Peterhouse Girls

Honours Award 2018

The Honours tie - and now the Honours Brooch - is the highest award which can be bestowed upon any Peterhouse pupil. It is to recognize those who live the life others should aspire to, who live by the very values we champion.

This year we have awarded two honours brooches.
These two girls have led together with a quiet sense of servant leadership all through the year. They have been great ambassadors for the school and have embodied all that they have aimed to achieve – a school in which the girls are kinder to each other and care about the individual as well as the school as a whole.

Congratulations to Mazvita Mtausi-Gwaradzimba and Georgina Lock.

Leavers Service 2018

We held our 2018 Leavers Service in the Chapel of St Francis with the service conducted by Mr Karl Heuer and a lovely departing speech given by Ms Bernice Candy. .

It was an emotional morning as we bid farewell to girls who have been a part of the school for 6 years. These girls have grown, matured, achieved so much, served, made special friendships and are now ready to take on the next chapter of their lives. We will certainly miss them.

During the service the VIth Form came up to the front to hand in their old flat school shoes, which will be donated to charity, and to collect a Gideon’s Bible to carry with them through life.
