Message from Principal

I have had the privilege to lead and serve FK secondary school since 2021. When I arrived, we had a tight community of 60 students, 10 teachers and few support staff along with a dedicated group of parents who wanted to have an opportunity to collaborate to make a great school. Two years later, our campus has grown to twice the number of students and staff. We are still a tight knit community, bound by our vision: to provide a high quality British-based education within a safe, secure and caring environment, enabling each pupil to achieve their potential. Of the many Cambridge based schools in Dar es Salaam, we take pride in our school and community because we are unique in our approach to teaching and learning. We strongly believe that critical thinking has an important role in learning. To that end, we use an inquiry based approach to learn. We encourage students to ask the questions: how and why. Our staff challenges students to apply knowledge they’ve learned across disciplines and apply it to real world situations. It is through this approach we cultivate students who are responsible, innovative, reflective, engaged and confident students.

In secondary school, students should expect to……….

  • Find learning fun and enjoyable and to look forward to coming to school with enthusiasm and a clear sense of purpose.
  • Be academically ambitious, enjoy the intellectual satisfaction of success and take pride in their achievements and have high standards of behaviour and discipline.
  • Experience a variety of traditional and modern learning methods including inquiry-based education and use of technology in the classroom.
  • Study a rigorous, truly international curriculum which is broad and challenging, aimed at stimulating critical thinking, analytical thought and an enjoyment of learning.
  • Have regular assessments and feedback so they can have their effort, progress and achievements valued and recognised and so build confidence and also receive the support they need to constantly improve in weaker areas.
  • Receive a balanced 21st-century education and broaden their range of skills to compliment academic subjects with art, music, sport and drama.
  • Develop a truly international outlook and be global citizens by appreciating issues that are of global concern.
  • Develop their leadership skills, interpersonal & communication skills and spirit of adventure and teamwork.

Nurturing Success in an International Community

Here at FK Secondary, we aim to meet the intellectual, physical, creative and emotional needs of each child in a supportive international community. We believe the ultimate measure of a school’s achievement is in the quality of experience a student has during their time at the school and whether they have been provided with the very best chance of success after leaving it.
