Peponi House Preparatory School
About Peponi House Preparatory School
Peponi House is in Lower Kabete, a lovely green suburb to the north west of Nairobi. We have 11 acres of grounds, so there is plenty of room for the 365 children to play and to grow. Classes are kept to a maximum of 20 across the school, with three classes in all year groups.
The school was rated as “Outstanding” in all respects following a school inspection in February 2018.
During the next academic year, we will see the completion of Phase One of an ambitious plan to rebuild the entire school. Spacious classrooms, a design and computing centre, library, drama studio and multi-purpose hall will allow us to realise our vision for the school, not just in terms of facilities but in terms of curriculum development as well. Phase Two will see the creation of a science block, more classrooms, a new music centre and the creation of outdoor learning areas. This will be an exciting time to be part of an outstanding school.
We follow the British National Curriculum and the Common Entrance syllabus, but there is a distinctly Kenyan feel to what we do. The children are taught Kiswahili from Year 2 and there are field trips to the Rift Valley, Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains. There is an outstanding range of extra-curricular activities in which all children take a very full and active part.
We encourage respect for each other and there is a wonderful mix of children from different cultures and backgrounds. There is a 50/50 gender balance within the school and we also have a very good mix of cultures, faiths and ethnic backgrounds. There are currently over thirty different nationalities within the school.
Peponi House School is a thriving, harmonious community which provides an outstanding quality of education for its pupils.- SIS Inspection Report, February 2018
