The school was started in 1997 but was formally registered in 2004 with registration number GP/A/2438/2004. The community donated a special plot to both Chepkoilel Secondary School and Chepkoilel North Primary School on which sat the house and other structures left by a former white settler. The plot was shared between the two schools on almost 50:50 basis with the secondary school getting a slightly bigger portion. The school inherited the farm house and three farm stores which were renovated and converted into classrooms. A room in the house was initially used as a classroom to accommodate the first batch of form one students. The house has since served as an administration block, girls’ dormitory, staffroom, principal’s office, deputy principal’s office, accounts office, chaplain’s office and food store.
The community later put up a dormitory for boys, a classroom, boys’ and girls’ toilets, teachers’ toilets, teachers’ house and a laboratory. The laboratory was constructed with the help of LATF and harambee proceeds. A recently completed dining hall was funded by the LATF and CDF. It does not have furniture. Students take their meals from inside while standing. The roof of the administration block was refurbished by CDF.
The school is a single stream mixed day/boarding school. It school has the potential to expand its capacity if funds are made available. The enrolment has been improving in subsequent years. The current form two class, which has an enrolment of over 60 students, is learning in the dining hall due to the big number. The management of the school had decided to receive any student seeking a form one place without turning them away on the basis of KCPE performance resulting in the big enrolment. The school absorbed only 45 form one students this year due to lack of space.
