From the principal

"The school is a unique community in idyllic surroundings, offering a mixed race and truly Christian boarding education of the highest quality, following the British Curriculum.

"For all our Turi students, the measure of the quality of their St Andrew’s education will lie not just in the strength of the examination results, but in the values, friendships and attitudes that last for many more years than any understanding of the nuances of trigonometry."

Executive Head Teacher's Introduction-Mr. Joshua Gibbons

"The character of a school can never fully be captured in a Head’s address. Its true identity is defined by the people that fill it, the experiences they share and the impacts its pupils go on to make when they depart and enter the world. It is my hope however that this will give you a flavour for who we are at St. Christopher’s and offer a glimpse into this wonderful and unique home of British education and Kenyan warmth.At St. Christopher’s we believe that a broad and balanced curriculum is essential as pupils move through their school life. One that is grounded in Christian ethos and is pupil centred, value-based and driven forward by pupils making sense of the world they live in and also their place within it; developing a passion for learning rather than a need to simply acquire and recite facts.With access to world-class facilities and inspiring educators, we offer our pupils the opportunities to deepen their understanding, challenge opinions and in doing so widen their horizons as they prepare for the world that awaits them when they leave school; allowing them to feel unique, yet very much a part of a special St. Christopher’s family.At the forefront of our pupil-centred approach is an environment which is inquiry-led and aims to provide our learners with the ‘Big Picture’, making their learning experiences meaningful as we grow their international mindfulness and understanding of the world.Our teachers challenge our pupils to become the very best versions of themselves, prepared to enter the world as truly global citizens; with faith, respect, empathy and compassion.I look forward to welcoming you in person and showing you more of this wonderful and vibrant learning institution."
