The school is located in Bushenyi District in south west Uganda, some 200 miles west of Kampala. Bushenyi District consists of nine sub-counties and has a population of 242,000, of which a staggering 60% are under the age of 18. The district has the tenth highest area growing coffee with approx. 7,600 hectares, with secondary crops such as matoke, pineapples and tea also being widely grown.

Lying within the Nyabubaare sub-county, the school is never short of students keen to acquire a secondary education. There are 131 primary schools in the district, but just 11 secondary schools. Children perform well at primary level, with students getting good grades, but they then struggle to find a secondary school nearby.

While there is huge support for education, early marriage is still an issue which prevents girls from getting a secondary education. The gender awareness extracurricular activities held at the school are designed to help improve this over the coming years.

The school has been provided with five classrooms, an admin block and two boarding blocks, along with fresh water and upgraded sanitation.

A recent visit from a Costa Foundation trustee gave a clear impression that the school will be well attended and that the local communities are delighted to have new facilities for their children.

ridge PEAS High School opened its doors for the first time on 4th February 2013, and is our first school in the District of Mitoma, which was carved out of Bushenyi District in 2010.
The sub-county of Nyabubare is a five hour drive South-West of Uganda’s capital, Kampala. Research carried out in 2012 revealed that a huge 568 students were completing primary school with no accessible secondary available, which highlights the need for sub-county’s first secondary school.

Nyabubare’s challenging terrain is a further obstacle to children hoping to make the transition from primary to secondary school. With 11 feeder primary schools within a 7km radius of the school, the demand for secondary education provision is massive.
