St. Anne’s Girls’ Secondary School was started in the year 2010 on a section of St. Anne’s primary school land which was established by Sisters of Mercy. The idea of starting a secondary school started with St. Anne’s primary school committee due to the need to have a secondary that would meet the rising demand for a girl’s school in the locality.
Overall goal of FPE is to build the human capital capacity through investing in children at Diligence for excellence at an early stage. Basic skills not only help individuals but also have an impact on the income growth potential population and public sector performance. FPE is aimed at easing the burden from the parents by abolishing school levies and ensuring equity and accessibility to schools. This rationale was to be realized by St. Anne’s secondary being started to increase access for the girls completing primary education from poor backgrounds, in the eastern region of Nairobi County.
The first two students into the school reported on 9th February 2010 and it soon occupied two blocks of eleven classrooms as a one stream day school. The first principal of the school, Dr. (Mrs.) Beatrice Ndiga- Odiero reported to the school on 20th January 2010 from Limuru Girls and brought with her a wealth of 16 years’ experience. At the beginning she was supported by a capable 14 member board that was inaugurated on the 14th of June 2010 under the chairmanship Dr. Andrew Makanya. Over the years through the competent BOMs and school management the school has grown into a three stream extra county full boarding school with over 600 students.
Currently the Principal of the School is madam Grace Ndirangu assisted by 30 teaching staff, a number of support staff and supported by BOM team which is chaired by Mr. Julius Osoro.
The school is located next to St. Anne’s primary school, Nairobi along Jogoo road next to Uchumi supermarket and our lady of visitation catholic church opposite St. Stephen’s church.
