About Us

Epworth High School

Our History

The school was established in 1981 with 300 students as a community school by Epworth Residents of the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe. In the year 2000, the school had an enrolment of 2 400 pupils. Currently, it has 1 279 formal students and 320 Non Formal students from Forms 1 to 6. It was at first housed at Epworth Primary School before moving to its present site when the then kraal Head, Isaac Muzambwa donated a piece of his farmland to the school. The first substantive head of the school was the legendary jazz musician Mr Friday Mbirimi and was followed by Ms Musingwini in 1985. (Please note that before independence, especially during the war of liberation, the church had allowed a number of Black Africans to take permanent and temporary residence on its farm before surrendering the greater part of it to the government after independence). In October 2013, the Epworth Local Board took over the school as the Responsible Authority.

INCOME SITUATION OF THE COMMUNITY

The school is in a relatively poor community with a good number of its members relying on donors for school fees and their day to day needs. The number of donors paying fees has been greatly reduced. Members make a living by doing odd jobs in the city of Harare mainly as touts and vendors. The greater part of Epworth is still to be serviced so as to regularize the informal settlements or houses. It is therefore, almost impossible for the school to make meaningful follow-ups to school fees defaulters.
