Mission & Vision
Greensteds will deliver the highest standard of education for students from Kenya and students of other nationalities. It is our vision to provide a complete education which modern parents expect and feel is essential to prepare young men and women of vision and integrity who will be of service to their fellow human beings.
Greensteds International School is a co-educational day and boarding school which provides an outstanding education based on an adapted form of the National Curriculum of England from Reception to ‘A’ level.
This is achieved in a friendly family atmosphere that nurtures a community feeling where the emotional, physical, creative and intellectual needs of all students are met within an international community.
- A smooth transition from Junior to Secondary education
- A team of highly professional and dedicated teachers to inspire a lifelong love of learning and to stimulate intellectual curiosity; promote a culture of creativity; develop and nurture critical thinkers, problem solvers, decision makers, responsible risk takers and effective communicators.
- A broad based, dynamic and balanced curriculum where commitment to extra curricular activities is seen as equally important as academic achievement.
- Challenging opportunities for learning, both in, and out of the classroom, creating self assured, focused, disciplined, well-balanced and enterprising young men and women, ready to take their place and to make their mark in modern society.
- Traditional values such as courtesy, honesty, tolerance and mutual respect are taught in a structured, purposeful manner within the context of a friendly and homely international community.
- Individual attention within small class sizes to maximise opportunities for a variety of teaching and learning styles.
- An environment where close and effective partnerships between teachers, support staff, parents ensure that every child admitted will benefit from the education on offer.
- We offer a safe and nurturing community where diversity is celebrated and traditional values such as tolerance and mutual respect are practiced.
