    Classified as a public secondary school, Nanyuki High is funded by the National Government and like any other public school, has a Board of Management as well as the ParentsTeachers Association (PTA).

    In recent years, the school has emerged among the top nationally and featured a candidate in the 2019 Top 100 KCSE performers. In 2020, it was ranked the second-best school in Laikipia County.

    The 2021 KCPE top candidate Bruce Magata Mackenzie was admitted to Alliance High School.

    During the event, Magoha also noted that the number of students who sat for the exam outweighed the available slots which will force some schools to admit more students.

    All the candidates were placed in 9,200 public schools. The CS promised that the Ministry of Education will work with the Interior counterpart to ensure that all learners join secondary schools under the 100 per cent transition policy.

    Magoha also noted that 38,797 KCPE candidates were admitted to national schools while 214,960 were placed in extra county schools. 

    Of the Over 1.2 million students who sat for the exams, 258,456 went to county schools, 726,311 in Sub-county schools and 2,045 in special needs schools.
