“Be the best that I can be”


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 Educational Trust is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research, and developing leaders in many disciplines who make a difference globally.

  • Care and concern for the individual – St John’s believes passionately that when pedagogy fits learning needs, boys can and do thrive at school.

  • Compassion – compassion is a core part of leading and successful leaders maintain a ‘servant’s heart’.
  • Breadth and balance – we endeavour to build breadth and balance with the aim of forming men and woman of ‘conscience’.

We are committed to ensuring a caring environment in our schools where good manners, values and ethics are upheld and where individual expression is encouraged and all students strive to reach their full potential.
