School Profile

Hillcrest is a truly multi-cultural environment, comprising students from over 45 countries, and maintaining an important balance in representing the three major cultural groups in Kenya: African, European and Asian, in equal numbers. The atmosphere is friendly but focused, with discipline based on mutual respect and in accordance with clear rules and guidelines. 

Students entering the Secondary School can look forward to an invigorating curriculum that will broaden their horizons and propel them to achieve their individual potential. Our international teaching staff is dedicated to providing stimulating, diverse lessons that inspire students to find new ways to engage with subjects. Students, aged 13 to 16, form opinions about political, environmental and social issues. Our academic prowess at IGCSE—100% pass-rate—combined with Hillcrest’s exciting co-curriculuar programme and sporting success, is the basis for our outstanding international reputation.

Our desire to help each student excel is reinforced by our intricate support system that provides guidance and reassurance to students as they adapt to adolescence and the added pressure they might experience in a high-achieving academic environment. The professional School Counsellor provides discreet, expert counselling when it’s needed. We maintain strong links with parents and guardians as students make key decisions at this important juncture in their academic career.
