EducAid's Lumley Secondary School was the first EducAid School- with classes operating from the veranda of a private rented house in 2000. The school has been operating in its own building since 2005 and in this school year we now provide values-led schooling to over 200 secondary students (131 girls), with 19 staff (4 female) and more than 100 local people involved in the nearby community.
Lumley is one of EducAid's model schools making great impact in academic excellence, gender equality and engaging student voice.
Many activities are also held across the school - including various environmental projects (beach clean ups, plastic reduction and collection, tree planting and climate change awareness), WASH projects and more!
Lumley students, year after year, also receive some of the best exam results in the country despite many coming from backgrounds which present a multitude of challenges.
