Headteacher Introduction

On behalf of the students and staff of Braeburn Nanyuki, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. Thank you for showing an interest in our school and I hope the information below provides you with a good insight of our happy and caring school.

In December 2007, the parents and proprietors of the former Podo Preparatory School in Nanyuki       approached the management of Braeburn Schools Limited seeking to enter into a partnership for the development of a Braeburn school in Nanyuki Town. The results…? Well, Braeburn management were all very excited at the prospect and immediately put in place the mechanisms for the establishment of the 10th Braeburn school! Braeburn Nanyuki International School commenced its operations in January 2008 and is located in the serene and beautiful town of Nanyuki. Dwarfed, as it is sandwiched between the magical, formidable presence of Mt. Kenya on the one hand and the plush, green heights of the Aberdare Range on the other, Nanyuki offers a remarkably refreshing environment, its open spaces unspoiled by the clutter and pollution that are more characteristic of larger towns and cities.

In January 2010, the new, purpose-built Braeburn Nanyuki International School welcomed children and families to its own 10-acre site, located in beautifully landscaped gardens at the foot of Mt Kenya. The wood and stone classrooms ensure that our school fits neatly and unobtrusively into our environment and the large windows ensure that the natural light is able to pour in.

Braeburn Nanyuki comprises of an Early Years Foundation Stage as well as a Primary School, offering National Curriculum of England and Wales to children of all nationalities and cultures, in a calm, peaceful and secure learning environment. Our small class sizes ensure that all children are closely monitored to enable them attain their full potential. At Braeburn Nanyuki the atmosphere is a happy one, a welcoming one and a truly caring one, as parents, guardians and staff all contribute each day, and in so many ways, to making learning a journey of discovery through first hand experience. As we aim to maintain the special community touch whose core values of trust, honesty, integrity, support, cooperation and fraternity have a special place in our hearts, we also want to mould and help in the evolution of the quaint school of the yester years into an academic institution that can be rightfully on par with any school of good repute in the country and elsewhere. Our firm commitment is to offer the merits of a well structured British education that is as rigorous as it is broad in an engaging and stimulating learning environment which is safe, orderly and nurturing.

We believe that with the continued, unwavering support of parents and guardians that we have so far received as well as the sustained spirit of teamwork, dedication and hard work of all the staff the future can only be very bright indeed!

So if you are ever in these parts for a visit, are thinking of relocating to this beautiful, calm part of the country or just want to be part of a really vibrant and ambitious school then you can look forward to a very warm, traditional Braeburn welcome at Braeburn Nanyuki International School!

With our very best regards and wishes,

Eva Kioko
