Founders House


Assistant Housemaster – Mr Ronald Ziko

Head of House – Reagan Evans


Founders was completely gutted and refurbished in 2011 and a separate Common Room was built between the House and the Housemaster’s house.  Since its original construction the House has had many modifications made to it.  Founders has a pool table,  a table tennis table, wide screen television set, new curtains and the chairs have been reupholstered and bean bags added.

Named and dedicated to all the people who helped in the creation of the Group of Schools, Founders opened as a full House of 61 boys on the 27th of January 1959 with Mr N A Davis, as House-Master (1959-1963), Mr D M Howarth as House Tutor and Mr J W Greenacre and Rev. Mackay as Residents.  

Arnold Mawerera has been Housemaster of Founders House since January 2020. He joined Peterhouse in January 2013 to teach in the Chemistry and Physics departments, having taught at Prince Edward School.

He is currently the i/c of Cross Country and coaches Basketball and Soccer. Since joining Peterhouse he has held the following positions, Senior Tutor Middle School and more recently Senior Tutor Upper School.

Arnold, having completed his A levels at Prince Edward School, went on to study Bsc Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Zimbabwe. He also completed his PGCSE through UNISA.

Arnold and his wife Nyaradzai have a son named Jayden.

As Housemaster Arnold hopes to nurture and help boys achieve their personal best in all school activities; and building lasting relationships that are mutually beneficial.
