Academic Excellence

At St Andrew’s Senior School, the academic programme is extensive and challenging with students being encouraged to excel with increasing independence. Students join the Senior School mainly for St Andrew’s Prep School, but also from other Prep Schools in Kenya, as well as Kenyan 8-4-4 schools and other schools from across sub-Saharan Africa. Entrance is subject to passing the School’s entrance examinations and suitably talented students are encouraged to apply for academic scholarships or specialist scholarships in music, drama, art and sport.

On joining the school (Year 9), all students follow a broad curriculum based on the English National Curriculum and building towards GCSE or IGCSE examinations at the end of Year 11.

  • English Language and Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Science as three discreet disciplines: Biology, Chemistry and Physics
  • Creative Subjects: Art, Design Technology, Drama and Music
  • ICT, P.E. and Games
  • Modern Foreign Languages, two of: French, German, Spanish
  • Humanities: Geography, History, Religious Studies
  • Social Sciences: Business Studies, Economics, Psychology and Sociology
  • Personal Social and Health Education

 

As student progress to Years 10 and 11, students follow a common core of English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Students chose four of the other subjects, with Business Studies and Sociology being added to the curriculum as new options, to complete their portfolio of 10 GCSE/IGCSE subjects.

All students continue their PSHE studies as a non-examined course.  After Year 11 students graduate to St Andrew’s College for the final two years of their school education, where they study for 4 AS levels and mostly continue with three subjects to A level in Year 13. Some of the most academically able students will continue to study all 4 subjects to A level. In addition to the subjects offered at GCSE, Economics and Psychology are added to the College Curriculum.

The College has a well-established programme of careers and university guidance, including an annual “Town and Gown” trip to allow students to visit a number of prestigious English universities. As well as the UK, students in recent years have gained places in top US universities as well as other highly regarded institutions around the world.

The school enters students for Cambridge International Exams (CIE) and Edexcel exams at both IGCE and A level.

Pastoral Approach to Academic Pursuits

By focusing on understanding the individual needs of each of our students, we aim to encourage the very best levels of performance from each child. Unlocking the full potential of each student is the key and we follow a structured approach to achieve this.

We place a high premium on pastoral care in the classroom, around the School and in the boarding houses. Students in the Senior School are grouped into pastoral groups, called ‘Tutor groups’, the tutor being responsible for overseeing their tutees’ academic progress and pastoral welfare. Tutor groups are based around the 4 school Boarding Houses with two tutor groups of about 8 students in each Year group in each Boarding House. Tutors work closely with a highly experienced team of Boarding Houseparents and Assistant Houseparents who are also in regular contact with student’s academic teachers. In the Senior School class sizes are limited to 20 students, except for the top sets in English, Maths and Science which may be slightly largely to allow for slightly smaller lower sets.

The College this year sees a move to a maximum class size of 15 at AS level which will apply to A2 in future years. In reality, many classes are considerable smaller than this. St Andrew’s remains committed to offering a wide choice of subjects at A level.

Education Beyond the Classroom

Special events take place each year, which add to the breadth of academic and cultural life at St Andrew’s School. Events this academic year have included:

  • Choral and orchestral tour to Japan
  • Universities “Town and Gown” trip to Cambridge, Nottingham, Manchester and London Universities, England
  • World Scholar’s Cup Regional Finals in Nairobi
  • World Scholar’s Cup International Final in Bangkok, Thailand
  • Regional Model United Nations Conference in Nairobi
  • Senior Round Square Student Conference, Marrakesh, Morocco,
  • Junior Round Square Student Conference to Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Hosting a Spanish cultural day at St Andrew’s
  • Visits to art galleries, museums and theatres
  • Business Studies and Geography field trips to local and national sites of interest
  • Weekly sports tours to play other international school in Kenya and Trip to Youth Football World Cup, Sweden where the St Andrew’s team won the award for “most sporting team” as well as reaching the semi-finals.

 

St Andrew’s is very proud of it status as a Round Square School (www.roundsquare.org) , an elite organisation of about 150 similarly minded schools from across all continents of the world who place the Round Square IDEALS of internationalism, democracy, environment, adventure, leadership and service at the heart of their school curriculum. The school is very pleased to be hosting its first ever Round Square Conference in February 2017 which will provide many more of our students gain first-hand experience of a Round Square event.

 

St. Andrew’s has a rich tradition of music and drama, with students having the opportunity to study for ABRSM exams in a wider range of instrumental as well as theory exams, as well as the LAMDA individual dram exams. About half the student in the Senior School and College will take exams in either drama or music in 2016, with many gaining merits or distinctions.
