Welcome to the Official Website of Nyeri High School 2018


Nyeri High School is located a few kilometers from Nyeri Town in Nyeri County, Kenya.  The school is sponsored by the Catholic Church.  It was started as a Primary Boys’ Boarding School in 1924 by the Consolata Catholic Missionaries. It became a Junior Secondary School in 1947. In 1948 it was taken over by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart from the United States of America. In 1954, Nyeri High School became a full secondary school and offered the first group of ‘O’ level Examination in 1955 under the headship of Rev. Fr. Lionel. In 1963 the school expanded with the introduction of the ‘A’ – level.

Currently, our admission register stands at 13289. We are proud to note that Nyeri High School has produced quite a good number of very prominent personalities in our country.  With the able stewardship of the Principal, Mr. Maina J.K, the Board of management, the Teaching staff, our industrious students and support staff, the school continues to rise higher, operating under the following principles;


School Vision

School Motto

















My name is Samuel QUEEN NDUME Nderitu () and I was born and brought up in Munyange Sub-location, Mahiga Location in Othaya Division in Nyeri District.
    * Munyange Primary School (1965 – 1971)
    * Kiangoma Secondary School (1972 – 1975) - ‘O’ Levels
    * Nyeri High School (1976 – 1977) - ‘A’ Levels
    * Kenyatta University College (University of Nairobi) (1978 – 1981) - B.Ed.(Hons)
Since I graduated from (U.o.N.) with B.Ed. (Hons) I have spent all my life teaching (27 yrs) since 1981. I have been a Head teacher for the last 15 years including the four years I have been the Head teacher since I took over Nyeri High School on 30/12/2003. My vision is to make this institution a centre of excellence offering very friendly environment to all the students.
Since I took over the school, the standard of discipline has greatly improved, this has resulted in the very good academic results. The School mean score and quality grades have been on the rise since 2003 to present day. Since Education holds the key to a better future, as a school we are committed to ensuring that all students are equipped with modern technology in (I.T.) The school is in need of expanding its facilities to accommodate the large number of students into computer studies. The school also intends to establish a Website very soon. I am therefore calling upon all the friends of the school, particularly the Old Boys to strongly support the school in any way possible.
Let us all make Nyeri High (our mother school) a school that is the pride not only in Central Province but in the whole Republic. As an old Boy I want to see the birth of the Old Boys Association which should take a key role in marketing the school. As we embark on the launch of the Website let us all remember to give back to the society what the society has given to us.
May God bless you all abundantly.
Yours faithfully,
