Peterhouse Boys

Malvern House


Assistant Housemaster  -  Mr Philemon Chirombe

Head of House – Keith Elliott


Malvern House was opened in September 1957 under the leadership of Mr Bruce Fieldsend who later became the second Rector of Peterhouse.  It was the fourth House to be built after Ellis, Paget and Grinham.  The second Housemaster was Mr George Martin who took over in 1968. 

There are 65 boys in Malvern House at present.  Malvern boys have particularly excelled in cultural activities boasting the largest number of boys in the school choir and school play.  Fundraising is done on a regular basis. 
It would be great to hear news from friends of Malvern and Petreans.

Fortune Mukucha joined Peterhouse in September 2007 to teach history and was a resident tutor living in Malvern until 2012.
Fortune previously taught at Watershed College in 1999 before moving to Kyle College in Masvingo where he was appointed Head of Department History on arrival in 2000. He was also appointed Housemaster in 2002 and subsequently Senior Housemaster in 2004, until 2007 when he joined Peterhouse Boys. At Kyle he was IC Soccer and Debate and coached cricket and athletics.

After his high school at Marist Brothers Nyanga, he attained a Bachelor of Arts degree with the University of Zimbabwe and later PGCSE with Unisa.

Fortune was appointed Head of History in 2010 and Housemaster in 2015.

At Peterhouse he has coached cricket, soccer and athletics and is involved with senior debate.

Fortune is married to Shamiso Rose who teaches geography at Peterhouse Girls and is also the Head of Department. They have three daughters, two of which are at Peterhouse Girls. 

As a Housemaster, Fortune aims to ‘touch the lives of all the boys in my care in a very positive way. With an academic background myself; I would like to lift that profile of the House as well as the sports and culture. I would like to assist the boys to fulfil their potential in these areas. I hope to earn the respect of every boy who is in my care as this is mutual. A home away from home is what I hope establish. The boys need to interact with each other in a respectful manner. The House needs to be a place of order and discipline’.
