Key Stage 4 covers years 10 and 11. It marks an important time in a student’s education, as in many countries, it’s the last two years of compulsory school. At our high school , we help our students make the academic choices and prepare for the IGCSE exams that will give them access to top universities and other future goals.
Parents are sometimes uncertain when comparing the Kenyan KCPE/KCSE system to the British system. This confusion is not helped by the fact that at Brookhouse we follow a northern hemisphere academic year, from September to July, while the Kenyan system runs from January to December.
Most students who join our homeschooling program from the Kenyan system do so either after their KCPE or the KCSE examinations. Students joining us after KCPE would typically enter Year 9 depending on their KCPE total marks.
After KCSE examinations students can join Year 12 but we typically require an average C+ grade or above. These students will have missed a term (because our school year begins in September), but our teachers are used to helping students catch up. Experience has shown that these students can go on to achieve outstanding A-level results.
If a student achieves 5 good C grade passes at IGCSE LEVEL they can then go on to study for the Advanced Level General Certificate of Education (A-levels) which are considered a gold standard for entry to universities worldwide
