Kenya High Schools have created more than one million Form One places in readiness for a massive enrolment in January.
The slots in both public and private secondary schools will be more than enough for the 993,000 candidates who sat the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education this year and have been specifically created to support the free day secondary school programme which will begin in January.
Letters of Form One selection are posted on the ministry’s website and schools can print them out.
A circular to all principals from Dr Kipsang’ said candidates joining boarding schools will get their admission details on the ministry’s website.
Of the candidates to be selected, 498,775 are boys and 494,943 girls. All candidates who scored 400 marks and above will be admitted to national schools, irrespective of whether they were in private or public schools.
