Welcome to the Sixth Form College

St Andrew’s College opened in September 2010, following the outstanding success of the Senior School. We provide exceptional A Level education, excellent resources and comfortable, modern boarding facilities.

Entry into Year 12 is dependent on grades achieved at (I)GCSE, with students expected to attain 20 points in their 3 chosen A Level subjects and 4+ in English Language and Mathematics.

Our goal is to prepare students with the skills, knowledge and dynamism needed to thrive in university life and beyond. We will strive to ensure that every student learns to grasp opportunities and develops the resilience, resourcefulness, initiative and integrity required to succeed.

Life in the College provides a wide variety of opportunities, not just in academic terms, but also through clubs, societies, roles of responsibility and social life. In particular, we place a high priority on the development of leadership skills.



Our goal is that every young person will leave Turi with the character and skills needed to thrive in a society that is changing at an ever increasing pace. Academic skills are no longer the sole route to success. Students must demonstrate that they are articulate communicators, effective managers, confident leaders and empathetic team members.

Students develop their leadership skills through workshops, seminars, lectures, clubs and societies, on the sports field, in the boarding houses and by taking on roles of responsibility around the School and College. We aim to equip students to become young people of influence and integrity.

The Turi Leadership Award is designed to strengthen and develop our mission to build and mould the next generation of leaders of integrity and vision in East Africa. It is a rigorous two-year university accredited diploma course undertaken by students in Years 12 and 13. The course is built upon the premise that great leaders are by nature self-reflective and so there are a number of self-evaluation and self-review activities. There are independent assessment points where each student’s performance as a leader is assessed by senior teachers against clear and challenging attainment criteria.

A unique feature of our Leadership programme is that every student in Year 12 and 13 is expected to be involved in community service programmes, many of which are based in the community around the school in the Turi and Molo area. The level of personal development attained by students taking part in these programmes is remarkable.


Careers and Higher Education

We anticipate that students from St Andrew’s will go on to study at universities all around the world. Building upon our established links with educational institutions in every continent, we will make sure that our students receive the advice, guidance and information they need as they consider future careers and universities.

Year 12 students undertake a period of work experience; they consult the Head of Careers, develop their CV and improve their interview skills through presentations and workshops.

The Head of Sixth Form College, Head of Careers, tutors and subject teachers work with students in Year 13 to fine tune their applications to universities, which include UCAS applications for those students seeking admission to UK universities, the Common Application for US universities and specific applications to universities elsewhere in the world.

In the past 4 years, over 90% of pupils at Turi have gone to their first choice university. Many of our students go on to top universities around the world, especially in the UK and the US.
