"To the Utmost"
I am delighted to have this opportunity to welcome you to Peponi School. I hope to give you an impression of our School and all that it offers to our children.
I strongly believe that having the opportunity to educate other peoples’ children is a rare privilege that brings with it a responsibility to provide the best all round education, preparing our pupils for the challenges of an ever-changing world. Peponi School sets exacting standards and the expectations of our pupils are purposefully high.
Our ever-changing world is full of challenges and opportunities and Peponi is the school that provides a holistic education to prepare our pupils for what lies ahead in the short term and the long. Our pupils are educated to believe in themselves, to be inquisitive, to be resilient and to be ambitious. We praise high-achievers in any aspect of their life, whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field or on the stage; we aim to bring out the very best of each and every pupil.
We are a genuine multi-faith and multi-racial school where pupils respect each other and value the differences that contribute to our unique society. We are located in a spacious rural campus just outside Nairobi, and are one of East Africa’s leading independent coeducational schools, for both boarding and day school pupils. Traditional and innovative educational methods, first-class facilities and the advantages offered by a small school community all combine to provide a uniquely rounded learning experience for our pupils.
I hope you will take the time to visit our wonderful School, so that you can see first-hand why we have a reputation for being one of the most successful, beautiful and well-equipped schools in East Africa.
I am confident that you will sense our commitment to provide a rigorous approach to learning alongside our nurturing pastoral care. We want to encourage our pupils to grow in depth and think beyond themselves commencing their journey of becoming a hard working and honourable member of our world.- Mark Durston, Peponi School Headmaster
