Starehe Boys’ Centre accepts 256 pupils per year, into seven classes of 36 students each.
All applications are considered by the Admission team, comprising:
The criteria for Admission to Form I are:
• All candidates must be aged 16 or under, and make Starehe their first choice of National Secondary School
• All candidates must complete the official Form I application form, and return it to Starehe by 31st July of the year they are sitting their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams – and they must go on to gain a good KCPE pass
• Candidates seeking a free place must also have their family and home circumstances verified by their District Officer or local Chief, and a Minister of Religion, such as a Priest or Imam
30% of places are for fee-paying students, who may choose to board – depending on vacancies.
Boys are also graded according to age, from the highest priority of Grade 8 at 13 years, to the lowest of Grade 5 at 16 years.
After the KCPE marking in November, individual applications are further considered by the Admissions team – with much discussion and debate before final agreement is reached.
Unfortunately, due to the multi-storey nature of the school dormitories, it is not currently possible to accept boys with a severe physical disability.
