OUR STORY

Educating and enabling girls through education.

Vanessa Grant Girls' School aims 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. 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. 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.

At Vanessa Grant Girls' School, we value: Seeing every pupil and member of staff as an individual with his/her own unique gifts and talents, all of which are worthy of respect. Developing these and giving additional support where necessary. Learning to be of service to others both within and outside the school. Achieving high standards in all aspects of school life through hard work. A commitment to the teachings of Christ. Those who have self respect combined with a respect for others, thus creating a strong team spirit.
