Strathmore believes in the 3 facets of education: Parents, Teachers and Students. When Strathmore School admits new students; we open the gates for the families of the students. We are happy to have a new lot of parents who have joined us from the admission classes of Grade 1, Grade 7 and Form 1.

We wish all our new parents all the best and a warm welcome to the Strathmore School family!

In the last few years, the school has intensified its efforts in nurturing talent in extracurricular activities.

This has seen a steady rise in the number of clubs and societies in the school. The introduction of the Competency  Based Curriculum (CBC) has necessitated a paradigm shift in pedagogy, making learning more student-centered, practical and hands-on. In view of the above, the school has come up with the Activity Block Project  aimed at addressing the growing need for facilities to accommodate the needs identified.

On Saturday 18th February 2023 we had the chance to host the historic Strathmore@60 Touch Rugby tournament which included teams from the Strathmore School Rugby alumni and Strathmore University Rugby Alumni and fraternity. The Occasion had a total of 16 teams which participated in the tournament.

Past students from the different years came together to form teams and had a chance to have lots of fun and remember the ‘good old days in school’. The tournament started in the morning at 9am and by 4pm teams were awarded for performance and participation. It was a memorable and fun day for our Alumni, current students and the University’s Alumni.

We hope this was the start to more of the Alumni interactions with the current students.

We regret to inform you that Cornel Wafula Wabwile, one of our students, departed this life into God’s presence, on Wednesday, 18th January 2023 after a short illness.
He was admitted to Coptic Hospital and despite gallant efforts by the doctors to save his life, he succumbed to illness.
The Strathmore School family, wish to convey deepest condolences to the parents and the family on this great loss.

Cornel has been an icon of hope, a brilliant and hardworking student who has heroically overcome many challenges, especially those related to his condition. He has maintained an impressive academic and discipline track record and at the time of his demise had met the promotion requirements to Form 4. He will remain a role model to his classmates and to many others who knew him.

We appreciate that the loss of Cornel is a big blow to the school community, especially to his classmates.

All of us are invited to pray for the repose of Cornel’s soul and for his family in this period of sorrow.

May Cornels soul rest in Eternal Peace.

Our very own Deputy Principal for Innovation and Partnerships Dr. Alfred Matthews Odisa received his Doctoral Degree in Education Administration from University of Nairobi on the 23rd September 2022.

Dr. Odisa teaches Kiswahili in the Secondary Section and has been very instrumental in mapping out for us the CBC curriculum in the school.

Dr. Odisa is also ensuring that the school is reaching out to the community to assist in different projects.
We warmly congratulate to Dr. Odisa on this great milestone!

St. Charles Lwanga Secondary School and Children’s Centre is a charitable facility that hosts over 200 children (both boys and girls) mainly from the streets and low income families in areas like Kayole, Kibra, Dandora and Mathare in Nairobi. The institution was founded in 2010 by Brothers of St. Charles Lwanga whose compassion and love for children was moved by the suffering of the youths in Nairobi and its environs. The school is located in Ruai, 40kms from the CBD on the Nairobi-Kagundo Road.

St. Charles Lwanga Secondary School and Children’s Centre is a place where orphaned, homeless and abandoned children are rescued and provided with shelter, food and a place to call home.

Today the Centre is offering high school curriculum and the children are provided with a safe place to live in, a reliable source of nutritious food and the opportunity to gain high school education with the possibility of post-secondary education. Brothers who earn no salary find it difficult to meet all these needs.

The Brothers of St. Charles Lwanga have sacrificed a lot. Strathmore School, in solidarity with the Brothers have established the urgent needs of the school. In this regard we have donated text books and staff furniture.

Their immediate need at the moment is to roof a boys’ dormitory that stalled two years ago and to acquire decent desks and chairs for the learners.

We appeal to anyone who can offer physical or financial support to get in touch with us using the contact details found in the CONTACTS SECTION on this website.

May God Bless you for your support!


Strathmore School and the Nairobi Metropolitan Services have partnered to give a face lift to the shoulders of Mzima Springs Road.

In 2021, The Nairobi Metropolitan Services paved the shoulders of the Mzima Springs Road as part of their grand plan to provide major streets in Nairobi with pedestrian walkways.

To supplement these efforts, Strathmore School embarked on the street frontage landscaping aimed at giving a facelift to the shoulders. The lead architect in this project was Wycliffe Nyachwaya (Class of 2001). The project entailed planting of grass, shrubs and palms tress as well as installation of bollards, and waste bins.

The fruits of this partnership is the beautiful garden and walkway that gives a welcoming ambience to all those visiting the school; indeed, this has been a beautiful partnership!
