Buloba Royal College

Buloba Royal College in the village of Kapeeka, 30 km from Kampala, is a private, state-approved mixed day and boarding school offering a wide range of subjects for our children. Subjects taught include English, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geography, history, accounting, literature, French, computer science and art.

There is also a lot of emphasis on keeping students mentally and physically fit and healthy. There is a wide range of sports, music, drama and dance. The children can play indoor games such as Ludo, Draft, Scrabble, chess and table tennis, and outdoor sports include soccer, netball, volleyball, swimming, badminton, tennis and athletics.

Starting in the 2023 school year, there will be changes in the curriculum for Secondary Schools, thus also for Buloba College. In a nutshell, a Secondary School will now offer a competency-based curriculum which, in addition to compulsory subjects such as English, mathematics, science, etc., will also include compulsory practical electives such as agriculture, art and design, woodworking and metalworking, nutrition and food technology or foreign languages. The reason and advantages of this school reform in Uganda are that after the six years at a secondary school, students will have completed their schooling and at the same time acquired a practical skill that matches their potential and abilities! These skills are evidenced by the certificates acquired, they are recognized on the labor market and enable young people to finance their own lives directly after graduation.

The school has about 700 students and well-trained teachers. The school offers a solid all-round education. A big plus of this school is that the best students can apply to the government for a scholarship to a university.

The sponsorship fee for a child at Buloba College is 40€ per month and the school uniform has to be paid by the child.
