Teacher/Pupil ratio 1:6 Braeburn Imani International School is situated on the outskirts of Thika town approximately 40km north of Nairobi. It offers quality education for children from playgroup (aged 2) to year 13 (A Levels and BTEC in Business) in a peaceful twenty acre site that is conducive for study. The brand new purpose built school offers excellent facilities from a secure and attractive Early Years unit to specialist High School laboratories for science and ICT. All the classrooms are large, airy and well furnished.
The majority of students are day scholars, with an increasing number joining from the developing residential areas along the Thika Super-highway which is served by the school transport system. The growing number of new quality residential housing estates in the area enable parents to commute and work in Nairobi but live in this less congested suburb. The small personal boarding facility caters for up to 48 students and attracts pupils from further afield, either on a weekly or full boarding basis.
Like all schools in the group, the school follows the National Curriculum of England and Wales, with High School students preparing for IGCSE examinations offered by Cambridge International Examinations in year 11 and A Levels in year 13. Additionally, the school now offers BTEC Extended Diploma in Business Studies to students in years 12 and 13. This vocational qualification can be taken as a standalone qualification equivalent to 3 A-Levels or in combination with A-Levels. All staff are well qualified and enjoy the advantage of being part of a group which emphasises professional development.
Alongside academics, the school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities to meet the interests of most children. Sport is always popular and a wide variety is available. The all round development of the student is actively encouraged and there are many opportunities to get involved in different competitions, activities and events.
The relatively small numbers in the school mean that each pupil receives personal attention in class and around the school. The atmosphere is very positive; the sense that the school has a very bright future is felt by the entire community, making it a very exciting school to be part of.
