On 31 January 2018, the class of Form 4 2018 were in school to give thanks for the good performance in last year’s KCSE examinations.

Families of the Form 4 class of 2018 joined the whole school at 11:40 am for Mass in the courtyard in front of the library facing the form 4 class rooms.

After the Mass, they had lunch with staff members. Speeches of thanksgiving followed with some exchange of gifts and farewell.

To the form 4 class of 2018. Congratulations! and we wish you success in life.

The 2018 KCSE results were released on Friday, 21st December 2018. Strathmore School presented 84 candidates who registered 9.988 points (a performance index of 72.28) to emerge the best school nationally.

It was not only in academics where they have had a shining star. The 2018 class have proved themselves to be all round students. They have been good practically everywhere from the sports fields to extracurricular activities. From selfless service to the community to upholding an impeccable discipline record as a Form 4 class.
They had the highest number of performers in the 2018 school’s annual talent show. They excelled in basketball, soccer and rugby.

They played a key role in raking in trophies in 2017 music festivals where the school clinched the best private schools trophy at Masinde Muliro University. In 2018 the highlight was the quartet composed of 4 Form 4 boys who won the Quartet category and performed during the winners gala at Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri.
The Strathmore School Class of 2018 becomes the 2nd 8-4-4 Class to come top in the country after the Class of 2001.
Congratulations to Class of 2018!

The release of the 2016 KCSE results late last year generated a lot of interest. These were the most credible national examinations results in a long time. The highlights of the results were the reduced number of students who managed to score the aggregate A Grade and the decline in performance in a number of subjects including English, math and chemistry.

Despite all these odds, Strathmore School emerged the top school in the country in three subjects: math, English and French. This success was undoubtedly the fruit of the hard work of the candidates with the support of the parents and teachers who generously gave themselves.

The firm foundation that our students receive in Form 1 and 2 in English especially by inculcating the reading culture through the reading of English classics is largely responsible for the good performance in the subject. As any good teacher of English will tell you, success in productive skills in language: Speaking and writing is heavily dependent on receptive skills: reading and listening. The school’s investment in IT in the classrooms has also gone a long way in improving the teaching of languages. Students can now watch videos on speaking skills, oral literature and set books in class. This has contributed in the enhanced performance in English and French in the national exams.

For a long time now, Strathmore has been the top school in mathematics in KCSE examinations. This culture of excellence in mathematics has been maintained through the shaping of the attitudes of the students. The teachers of math have continuously inflamed the students with their passion for the subject. Even the students who might have joined the school with a defeatist attitude towards the subject have been transformed over time. Of course, this has been complemented with a lot of hard work on the part of the teachers and the students.

We cannot take this success for granted. We wish to thank the parents of these candidates for the support they gave their sons to realise these good results. Being a day school, Strathmore heavily relies on the support of the parents in ensuring that the students keep disciplined work habits at home, in ensuring that the students report to school on time and also by ensuring that the students welfare is generally well taken care of. Our parents have never disappointed us!

We also wish to thank the teachers who handled this class at all levels, right from Standard 1, for their gallant efforts. They did not labour in vain. And of course to the 2016 candidates for proving yet again that discipline, academic honesty and hard work pays.

We cannot forget the Ministry of Education led by Dr. Fred Matiangi and the Kenya National Examinations Council led by Prof. Magoha, himself a past student and past parent of Strathmore, for restoring integrity in our National examinations and giving hope to millions of Kenyan youth!

We wish our 2016 candidates and their families the best of luck as they move on to their next phase in life. You can count on our prayers and good will.
