NYERI HIGH SCHOOL’S BRIEF HISTORY

Nyeri High School was started as a Primary Boys’ Boarding School by the Consolata Missionaries in the year 1924. Very few centres in the country offered education to African students at that time. Thereafter, the school became a Junior Secondary School in 1947. This was made possible by the increasing number of Africans in the country that yearned for better primary and secondary education.

The school was later taken over by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart from the United States of America in 1948. Despite the change of management .and ownership, the school continued recording exceptional excellence in terms of academics, not only in Nyeri, but across the whole country as well. Later in 1954, Nyeri High School became a full secondary school and offered the first group of ‘O’ level Examination in 1955 under the headship of Rev. Fr. Lionel. The demand for better education facilities kept rising in the region, as well as in the country. In 1963 the school successfully expanded its reach with the introduction of the ‘A’ –level.

Currently, their admission register stands at 13289. Nyeri High School has produced quite a good number of very prominent personalities in our country.
