Subjects That Made Some Schools More Popular During Selection.
It is now clear that secondary schools such as Nanyuki High and Kabianga Boys High School offer technical subjects that are more appealing to students.
Out of the 1.2 million students who took the KCPE exams in 2021, Nanyuki High School received the most applications for Form One (9156,003), followed by Kabianga Boys High School (149,087).
According to Oliver Minishi, principal of Nanyuki High School, the school expanded the curriculum to include technical courses and out-of-class activities to nurture and develop talents.
“We have moved from 15 to 22 subjects within two years. We introduced technical subjects, including aviation, electricity, building and construction, technical drawing, and woodwork among others,” said Mr Minishi.
He also mentioned that filmmaking, karate, and rugby, among other co-curricular activities, had been introduced at the school.

For the second year, more than 150,000 KCPE exam candidates wanted to join Nanyuki School, which had only 480 slots.
Kabianga principal Joash Aloo attributed the high demand to the institution’s expanded curriculum, which saw its capacity increase from five to eleven streams.
“We have a curriculum offering unique subjects like aviation technology, electricity, woodwork and foreign languages. We involve our learners in decision making,” said Aloo.
Kabianga has been the most sought-after national school for the past two years. The school received 142,640 applications for the class of 2020.
Florence Ngangari, principal of Pangani Girls School, attributes the institution’s success to government support and the school’s emphasis is on instilling the right values in the girls. 
According to Ngarari, the school has attracted the highest number of KCPE female candidates in the last five years due to discipline and 100% transition in all classes.
“Dropping out of Pangani Girls because of school fees is something that has never happened. We transit all students from one class to the other and transition from Form Four to the tertiary levels is also high,” said Ms Ngarari.
 According to the principal, 98% of students who took the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) entered universities or other tertiary institutions.

The Kenya Film Commission launched the Kabianga school film club. The film club will inspire creativity in the students and help them choose careers in the film industry.
The school was one of the top ten preferred schools by candidates, with over 118,000 applications received.
This is more than double the available 336 positions for new students.
Ngangari stated that the government has helped fund several projects, including a footbridge that connects the school’s two sides.
“We could not burden our parents with building the footbridge since the highway passes in the middle of the school but the government chipped in,” Ngangari said.
She also stated that the school is committed to ensuring a seamless transition to university.
“Last year we had 93 per cent transition, every year we ensure all children are enrolled in university,” she added.
During the release of the KCSE exams, Pangani Girls has consistently produced top candidates.
According to Pangani Girls’ Chief Principal Florence Ngarari, the school has attracted the highest number of KCPE female candidates in the last five years due to discipline and 100% transition in all classes.
