Peterhouse Girls

Introducing our 2021 Head of B Block - Sarah Burdett

My name is Sarah Burdett and I am Head of B Block (Form 3) for 2021.

I am from a small town in Mozambique called Catandica. I started my first two years of junior school at Sharon school in Harare, I then went to Njerenji, a small school just outside Chimio in Mozambique.

I have been at Peterhouse since D block (Form 1). I am currently studying Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology and hope to pursue a career in environmental industry. I am interested in a variety of things and have been very grateful to be able to do most of these at Peterhouse. For example, I enjoy waterpolo training, I also play chess for Peterhouse and participate in hospital visits.

During my time at Peterhouse I have earned the Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze and Silver Awards, travelled to the International Maths Olympiad in India, achieved Academic Half-Colours and worked on the A Block Charity Dance Committee.

I really love the atmosphere around the school and how kind people generally are to one another, I like knowing that my peers will always have my back and that ‘queens fix each other’s crowns’.
I love reading in my spare time and cooking/baking for my brothers

Peterhouse has taught me many valuable lessons, one of the main lessons that has stuck with me is that it is okay to fail sometimes as long as you get back out there and keep trying because if you believe in something strong enough and you have determination, you will achieve your goal.
