Peterhouse Girls

Peterhouse Boys

The relationship between the three schools within the Peterhouse Group is best described as an adoption of the diamond system, sometimes used in England and much admired.  At the lowest point of the diamond we have a co-educational primary school (Springvale House); at their entry into secondary education the boys and girls are split (Peterhouse Boys and Peterhouse Girls), and for the last two years, when coeducation is desirable for academic and social reasons, the boys and girls come together again at the highest point of the diamond.

After their A Level classes at Peterhouse Boys each day, the girls return to Peterhouse Girls where they are accommodated in attractive cottages in which they work as well as sleep.    

The younger girls are not isolated from the boys over the road.  Right at the beginning of their Peterhouse experience, boys and girls get to know one another at a D Block (Form 1) Social and such age-group socials and House socials are encouraged.  Moreover, Peterhouse boys are welcome visitors to Peterhouse Girls every Sunday.

The Peterhouse Group of Schools takes advantage of the best of both worlds; the advantage of both single-sex and co-educational schooling are maximized and their disadvantages avoided.
