which is extremely good and kept strong by means of increased pupil participation in school matters and by means of honest and efficient communication with parents/guardians.

Pupils always seem to enjoy our friendly school, and to benefit from us.  As you click through these, our web pages, we hope you’ll feel as welcome as we’d make you if you visited us in person!

With all best wishes, and with thanks for your interest,

Stephen Derwent Partington, BA(Hons), MA, MSt (Oxon), PGCE [a.k.a. ‘Mr Steve’]
