Kampala Parents’ School continued its 40 year excellence in the just released Primary Leaving Examinations (UPE), with 178 of its candidates passing in Division One.
The examinations were released on Tuesday morning by Education Minister Jessica Alupo.
Although 478,000 of the 621,000 pupils who sat were from government aided schools under the Universal Primary Schools (UPE) programme, results indicate that parents who invest more in their children’s education in private schools generally register better results.
Only 51,427 candidates (8.6percent) passed in Division One and the bulk of these were from private schools like Kampala Parents. Candidates that score between 4 and 12 points are graded in division one.
“We are very happy with the continued success of the school, ” Ms Daphne Katto, Kampala Parents School head teacher said.
She notes that pupils’ discipline, hard work and team work from staff members on top of support from parents makes the school tick.
Sitting on 14 acres of land in the prime Naguru area, with world class amenities for both classroom and co-curricular activities, the school’s performance is testament to the fact that facilities go a long way in aiding pupils to succeed.
2016 admissions are still going on at the school. You can visit their website www.kampalaparents.com, call 0752711914 or go to the school located at Saddler Way in Naguru.
