Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Brookhurst is one of the leading international schools in Kenya, for students aged 5-18 years. Brookhurst is not like other schools and never has been. We believe in shaping the school around the child, where excellence in teaching and coaching comes together with the child at the centre. Our aim is that each individual will be able to unleash their excellence.

Teaching approach of the school

The curriculum takes a more progressive approach where one stage builds to another, emphasis is on development of the whole student, focusing on each student as unique, developing positive relationships (with teachers, peers and parents), focusing on an enabling environment for learning beyond the classroom and a systematic focus on the outcomes and the results of the education. It is due to these numerous benefits that the BNC is becoming the curriculum of choice for many schools worldwide.
