Set at the scenic foothills of Mt Kipipiri, which forms part of the Aberdare ranges, in Miharati, Kipipiri, Nyandarua County, this ultra- modern Secondary Boarding School initially admitted only boys since its opening in 10 February 2015. From 2023, it has opened its doors to girls, making it a 'family-centered' school. It is designed primarily as a leadership development center for boys and girls while encompassing the national KCSE(8-4-4), the new CBC, and in the future IGCSE curriculum as well.Other programmes will be introduced later as the school grows.
A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring.
Our vision is to be the icon of leadership development for young adults through provision of quality, holistic education.
We are inspired by our guiding philosophy which identifies the fusion of the two compelling cases of the provision of quality education and developing our future leaders as the motivation and fire that drives our passion and investment in The Foothills School Kipipiri.
We hope to host talented boys and girls from diverse backgrounds and regions.
Reflecting on the words of the late Nelson Mandela... 'After climbing a great hill, one finds there are many more hills to climb.'
- Life skills and competencies to conquer,
- The attitude to confront,
- The resilience to endure,
- The humility to serve, and
- The education to master the context and to surmount the challenges in their future lives and careers, as they climb hill, after hill, after hill, ad infinitum
Our Mission is to develop future generations of leaders for our country and the region. We will seek to develop confident, self-respecting and well-rounded characters who aspire to bring out the best of their God given talents while respecting the rights of others to be different. These will be young leaders who see a higher calling in their life, not just to serve self but the greater good of society, and that are ready and willing to change that society through positive actions and ideas.
- Create a conducive environment for talented boys and girls to learn within a holistic framework in both academic and co-curricular activities
- Bring out the competitive spirit in each of our students
- Prepare the students as future leaders
- Foster the spirit of oneness and unity as a school community, and as a country.
As a leadership development center for boys, our core values, are anchored on three pillars, popularly referred to as QCI :
'Maeistas per humilitatem' in Latin means 'Greatness with humility'. This was selected to emphasize our desire to develop greate, yet humble or down-to-earth leaders, such as Jesus Christ, Prophet Mohamed, Mandela, Gandhi, and Mother Theresa, among others.
- We shall continuously emphasize the need to strive to do the right thing right, first time and all the time, which avoids waste.
- Within this pillar, we will also emphasize the synergies to be derived from teamwork, the importance of collaboration while encouraging competition
- In today’s dynamic world, finding new ways of solving the ever-changing challenges is critical.
The Foothills School hosted their first ever thanksgiving event at the school grounds and it was amazing. This was to celebrate the our first graduates who performed well and also to appreciate them with presents for their work well done.
The Foothills School presented 15 candidates. The school posted a good performance, with an average of 7.67 (B-).
The Foothills School governance is designed to facilitate decision making and participation at all levels, and will have the following organs; The Patron, Board of Governors, Parents and Teachers Association, Management Team, as well as a Student Council.
The Foothills School provides us an opportunity to plant seeds that will eventually create a critical mass of future leaders for our lovely Country.
Leaders who will aspire to do great things for their communities, the organisations they will work in, and the country, while mindful of where everyone else is, down to earth. Leaders who strive to achieve the greater good, not self-glorification. Hence our motto; “maeistas per humilitatem”, or “greatness with humility”.Our Philosophy
School life at Foothills School is designed to be comfortable for our students, while encouraging hard work. We aim to provide a homely atmosphere where lasting friendships will be created and nurtured, long after our students have left school.
We will strive at all times to achieve a fine blend of academic work and leadership development programs, as well as active participation in co-curricular and sporting activities.
