A message from

The Headmaster

A warm welcome to the Springvale House Website.

Springvale House is situated out in the country 80kms east of the capital, Harare, on the Mutare Road. Our grounds are covered in beautiful msasas and rocky outcrops, making it a haven for young children as they grow up. Our school serves as the preparatory school for the Peterhouse Group.

We are a weekly boarding and day scholar school, catering for both boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 12 years. The school shares the same grounds and facilities as Peterhouse Girls School (on an estate of some 1200 acres).

As our mission statement indicates, we are child’ orientated in our approach and cater for each and every child’s needs, thus ensuring their true potential is fulfilled.

I do hope you enjoy browsing through our website and look forward to hearing from you should you wish to know anything more.
