St Andrew’s School EYFS & Key Stage 1 Coordinator Jobs

St Andrew’s, Turi, is one of the most prominent international schools in

Kenya and has an outstanding reputation throughout Africa.

Founded as a Preparatory School for the children of expatriates in 1931, it has grown to comprise both Preparatory and Senior Schools and to welcome children of over 25 nationalities, the majority of whom are now African.

St Andrew’s has a strong Christian foundation and ethos, which define and govern
the nature and work of the School today. While children from all faith backgrounds
are welcome, the School’s Christian character is clearly evident in its underlying
educational philosophy and practice.

The School’s vision is to be the leading school in East Africa, preparing selfdisciplined, confident and compassionate pupils who live and lead with integrity.

It is fully coeducational and boarding, teaches the British curriculum and sends pupils
to universities in the UK, America, Australia and many other parts of the world.

Specifically at the Prep School, the British curriculum is taught from EYFS to Year 6,
and currently Common Entrance in Years 7 to 8. The majority of pupils move from the Prep School to the Senior School, though a significant minority also go on to
leading Independent schools in the UK and South Africa.

St Andrew’s is characterised by the highest professional standards, and offers a vibrant
and industrious community, ensuring excellent professional development within the context of a committed full boarding school.

The School is situated on a beautiful 400-acre site on the western slopes of the Rift
Valley some 200km NW of Nairobi. All members of staff are housed on the campus in School accommodation and receive domestic help. Near the Equator and at 2600m, the climate is temperate. It is malaria free.
