CHAPEL
Patron: Rev Ndubai
Chapel Captain: Samson Muchiri

This is one of the bodies that keep the AHS. It organizes hospital visits which involve community services rendered to the sick and needy. On daily basis it organizes morning devotions since that’s where AHS starts its day. During second term each year, it organizes challenges weekends inviting other schools where they fellowship together. On termly basis the department arranges for C.U rallies inviting other schools in the region.
Having been founded by Christian missionaries, most notable of which was Revd Dr John Arthur, the school holds Christian values with high esteem. The school’s badge is embodied with the cross; students say grace before partaking any meal; daily Chapel Service (except on Saturdays) is compulsory for all Christian students.
However, being a national school that draws students from all over the country, Alliance High School has a small population of non-Christian students, mostly Muslims. These students have the liberty to practise their faith. When the Christian students attend the daily morning chapel service, Muslim students congregate separately to carry out a religious service of their own. Although there is no permanent mosque in the school, there is always a room set aside that serves as a mosque. Due to Islamic Sharia dietary requirements, Muslim students have separate tables in the dining hall.

The art of 'lifting' is a common practice especially among form two and three students. Lifting is the process of one showing their leadership qualities through various ways so as to be considered for various leadership positions especially as prefects.

The Alliance High School community is rich in culture. The form ones take the unpopular tie test before they can be issued with the school’s blue tie. This test serves to educate the freshmen on the school’s history and current affairs at the school. Upon arrival, every form 1 student is assigned a ‘guardian’ who is a form 2 student who will help the new student find his way around the school in the first few weeks.

Over the years, the school has opened and closed its term calendar on Thursdays. The first Saturday is often marked with a cross-country race. Closing days are characterized by a school dinner on the closing eve, where students are treated to a sumptuous meal and an award ceremony held. The school is then closed early next morning through a final assembly where the students sing the dismissal hymn, ``Lord dismiss us with thy blessing.``

Hymn practice

Thursday is a special day at the Alliance High School. On Thursdays, students conduct hymn practice in the chapel, students speak Swahili, fish is served during dinner, among other activities.
The most popular form of entertainment in the school is the Saturday movies. Every Saturday the entertainment committee, consisting of Form 2's and 3's and the entertainment department, consisting of about 5 prefects, organizes and prepares the Saturday Movies plus the Saturday Evening Paper (SEP). School movies held in the school hall are usually charged sh 20. However, the most popular movies are the joint movies that are usually held termly with the Alliance Girls’ School. These used to be held at night but have since been changed to afternoons.
The high school life is fun and exciting. Various platforms like the drama and music competitions provide students with a chance to showcase their talents. The Drama Club organizes the hugest Comic Show of the entire year called ``Span One`` where students simulate the Monday morning School Assembly and try to imitate their teachers. The School Choir also organizes the Music Night which features presentations not only from the choir but also dances from all the communities in the country
