Nys Secondary is a fully registered mixed public day secondary school with the ministry of education registration number PU/S/1/9436/2012
It was established in February 2012 through the initiative of commandant NYS College with blessings from the Director General NYS. Following the rapid expansion in enrolment in neighboring public schools especially after the introduction of the free primary education back in 2003, there was need for more space in secondary schools to accommodate the surging numbers.
There is also a high number of KCPE graduates within Gilgil districts majority of whom are drawn from families of uniformed officers both NYS, Kenya Army and ASTU and above all the IDPs children who are mostly affected by the post-election violence. The starting of the school was to take care of the enormous number which could not be left without been taken care of.
Currently the school is two streamed with a student population of 280 students. There are seven teachers posted o the school by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and the rest are employed by the schools Board of Management (BOM). With the already high enrolment its envisaged that next year, the school is likely to have an even high enrolment.
