Our School

Play Video

The Heritage School offers a British education in Zimbabwe, where academic excellence is complemented by cultural, sporting and social development. Hard work, self-criticism, enthusiasm and loyalty are encouraged in order to support our aim of developing leadership and the acceptance of responsibility.

We firmly believe that the environment in which children are taught and learn is of paramount importance. We are privileged to have a school set in the most beautiful parkland setting, Borrowdale Brooke. The teaching facilities at Heritage are of the highest standard.  The opening of the New boarding house “Acacia House” is an exciting development which will raise the standard of Boarding in Zimbabwe to a new level.
