Development Places
The Peterhouse Group continually improves its facilities in an attempt to better serve the education system in Zimbabwe. To this end, a scheme has been introduced for interested corporates/parents to assist in these developments by purchasing Development Places in any of the Group’s three schools. There are a limited number of Development Places available. Interested parties should contact Mr Mark Whitaker, Business Director.  

Please note that the option to purchase a Development Place must be taken up and payment must be made before the writing of the Entrance Exam. 

The application should include the following:
  1. The completed application form;
  2. A Registration Fee (non-refundable);
  3. A copy of the applicant’s birth certificate;
  4. A copy of the applicant’s most recent school report; and
  5. A passport sized colour photograph of the applicant.

PLEASE NOTE - We do not accept fax or email copies of the application form; please submit this original form. 

Once the application has been approved a non-returnable Entry Fee equivalent to one term’s fees is required to secure the applicant’s place at Peterhouse. Reductions to the Entry Fee are awarded for:

  1. Applicants from Springvale House;
  2. Applicants from Ruzawi School;
  3. Siblings of pupils already within the Peterhouse Group; and
  4. Applicants for Form 2 and above.
