What I enjoy most about Peterhouse is the balance between academic life and the extra-curricular activities which the school has to offer.

Introducing our 2021 Head of Sport - Travis Arnold

My name is Travis Arnold and I am in Ellis House. I live in Bromley and completed my junior school years at Ruzawi School before joining Peterhouse in D block (Form 1).

I am currently studying Mathematics, Physics and Geography and hope to study either business or engineering in the future. We are currently learning in a digi-school environment which I find to be strangely satisfying due to the limitless tools and previously unknown benefits of using different devices in the learning domain.

My interests and hobbies at Peterhouse include playing sport with my friends or for the school. My main sports that I excel in and love are rugby and waterpolo. I also love spending time in the gym to maintain a healthy physical and mental lifestyle. One of the best things about Peterhouse is the outdoor learning experience, in particular, the expeditions around the country which boosted my largest personal growth through these challenges.

From the Rector's Desk - 26th February 2021

Friday 26 February 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

RE: FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK

I do hope that the recent half term provided you all with a good break from the demands of online schooling. As the week has unfolded we have, increasingly, grown in expectation of an announcement about the re-opening of schools. This has been prompted by the school having to complete documentation on our preparedness to re-open the school for the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education. I would certainly like to think that we have everything in place to get our pupils back.

Introducing our 2021 Head of Ellis – David Mortleman

My name is David Mortleman and I am in Ellis House. I live in Mutare and went to Springvale House Prep School in Marondera.

I joined Peterhouse in D block in 2016 and am currently studying Mathematicss, History and Geography for my A levels. I hope to pursue a law or business degree in the near future.

When I am at school I enjoy playing for the first team in sports such as rugby and cricket, however my favourite part of school is spending time with the lads in my house and year group - which has sadly been more difficult over digi-school and the current national lockdown. Peterhouse, for me, is the perfect place to thrive and build relationships with peers and teachers whilst having a lot of fun at the same time.

During my free time I have enjoyed training for sport as well as relaxing with my family and friends.
I hope that we can return to school as soon as possible and continue to enjoy the school we love.


Danni Kaschula World Rowing Record Breaker 2021

Huge congratulations to Dannielle Kaschula, Peterhouse Girls, who re-broke her World Record for the U14s 2021 World Rowing Indoor Championships in the Peterhouse Boys gym on Wednesday.

Danielle also rocked the rowing world with her third place finish in the finals of the U19 Women’s World Indoor Rowing Championship. Danielle represented both Zimbabwe and Africa in this competition, having completed a rigorous qualification process. Given Danielle’s age against that of her competitors, this was an amazing achievement. She has certainly done her school, indeed her country, proud. She was supported by a small, yet very vocal, audience, who egged her on to finish in an impressive 1:31:9.
