History of Thika High School

It is our honour to welcome you to Thika High School.

History: Thika High School was initially known as the "Thogoto Agricutural Teacher Training Centre" which was started in 1951 at Thogoto. It was a kind of farmers training centre but it was also used to train Agriculture teachers giving them an inservice course which led to their upgrading.

In 1956 it was decided that the centre should have a secondary education component and the first secondary school boys were taken. a single stream was planned for a maximum of 300 sudents.

 In 1957 it was agreed that the secondary school at Thogoto should be moved to Thika and the Teacher Training at Thika be moved to Thogoto. The school moved to Thika in January 1959 and the first group of students sat the Cambridge school certificate that year. The name of the school was changed from Thogoto High School to Thika High School.
