Short story about The Foothills School.

About us

Set at the scenic foothills of Mt Kipipiri, which forms part of the Aberdare ranges, in Miharati, Kipipiri, Nyandarua County, this new and ultra- modern Secondary School for boys opened on 10 February 2015, with the first intake of Form1 students. Their arrival heralded realization of a dream, and we look forward to nurturing them in line with our mission. The school is designed primarily as a boarding, leadership development centre for boys, while encompassing the national KCSE (8-4-4) curriculum. (I.G.C.S.E will be introduced eventually).

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring.

We Believe

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a regional icon of leadership development for boys, through provision of quality, holistic education. We are inspired by the words of the late Nelson Mandela .. 'After climbing a great hill, one finds there are many more hills to climb.'
At the Foothills School, we will therefore aim to create a respected and sustainable institution that will be identified as a leading centre for development of leaders of the future, in their chosen fields, .......

Our Vision
  • 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

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 boys who see a higher calling in their life, to serve the greater good of society over self, boys that are ready and willing to change that society through positive actions and ideas.

Our Mission
  • Create a conducive environment for talented boys to learn
  • Bring out the competitive spirit in each of the boys
  • 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 :

1. Quality

2. Character

3. Innovation

We wish to inculcate into our boys the need to focus on quality in everything we do, in our learning, living and thinking.

  • 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 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

Life Here

School life at Foothills School is designed to be comfortable for the boys, while encouraging hard work. We aim to provide a homely atmosphere where lasting friendships will be created and nurtured, long after the boys 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. The central theme will revolve around teamwork, to unleash the synergy created by the fusion of the individual talents and capabilities, working together in harmony, to achieve greatness.
