a word from

Our Director

Guiding children to explore their individuality, expand their opportunities and fulfil their greatest ambitions. 

"I am constantly inspired by our young graduates. They emerge from their time at our international school in Nairobi with a truly 21st Century perspective as young global citizens, ready to contribute to society with a profound sense of justice, tolerance and understanding.

A Brookhouse education is more than just about gaining good grades, sporting prowess or artistic talent. It is about developing young people of good character who are armed with the courage, compassion and humility to really make a difference in the world. 

We look forward to guiding your child on their journey and celebrating their success."
