HC Deb 09 July 1959 vol 608 c144W
64. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what provision is being considered by the Government of Kenya for the introduction of sixth-form work and the Higher School Certificate in their secondary schools.

Mr. J. Amery

The Kenya Government hope to provide by the beginning of 1961 classes for Higher School Certificate in three African schools. Such classes already exist in a number of secondary schools for Europeans and Asians. As yet, there are no Higher School Certificate classes in the Arab secondary schools, but by special arrangement Arab students may attend High School Certificate classes at one Asian school. The existing facilities are already supplemented by Higher School Certificate courses at Makerere College and by post-secondary facilities at the Royal Technical College.
