Brookhouse is a co-educational day and boarding school for students aged 2-19, offering an adapted form of the British National Curriculum to Kenyan and international students. The school strives to develop each student's intellectual, emotional, physical and social growth to their full potential.
At Brookhouse we believe that by adopting clearly defined expectations, we will provide the students with the security necessary to achieve their potential within a relaxed but academically rigorous environment.
As a Round Square School Brookhouse believes in:
-Clear expectations in relation to academic performance and standards of behaviour
-Providing the opportunity for our students to learn the skills necessary to further their education and to function successfully in the modern world
-Positive reinforcement which will provide students with the confidence and self-esteem necessary to succeed
-Stimulating intellectual curiosity and a desire to learn
-Fostering tolerance, awareness and respect for others without regard to race, religion, nationality or gender
-Inspiring students to set goals which reflect the utmost of their capabilities
-A curriculum that ensures the holistic educational development of each child
-Parents being active partners in learning through ongoing communication with the school
-Instilling in students an awareness of the environment and the need to preserve it
-Fostering within each child a desire to take responsibility for self-motivation, self-direction, self-discipline and a positive self-image.
Brookhouse is located in a pleasant, leafy environment about 10 kilometres to the south-west of Nairobi city centre.
The school is next to Nairobi National Park. Access from the city is via Langata Road, turning left into Magadi Road. The school is a hundred meters along Magadi Road on the right. The preparatory and secondary schools are separated by playing fields. The swimming pool, gym and indoor sports centre for tennis and basketball are in the southeast corner of the campus. Irrigated playing fields provide a year round playing surface for soccer, rugby, netball, cricket and field hockey. The secondary school is built around three sides of a landscaped quad, where students often study in the shade of mature jacaranda trees. The building complex is a modern two-storey construction with balconies overlooking the quad. Classrooms are purpose-built, with all the facilities one would expect in any major international school, including science and computing laboratories, fine art and music studios, libraries and a state-of-the art performance auditorium. The preparatory school is a delightful “castle” style building with a courtyard adventureland designed to stimulate every child's imagination and desire to learn. The landscaped quad provides play areas that reflect various ecosystems of Kenya. Brookhouse is in a quiet location, conducive to learning and a safe place for our boarders to live.
