Peterhouse Boys

Introducing our 2021 Tinokura Prefect - James Weller

My name is James Weller and I am in Snell House. I currently live in Harare and I went to St John's Prep (Grades 1-4) and Whitestone (Grades 5-7).

I joined Peterhouse in D block in 2016 and I am now studying Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry for my A-Levels. I am planning on continuing to university to study either mechanical and marine engineering or actuarial science.

I am actively involved in rowing, cross-country and athletics where I enjoy representing Peterhouse at first team level but I also enjoy being a part of the mountain biking and fly-fishing clubs. Having been on four tours to represent both Peterhouse and Zimbabwe for rowing and mountain biking, as well as being captain of rowing, I have a fairly hectic schedule but Peterhouse has been fantastic in keeping me on top of everything that I need to be doing, whilst having great staff and equipment within arm’s reach; literally!

One thing I love about Peterhouse is the brotherhood we have between all the students and the fact that you are always surrounded by people who are constantly challenging and helping you to do better. I have made some amazing friendships through the school and the opportunities that I have had have been endless. This is a school that challenges you to be your best self and makes sure that you are ready to make your mark.

This, however, has mostly all been put on hold as we have been through the various lockdowns. Nevertheless, it has been a good time to reflect and I have certainly enjoyed spending a little more time golfing, fishing, restoring cars and just being with my family than I would usually be able to.
