Secondary School Program
Consolata Secondary School
Consolata Secondary school follows the 8-4-4 system of Education and children are prepared for the K.C.S.E. (Kenya Certificate of secondary Education).
- In the secondary, we take care of adolescence preparing them for higher education, vocational training and adulthood. The curriculum contains a well-balanced introduction to a wide range of subjects and is later divided into a group of core subjects that are taken by all students, and another group of subjects from which each student must make a choice. Being Science based i.e. all students do all the three science subjects.
- English, Kiswahili, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geography are all compulsory from Form I to IV. OPTIONAL SUBJECTS:-History (Form I & II) C.R.E. (From I to III), Computer studies, Business Studies (Form I to IV): At the end of Form II, students make the choice of their optional subjects (choosing only one either Computer or Business Studies).
- In the secondary school, the intellectual demands are greater than in the primary level as students gear themselves for KCSE. The school therefore takes sufficient care with well laid down routine of unit tests, random tests, common tests and end of term examinations which apart from deepening their knowledge of various subjects, help them to learn the techniques of answering questions.

The pioneers sat K.C.S.E in 2000 and achieved an average grade of 6.5 – C and stood 24th position out of 89 schools in Nairobi, and 250/2607 schools at National Level.
