The Kenyan Competency based Curriculum was designed by Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (2017) and has 5 levels which are:

1. Pre-primary Education (2 Years) i.e. Pre-Primary 1 and Pre-Primary 2 commonly known as PP1 and PP2.

2. Lower Primary (Grade 1 to Grade 3) and is expected to run for 3 years

3. Upper Primary (Grade 4 to Grade 6) and is expected to run for 3 years

4. Lower Secondary (Grade 7 to Grade 9) and is expected to run for 3 years

5.Senior School (Grade10 to Grade 12) and is expected to run for 3 years.
