Peterhouse was a boys school, until 1987 when the Girls School was opened. The former Springvale School was incorporated as a co-ed primary school in 1985, after absorbing the pupils from Eagle School near Umtali, which had closed in 1976.

The Peterhouse campus boasts at least three 25m swimming pools. Pupils compete in water polo and swimming.
