St. John’s College
There is no such whetstone, to sharpen a good wit and encourage a will to learning, as is praise. St John’s Educational Trust governs two schools; St John’s Preparatory School for Boys and St John’s College. Both are independent day schools and members of the Association of Trust Schools of Zimbabwe. The Headmasters are members of the Conference of Heads of Independent Schools of Zimbabwe.
The Preparatory School admits boys from the age of 5 to 12 for Infants, Junior and Senior Primary schooling. Founded in 1986, St John’s College is a leading independent secondary school in Zimbabwe. The College admits boys from the age of 12 to 18. Most boys who elect to go on to the College are accepted. The continuity of ethos and St John’s spirit is recognised and fostered.
St John’s Preparatory School was founded in 1956 by Peter and Barbara Hickman at their Borrowdale property. It began as a small family school with 13 pupils. It was their desire to establish a school for boys which offered a sound system of education in an atmosphere conducive to the growth and development of each personality. The school soon grew into a viable private school with 120 children with a class in each grade from 1 to 7.
