In 1925, the Late Lord Delamere and the support of Governor Edward Grigg suggested building a senior boys' school. Later they constructed the school on the railway reserve grounds near Kabete.


Sir Herbert Baker was authorized to develop a strategy for the school comparable to Winchester's school in England. Captain B.W.L. Nicholson (who had retired from the Loyal Navy College, Dartmouth) was the first Headmaster of the European Nairobi School. Mrs. Nicholson and Rev. Gillett managed the school garden. Based on the British naval system, Nicholson outlined the dress code and rules of behavior.



In 1929, "Prince of Wales School" was constructed at Kabete with a capacity of 80. However, between the horns of the Royal Impala, the prince's feathers were infused as the school emblem associated with the school motto "TO THE UTTERMOST."


Due to the Second World War, the school population raised high, resulting in the first wooden classrooms in 1938. In June 1940, the Italians joined, and the effects of the world's war fear, including the bombing.

After the military hospital took over the reconstruction in June 1940, students transferred back to the European Nairobi School. However, the whole school resumed to Kabete during the Christmas holiday in 1941. While the Girls' Secondary School took over the space at the European Nairobi School.


European education became mandatory, and enrollment increased. Resulting to new temporary classrooms being constructed. In 1943 and 1944, Nicholson constructed the Serengeti and Athi Houses. In 1945, a sanatorium and a school hall were both completed. In 1948, The Duke of York, currently known as Lenana School's sister school to Nairobi High, was established.


 After Kenya gained independence in 1965, they renamed the school from Prince of Wales School to Nairobi School. The school's name originates from Kenya's capital city, one of the top national schools nationwide.
