Braeburn School (Primary and Secondary)
Latitude / Longitude: -1.28808, 36.75854
Braeburn is a large thriving school that caters for over 600 primary age children (from 3 to 12 years) and over two hundred high school students (13-18years). The school has students from more than 80 different countries and cultures, and it is a bright, happy place with excellent, modern facilities.
The curriculum is based on the National Curriculum of England and Wales, culminating in pupils at the high school sitting from 8 to 11 IGCSE's then 3 to 4 A levels. Having said this, Braeburn School also has all the sports and arts programs that one would expect from a privately run International school. The high quality of provision in all aspects of education is guaranteed by accreditation by the international association of primary schools (IAPS) and the Council of International Schools (CIS).
Each department at the school is extremely well resourced including a very strong learning support department. The libraries are very impressive, as is the swimming pool, play equipment, science labs, IT (computer) facilities, and theatres.
This is a school that has a lot to offer. Braeburn has a young dynamic staff, a great social life for students, parents and staff, with an on site internet cafe and even an on-site bar!!! The on-site theatres have been producing Pantomines and plays for over 20 years and until recent years Braeburn used to pride itself on having the largest theatre south of the Sahara!
The Braeburn site on Gitanga Road is the original school which was set up over 30 years ago. Since then, Braeburn has extended its empire to running 12 other schools on campuses in Nairobi (Braeside and Braeburn Garden Estate), Thika, Nanyuki, Mombasa, Kisumu and Arusha (Tanzania), all members of the Braeburn Group of International Schools.
This is an exciting school to be in, and the children here seem relaxed, happy and diverse. Highly recommended!
