Sixth Form and BTEC College

Bearing Fruit

When your child leaves Rusinga, they will have the Fortitude and Honour to create new practice and define his or her own standards in the global market.

Sixth Form and BTEC Overview

The Sixth Form programme was started at Rusinga in 1994 and over the years, we  have produced graduates who have joined world class Universities in the UK, USA, Italy, Canada, Australia, Switzerland and South Africa. Many students have also opted for the private and public Universities in Kenya. The Rusinga A Level Campus offers students an environment and experience which bridges the gap between School and University study. It brings a University approach and maturity to the students’ work and broadens and deepens the academic and intellectual perspectives of the student which is of benefit to their tertiary education.

BTEC programmes are vocational / practical / industry oriented. Administered by Pearson (U.K). BTEC is assessed internally by tutors giving assignments / coursework which needs to be done within a deadline. Assessments are externally audited by Pearson’s International Standards Verifiers. They visit centres to audit standards and assessments to ensure consistency. BTEC courses offered at Key Stage 5: Arts & Design, Business, Sports, and Music. Qualifications are recognised in all major universities worldwide and private universities in Kenya.

Reports are given at the end of each term and Parents’ and Teachers’ Consultation Meetings are held in the January Term. However, parents are free to come in and speak to the class tutor to enquire about their child’s progress.
