To all our friends and well wishers:

The Kenya High School takes this early opportunity to thank you all for the support you gave us during the Endowment fund raising dinner held on 8th August 2014 at the Safari Park Hotel. Your generosity was quite remarkable and we pray that God bless and reward you in abundance so that your goodness may be experienced by many more.

The dinner was one of the activities lined up to build the Endowment kitty and we still appeal to all well wishers to continue support so that we can realize our target.

We would like to inform everyone that The Kenya High School has not appointed any individual or Association to collect funds on its behalf, all donations and contributions should be channelled to the school through bank Account No. 1470261650143 Equity Bank, Kilimani Branch or via M-Pesa Pay Bill 315050. Cheques should be drawn to THE KENYA HIGH SCHOOL ENDOWMENT FUND and sent directly to the school. The official receipt will be issued for all monies received.

We thank you once again.

The Endowment Trustees.

The Kenya High School had its beginnings in 1910 when a co-educational school called the Nairobi European School began in buildings designed for police Barracks. In 1931 the boys were separated from the girls. In 1935, the school was renamed The European Girls Secondary School and had its first Headmistress, Miss Kerby appointed. The buildings consisted partly of temporary wooden huts located on the compound of the present Nairobi Primary school, with whom the secondary school shared the present buildings. Staff housing was scattered in the vicinity of Protectorate Hill. In 1939, the school was renamed The Kenya High School.
