“I believe that it is my responsibility to maintain and to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school. Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.”
Juja Senior School is delighted and honored that you are considering us for your child’s secondary education. As an interested partner in fostering your child’s holistic development, we look forward to working with you through a closer partnership that will help your child achieve the best transformative education. At Juja Senior School, we accept admissions throughout the year based on availability. We conduct an assessment to determine what class your child would be best suited and advise on level of placement.
We offer the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) curriculum from Year 7 to 11. Candidates sit for their IGCSE exams at the end of Year 11.
Students in the lower years (Year 7, 8, and 9) study all the subjects offered. From Year 10, studies become more focused as we prepare our students for their examinations. These include core subjects: Mathematics, English, Science; and selection of other subjects in the Humanities and Technical areas to create a diverse curriculum.
Selection of subjects is vital in the success of our students, and to achieve this our students, teachers and parents work together and select subjects best suited towards that student. We take into consideration the student’s academic ability and their aspirations and possible future careers. The school calendar runs from September to July, divided into 3 terms consisting of 12 weeks each.
Core and Extended Curriculum
To further tailor this curriculum to our students needs, we offer both the Core and Extended curricula. We internally asses each student’s academic abilities, and through consultation with parents decide on curricula that can best support the needs of each student. For students that require extra support, we offer the core curriculum in English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and French. The Extended curriculum is standard curriculum available to students. We encourage and support all of our students to maintain a high academic standard regardless of the student’s ability.
Transition from 8-4-4
Some of the students we enroll in Year 7 and 8 were previously enrolled in the Kenyan 8-4-4 education system. Similarly, we have also enrolled students who have done well in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations into Year 9. We conduct an assessment and determine appropriate placement for each student, ensuring we support their academic needs and develop their abilities.
Aviation at Juja
Through our partnership with the Kenya School of Flying, we have presented our students with an expansive platform to pursue careers in the aviation industry as pilots. We encourage our students with a passion for flying to pursue professional careers in aviation while simultaneously receiving their secondary school education.
