Peterhouse Boys

Meet Simon Allott - Tinokura (Form 1) Housemaster

Simon and his wife Helen, together with their three children (plus two dogs, a cat, two rabbits and a chicken!) have been at Peterhouse since August 2019, taking over as the Tinokura Housemaster and contributing to the Science and Physics departments. He is also i/c Squash and, together with Helen, has taken on the Archery Club. The Allotts are members of the Springvale Community Church, are avid readers and enjoy watching movies together. They take many walks through Calderwood and being helpful when they can!

After completing high school at Falcon College and then graduating with a BSc (Chemical Engineering) from UCT, Simon worked in industry for a number of years as an engineering process manager with some household names like Olivine Industries and Lafarge Cement. Soon after joining the diaspora in 2007, he undertook a Post Graduate Education diploma with the University of Western Australia and began his teaching career in 2010.

Prior to joining Peterhouse he has enjoyed the privilege of a range of roles in both secondary and primary schools, including being head of a small primary school in Perth and head teacher at The Heritage School in Harare. He hopes that these experiences and his experiences in industry will enable him to have a positive influence within Peterhouse.
