2022 Form One Placement and Admission- Joining Instructions: Ministry of Education Releases New Circular with Tougher Guidelines to School Principals Regarding 2022 Form 1 Placement
MoE Issues New Directive Regarding 2022 New Form 1 Placement/ Joining Instructions
The Ministry of Education (MoE) has released a circular on Form 1 placement directing all Heads of Institutions (HOIs) of secondary schools to ensure they have updated and uploaded school joining instructions.
The directive is intended to ensure that all letters of admission of all secondary schools have been updated with the latest fees structure, medical forms, personal items and any other information contained in the letters of admission.
Many schools have been able to update their fees structure in line with the guidelines on fees structure provided that the Ministry of Education have provided but have not updated the same on their school joining instructions.
The current Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates are set to sit for their national examinations next week between 7th and 9th of March, 2022. After this their papers will undergo marking and results will be released a short while after that. Form 1 placement will then follow.
Below is the MoE Circular on Updating of 2022 Form 1 Placement preparation.

RE: 2022 FORM 1 PLACEMENT PREPARATION – UPLOADING AND UPDATING SCHOOLS JOINING INSTRUCTIONS
As you are aware the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education Examination will be offered from 7th to 9th March, 2022. Soon after the results of the examination, the Ministry will embark on the form one placement exercise where all eligible candidates will be placed in secondary schools
School Principals are required to update their schools joining instructions using the link provided in the email forwarding this circular. The email should therefore be forwarded to school’s email address for the link to be effective. Those schools that are in the National, Extra County and County categories and do not have their joining instructions online should be in word except for the school logo. Sub-county schools will not be expected to upload their joining instruction since the selected students come from around their localities and can pick a hard copy from the schools.
The purpose of this letter is to ask you to cascade this information to Public Secondary Schools in your jurisdiction. Let this exercise be completed by 18th March 2022.
