About Us


The Vanessa Grant Girls’ School is set in more than fifteen acres of land, just two kilometres outside Rongai. It offers education to 420 girls aged 14 to 18.

‘Education is the most powerful weapon there is to change the world’ (Nelson Mandela)

We aim to provide a rich variety of opportunities and a stimulating environment in which each of the girls we care for develops into a young woman who can think independently and can go on to make a positive impact in their community, in Kenya or anywhere in the world.

A strong curriculum and facilities to match

The Vanessa Grant Girls’ School (VGGS) delivers the Kenyan National Curriculum, with particular emphasis on IT and science, as well as students being encouraged to participate in the arts, drama, music and many sporting activities. This is made possible through the provision of excellent facilities and high-quality teaching.

A Christian life

Besides receiving a superb academic grounding, students will also be helped to develop leadership qualities, a sense of service to the community and a firm Christian faith. This will provide girls attending the VGGS with the right spiritual, moral and social values, which will act as a firm foundation for each girl in an increasingly complex world, when they leave school.
