Private Schools Spring Back To Glory In KCPE Results


Private schools seem to have sprung back to top performance in the 2021 KCPE results released by Education CS George Magoha.

Simon Gatheru Principal Bethlehem Academy in Ruiru says that 21 candidates scored over 400 marks with the best candidates scoring 417 marks.

Gatheru says that this earned the school a mean grade of 363 marks and improvement from last year’s 362 marks.

“God has been good to us. We want to thank him so much because amidst all the challenges that we went through since Covid started, we are here to celebrate the good results,” said Gatheru.

“My plea is that let the government be fair and they give us a fair playing field so that the same criteria that will be used during selection for public school candidates should also apply to the private schools candidates. There should be equal selection,” he said.


In Ruai area, Spring of Mercy Primary School also celebrated their stellar performance after recording a mean grade of 353 marks.

The school’s director says that the good performance was out of the hard work from both the pupils and the teachers.

Naomi Ng’endo Karechu from Spring of Mercy who scored 414 marks thanked her parents, teachers and even the school’s director for the great support.

Karechu who wants to be a neurosurgeon in future says that she wants to join her dream school Kenya High.
