Boarding Life and Activities
Year 13 students enjoy a purpose-built boarding house, designed specifically for the College students. Students have single bedrooms in a series of linked cluster flats. There are six students in each flat, with shared lounge, kitchen and bathroom facilities. Each flat has a patio or balcony with outstanding views over the Rift Valley.
Year 12 students enjoy similarly impressive facilities within the Senior School boarding houses. This provides them with a conducive working environment while offering opportunities for them to mentor and lead students in Years 9-11.
The flats benefit from access to a shared communal common room, with excellent facilities, including Internet access, satellite television and office areas. Resident houseparents encourage the development of independent study habits required for A Level study and beyond.
A College Entertainment Committee helps to establish a varied programme of sport, outward bound activities, debates, society meetings and films. College students are given greater freedom than younger students, but much greater levels of responsibility are expected of them.
Year 12 and 13 students have opportunities to participate in activities within a wide variety of programmes; many of which are student-led. Examples of these include the school’s Christian Union, the Round Square Committee, the Charity Committee, the Student Council, the President’s Award Scheme, the East African Model United Nations, the Debating Club, the School Choir and Orchestra, the School production, the School yearbook and the Environment Committee.
