Only 5 kilometres from the Bulawayo CBD, in Matsheumhlope, you will find a very special school called Petra College Junior.
Petra College Junior is an excellent Christian school for girls and boys ranging from ECD A to Grade 7 and is a feeder school to Petra College Senior. The school has a Remedial Centre which caters for children with learning difficulties who will also be taken care of at the senior school. The school offers a rich curriculum with academic subjects and a variety of sporting disciplines and cultural activities.
The academic side has been boosted by registering as a Cambridge Centre and taking Checkpoint examinations for Cambridge curriculum in year 6 (Grade 6). This development gives our learners an advantage as they move to Petra College Senior which is also a Cambridge Centre. In their final year the learners write our National examinations. Our pass rate is over 90%.
As well as the local inter-schools sports on Thursdays and Saturdays, our teams frequently travel across Zimbabwe’s borders to widen the children’s horizons in their sport. It is quite expected that some of our children will be selected for Provincial and National representation.
Petra College Junior offers a holistic education, ensuring our learners are well-prepared for the next step of their lives.
