Checking of Progress

The best way to keep teachers, parents and pupils in touch with any pupil’s progress is to make sure that their achievements are monitored and clearly recorded. Brickwoods Schools Nanyuki has a very clear, detailed framework which means that everyone involved in a child’s education has a clear map of their progress, helping them to stay on course and attain their personal goals.

Creativity and critical thinking

This curriculum is particularly good at teaching students to think for themselves. Our teachers work hard to encourage open debate and discussion among students, helping them to develop their own beliefs and voice their own opinions with clarity and confidence. Encouraging creativity both in artistic expression and individual thought is another cornerstone of this outstanding system.
