Teacher/Pupil ratio 1:10 Founded in 1979, Braeburn School has undergone significant development and growth during its 35 years to date. Situated on a 14 acre site in the Lavington suburb of Nairobi, the school is conveniently located to serve many of the rapidly developing suburbs of the city. With over 80 nationalities represented within the student population, Braeburn is truly an international school which offers an excellent education to students from Early Years through to A level.
The school is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Council of British International Schools (COBIS), and is enthusiastically ensuring its continued development and commitment to raising the high standards already established. The Primary section of the school is also a long established member of the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS) therefore enjoying significant and particularly vibrant, extra-curricular involvement with other IAPS member schools in Kenya.
Braeburn School prides itself on having established a friendly and welcoming environment where everyone: students, parents and staff, are encouraged to be happy and feel valued. We actively promote an Open Admissions Policy in the Primary and therefore are privileged to enjoy a thriving student body which openly celebrates its diversity and achievement throughout the school. With over 80 teachers on site we also enjoy tremendous diversity and experience within our classrooms. We are fortunate to be able to recruit excellent teachers from Kenya, as well as from much further afield. All our teachers bring passion, energy and enthusiasm to their role and are incredibly committed to supporting the aspirations and achievements of our students both in and out of the classroom. It is worth noting that the High School's examination results have consistently improved year on year; a fitting tribute to the professionalism of our teachers and to the commitment of our students.
