Head's Profile

Mrs Tracy Blignaut joined as Headmistress of Peterhouse Girls in January 2015.

Tracy was educated at the University of Sussex in the UK where she read Mathematics and Statistics, graduating in 1993. She then went on to complete her PGCSE (teaching diploma in secondary education) before moving out to Zimbabwe with her husband and young baby.

From 1994 to 2012 Tracy worked at Chisipite Senior School, taking on various roles during that time including Form Teacher, House Mistress, i/c Academic Timetable and Line Mistress. In January 2013 she moved to Hellenic Academy where she became Head of Mathematics until December 2014.

Tracy has two sons and a daughter. Her youngest son Aiden is living at Peterhouse with her, while her elder son and daughter are studying in Cape Town. Caitlyn has just completed her degree in mechanical engineering and is returning to UCT to pursue post-graduate studies. Corey completed a one year course at SA Chefs Academy and is now starting his second year at Varsity College where he is studying a Bachelor of Commerce degree.

Tracy has in the past completed both the 94.7 cycle race in Johannesburg and the Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town. She is hoping to make the most of the beautiful surroundings at Peterhouse to again train for this event in the next couple of years.
