Always Looking Forward

Hillcrest Preparatory School

Students entering the Preparatory 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 follow the British National Curriculum, and work towards the internationally recognised Common Entrance examinations at the end of year 8. Combined with our exciting extra-curricular programme and sporting success, we are sure that Hillcrest Prep School is the number one choice for your child.

Year 8 Wider Horizons Programme

After the Common Entrance exams, the Year 8 students embarked on a 'Wider Horizons' programme where not only did they successfully climb Mount Kenya, but they also had the opportunity to explore many of the delights that Kenya has to offer.

Some of the activities that they were involved in included visiting Brown's Cheese, Nairobi National Park, Kitengela Glass, KAG school in Kibera and the Ngong Hills where they left a legacy of their time at Hillcrest by planting trees. In addition, one of the major highlights was recording their 'Leavers Song' with the help of the Homeboyz radio station and recording studio. More information on this, including a download of the song, can be found here.
