Condolences – Mrs Nicky Hammond

Dear Peterhouse Community,


It was with real sadness and sorrow that the Peterhouse community received the news of Mrs Nicky Hammond’s tragic passing in Harare on Sunday 9 May 2021.

Nicky, alongside her husband Simon, who is Chairman of the Peterhouse Board of Governors, was a long-time champion of Peterhouse, providing amazing support to the school in so many ways. Not only has Peterhouse lost an incredible friend, but so too, as the Eisteddfod Vocal and Instrumental Director, we as a school recognise that both the NIAA and Zimbabwe lose a real advocate and supporter of the Arts. Her passion for the school and the Arts in Zimbabwe was exemplified by the esteem and respect she gained in serving both of these communities.

Meet Andy Schultz - Transport & Workshops Manager 2021

Andy joined the Peterhouse Group in January 2021 as the Transport and Workshops Manager.

Andy began his adventurous career as a commercial diver in the North Sea. During his time on the oil rigs he also qualified as a Life Support Technician and Lead Mechanic. He was later promoted from working under water to above water, when he became Installation and Commissioning Engineer, building the rigs rather than repairing them.

He is also an experienced and passionate Strength and Conditioning Coach and CrossFit Coach. At the tender young age of 3, he cut off the sleeves of his favourite shirt because he wanted to look like the Incredible Hulk. Thankfully he has grown out of this stage, but his desire to help people improve themselves through physical fitness and strength has remained unwavering. To this end Andy also owned a Commercial Gym and CrossFit Gym whilst working offshore where he dedicated his time back home to helping others discover their own inner “Incredible Hulk.”
