It is 21 Km from Nakuru town along Nakuru/Nyahururu road.

The school is barely 500 meters off tarmac road. Board vehicles going to Kabazi/Subukia from Nakuru town.

Over the last 8 years BUA has provided a wide range of opportunities to pupils to develop intellectually, socially and spiritually. BUA would not have been what it is today without the vision of the Proprietor Mr. John Kamau whose idea was to have the school as mixed. His continued support and encouragement has propelled the school to where it is today.
