Welcome to
Keriko Secondary

Who We Are

The school was started in the year 2007 when the parents implemented the long awaited project. The school was initially hosted by Keriko Primary School before they constructed their own premises on the ground set aside for them by the primary school committee.

The main objective of starting the school was to offer education cheaply to the large number of school leavers from Keriko, Sinendet, Naishi, Ndemi and other primary schools who are unable to access education due to the escalating poverty in the area.

The main catchment of the school Keriko Primary, produces over 100 KCPE candidates annually. Most of them end up in the village due to lack of school fees. This therefore was an effort toward poverty alleviation.


The school is currently at a C- mean grade and is in the top ten in Njoro Sub-County and the top public school in Lare division.


The school experienced a tremendous increase in enrolment from 16 students at inception to the current 553 students


In the past 82 students have qualified to join middle level colleges and 13 have qualified to join public universities. Many others have qualified since the school’s inception.
