Started in 2001, St. Nicholas Senior School was established to cater for the needs of students who finish class eight in both our primary schools and other schools in Nairobi.
St. Nicholas senior school is located off Ngong Road, on Kabarnet Lane. The school is set on a 5 acre land next to former president’s residence, less than 3 km from the city center. It is about 10 minutes drive from the city center.

Set in a hospitable, serene environment, the school has one supreme objective, to give high quality education to Kenyan and international pupils and students aimed at preparing them for future challenges. The school is committed to ethical, moral and spiritual principles.

Students are prepared for both International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). The academic calendar for KCSE runs from January to November when KCSE exams are undertaken. Academic year for IGCSE students starts and ends in June.

We believe that every child is an achiever and look at each student individually to help them realize their potential.

The school has the following departments headed by highly qualified and dedicated teachers to help in its smooth running:

  • Science Department
  • Humanities Department
  • Teachers’ Welfare Department
  • Exams Department
  • Information Technology Department
  • Registration and Orientation of Students Department


Applicants mus be holders of KCPE certificates or its equivalent with points agreed on by the Board.

Students transferring from other schools should come with the latest academic reports and a leaving certificate. They then take an entrance test.
