w.e.f. January 2020

Applications are invited for the post of Head of Springvale House w.e.f. January 2020 to replace Mr Graham Peebles who will be stepping down from the post at the end of the Michaelmas term 2019 after 26 years of outstanding service. This is a very exciting opportunity for the right candidate, not only to lead one of Zimbabwe’s most prestigious Prep Schools, but also to join the Peterhouse Group of Schools in a key leadership position.

Peterhouse is a group of three independent schools magnificently located on two highly attractive sites near Marondera, 80km east of Harare. The three schools consist of approximately 1,150 pupils, most of whom are from Zimbabwe (Peterhouse Boys: 480 full boarders aged 12 – 18; Peterhouse Girls: 440 full boarders with a small number of day scholars aged 12 – 18; Springvale House (co-ed) 230 weekly boarders and day scholars aged 5 – 12).

Springvale House is synonymous with outstanding levels of success; academic, sporting and cultural standards are very high indeed and pupils at all ages achieve extraordinary things in a supportive and happy environment.

The successful applicant will be a graduate, will have an outstanding track record in independent education, will understand the culture and commitment required in a weekly boarding/day school and will be in sympathy with the Anglican traditions and ethos of the Peterhouse group.

Applications should be sent to Mr Howard Blackett, Rector, Peterhouse, P/Bag 3741, Marondera, Zimbabwe ( from whom further details can be obtained. The application itself should consist of a full CV, names and contact details of three referees and a covering letter of no more than one side of A4 outlining why the candidate believes that he/she is ideally suited for the post.

The closing date for applications is Monday 29 July; it is anticipated that the appointment process will be completed by the end of this term (i.e. Thursday 8 August).
