St Andrew’s School Jobs 2022 for Teacher of Physics available. See details below on how to apply for the position of Teacher of Physics in Millar Cameron.
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’.
An able, well-qualified and inspiring teacher of Physics is required to join this very successful and innovative department from September. The department currently comprises four teachers who work in modern, well-resourced laboratories with the support of lab technicians.
Whilst desirable, prior teaching experience is not a necessity. We are looking for applicants who relish the opportunity to work with bright, ambitious and well-motivated students. Applicants must demonstrate an ability to relate to young people together with a genuine, academically well-grounded enthusiasm for the subject. Applicants should endeavour to inspire students to develop high standards of scholarship through innovative, clearly focused and responsive teaching, which goes the extra mile, and encourages students to do the same.
In line with other currently advertised positions, the roles of Head of Careers or Director of Learning could also be available for the right candidate.
All staff are involved in the wider life of St Andrew’s, including the School’s vibrant co-curricular and boarding programmes; an ability to contribute to these would be advantageous.
Working at St Andrew’s, Turi, is an exciting and dynamic experience. Our desire is 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.
Essential to working with us are:
- The need to be able to support the School’s aims and Christian ethos
- A clear passion for Physics
- A good degree in your teaching subject and relevant teaching experience
- Experience in pastoral care (boarding school experience is desirable, but not essential)
- A strong work ethic and experience of working in a team
Beyond that we want staff who are committed to allowing students to thrive; first-class communicators; passionate about the subjects and students they teach; creative and diligent in their planning; and, given life in a full boarding school, are adaptable, energetic and resilient.
There is a generous overall remuneration package as detailed below (the cost of living in Kenya is significantly lower than in the UK):
- Salary: The successful applicant will be placed on the Turi Pay Scale and there will be an additional allowance for the role.
- Accommodation: suitable rent free accommodation will be provided as a taxable benefit. Domestic and gardening help is arranged by the School, but paid for, at local rates, by the applicant.
- School fees (where applicable): there is a 100% fee remission for staff children throughout the School; places are subject to the School’s normal entry requirements. Fee remission is a taxable benefit.

- Relocation: outward and return flights for the applicant, and for his/her spouse and dependent children [up to the age of 18] as applicable, together with a freight allowance, at the beginning and end of the contract period, are paid for by the School. This is applicable to staff recruited from outside the country.
- Meals: these are provided during term time as a taxable benefit.
- Facilities: extensive recreational facilities are open to use by staff and their families. The onsite Phoenix Club, serving a wide range of food and beverages, acts as a wonderful social hub for the staff community and their families throughout the year.
