Teacher of English, Senior School -Maternity Cover, St Andrews School

Job Description

St Andrew’s School, Turi is highly respected in Kenya and regarded as one of the leading international schools in East Africa. Numbering 550 pupils, it comprises two semi-autonomous schools: 

a Preparatory School of circa 220 pupils between the ages of 3 and 13 and a Senior School of circa 330 pupils between the ages of 13 and 18. It is fully coeducational and the great majority are boarders. 


The School has an overtly Christian foundation and sees its overall aim as encouraging young men and women to ‘live and lead with integrity.

The Role

St Andrew’s Senior School is seeking to appoint an inspirational Teacher of English. A love of language and literature and a keen interest in teaching creatively are key requirements. 

The ideal candidate will join a thriving and well-developed department and will be expected to teach from Year 9 to Year 13. The successful individual will be innovative and keen to inspire students to achieve their best.

This is a maternity cover for One Term (September to December 2021). St Andrew’s is committed to providing a vibrant co-curricular and boarding program to which all staff contributes.


Person Specification

Working at St Andrew’s, Turi, is an exciting and dynamic experience. We look to recruit committed and resourceful staff, who are looking to not only develop their skills and leadership capacities but also embrace new experiences and challenges. 

Some things are essential to working with us. The successful candidate will need to be able to support the School’s aims and Christian ethos. They will have to have a degree as well as a recognized teaching qualification, such as a PGCE, and of course, the relevant experience.

Beyond that, we want to have staff who love working as part of a team; who are first-class communicators; who are passionate about the subjects and students they teach; who are creative and diligent in their planning, and who are adaptable, energetic, and resilient. Experience of working in a Senior School, or in boarding, would be desirable, but not essential. 

Above all, what matters is a commitment to help us provide a world-class education for our children.
