CIS & IAPS - What Is the Aim of These Organisations?

The Council of International Schools (CIS) is an association of international schools from across the world. Schools gain accreditation by achieving the highest standards in learning and processes to deliver a world-class international education to pupils.

The Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS) is a UK-based organisation designed to ensure that a high-quality learning environment is maintained at the Preparatory School level.


Why Did Brookhouse Seek Accreditation?

Any school can tell parents and the broader community that it offers outstanding education. However, we want external and independent agencies to conduct inspections and evaluate our practices. School inspections enable us to demonstrate our efficacy in providing quality educational opportunities for the young people in our care.

As an Accredited School, we are:

  • Devoted to our mission
  • Accepting of objective assessment
  • Constantly seeking to improve
  • Student-orientated
  • Planning for the future


Brookhouse Achieved Accredited Status By:

  • Undergoing preliminary visits to determine readiness
  • Completing rigorous self-studies
  • Hosting teams of professional evaluators
  • Meeting the standards for accreditation
  • The friendly, student-centred atmosphere
  • Pervasive evidence of the School striving for excellence
  • Our teachers' commitment and loyalty to the students
  • The management's vision in developing the School so successfully
  • An attractive, spacious, safe, secure and clean school environment
  • Our pastoral systems and extra-curricular programme

A CIS inspection is exceptionally rigorous and assesses each area of school life. IAPS inspections provide a focused opportunity for the Preparatory section of the School to undergo a rigorous self-study, followed by an accreditation visit.

Accreditation Has Value

Brookhouse is accredited by CIS and IAPS, providing parents with assurance regarding our education. In addition to undergoing rigorous self-assessment, the School has been evaluated by a team of experienced professionals, meets high academic and professional standards, and is subject to regular visits and monitoring by external agencies.

The School is registered with the Kenyan Ministry of Education. It is also fully accredited by the AQA, Edexcel and Cambridge International Examination (CIE) Boards, all of whom oversee the delivery of our UK Curriculum provision.
