The institution will have a capacity of 1,700 students and will teach the Cambridge Curriculum.

"Our curriculum is based on a progressive educational approach, which prepares children for the 21st century and allows for development of the global competencies required of students,” Jenny Coetzee, managing director of Crawford International Schools Kenya, said in a statement.
