Private Schools Outshines Public In Top 10 List Of 2021 KCPE Results.
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha announced the results of the recently completed 2021 KCPE exams on Monday.
The CS highlighted the top performers in the examination, which is the second last exam before the education curriculum fully shifts to the Competency-based Curriculum, in his announcement.
Magata Bruce of Gilgil Hills Academy was the top candidate in the 2021 KCPE exam, with 427 points, closely followed by Ashley Kerubo.
The council registered 1,225,507 candidates in 28,316 KCPE examination centers for the 2021 exams.
According to CS Magoha, when compared to public schools, private schools performed spectacularly. They took 8 of the top 10 spots in the country.
Among the first five schools to take the lead were Gilgil Hills Academy, Makini School, Holy Family Misikhu Girls Primary School, Emmanuel Springs, and Kitengela International School.
Last year, public schools outperformed private schools in the 2020 KCPE examination. They took ten of the top fifteen spots in the country.
They fared even better in the top five, producing the first four candidates, with only one candidate from a private school advancing to the fifth position.

“In particular, I am impressed that public schools have shone in the 2020 KCPE, scooping 10 of the top 15 overall slots in the examination,” Magoha said last year.
Private schools have traditionally dominated, while public schools have historically been characterized by poor performance. The development raised the question of why and what caused the shift.
Educators identified three factors that pushed public schools to outperform their private counterparts.
According to Maiyo, the chairman of the Kenya Parents Association, the availability of textbooks means that students can learn even when teachers are not present.
Indimuli Kahi, chairman of the Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association, stated that proper institutional leadership is critical to the production of good grades.
Since 2003, the government has provided each learner with a tuition capitation of Sh1,420, resulting in no cost attendance at a public school.
