  • All over the world, top government officials and wealthy individuals have always opted to take their children to prestigious schools that are ranked among the best in the world.

    In England for instance, the Harrow School has nurtured children of some of the most powerful government officials including two sons of Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.

    Before pursuing a degree in civil engineering from the University of Exeter, James David Kimoi Moi, the eldest son of the Baringo Senator attended the school. Kimoi is currently the Director of Kongoy Farm which ventures into large-scale potato farming.

    On the other hand, his brother Kigen Moi, an enthusiast of the horseback ball game, polo, also attended the prestigious school. His skills in the exclusive sport have been attributed to the quality of co-curricular studies offered at the institution.

    The school is a prestigious boys boarding secondary school that was founded in 1572 after it was granted a royal charter by Queen Elizabeth I.

    Harrow offers the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) curriculum and charges its students Ksh6.6 annual fees (£14,555 per term) with the amount including tuition and boarding fees.

    Additionally, new students enrolling in the school are charged a non-refundable registration fee of  Ksh54,088  (£350)  and an entry deposit of Ksh463,609 (£3,000).

    Apart from these charges, students from countries such as Kenya are expected to pay extra if one of their parents resides out of the UK.

    "An applicant who is offered and accepts a place at Harrow, and who has at least one parent residing overseas, is asked to pay an additional deposit of Ksh 2.3 million ( £15,000). This sum is refunded in full on his final fee bill," stated the school.

    Despite being famed for its quality in academic studies and world-class infrastructure, the school also offers co-curricular activities such as sports, art, music drama, and photography.

    The UK-based institution also has a department that takes the students through leadership courses and has shaped some of the famous global leaders like the former UK Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru.

    Its leadership courses have seen the school produce seven UK Prime Ministers. This has also attracted other members of royal families from all over the world.

    "Boys experience opportunities for leadership throughout their School career by helping to run extra-curricular programs, by having a position of responsibility, and by carrying out their duties. 

    "All of these activities have service at their core. Every role at Harrow is thought of as a job, not an accolade, an opportunity to serve the community rather than being rewarded by it," the school's website states.
