The sub-county of Bukakata has approximately 7,000 children under the age of 18 of whom approx 1600 are orphans. Currently about 50% of young people leaving primary school in Masaka district go on to secondary school, however the average for the Bukakata sub county is only 11%.
There is only one other secondary school in the sub county.
Our secondary school opened on the 4th February 2013 with 2 classes Senior 1 & 2 (UK equivalent Years 8 & 9, USA 7th & 8th Grade) of approx 45 pupils in each class. We have now expanded to 4 classes and offer the Ugandan O Level Exam sylabus.
In Uganda secondary education comprises 4 years Senior 1 to 4 then pupils take O-Level Exams, in 2016 our first group of pupils took their exams at our school and did very well, all passed and or school ranked very well in the country.
Following O Level exams pupils can then go on for a further 2 years and then take A Level exams, we do not currently offer this at our school but we have plans to do so in the future. Some of our pupils who do very well at O Level exams at brought to Masaka to continue their studies.
