Being Rector

  • Alan Megahey


We have reached the Orwellian year of 1984. This chapter will be autobiographical: it necessitates a change of focus as I was involved in the events described, but also because it is worth looking at a school through the eyes of the person appointed to lead it. But the focus when examining more recent years must be adjusted anyway; ‘contemporary history’ requires a change in the rules of engagement. Most of the people who feature in subsequent chapters (and indeed many in the previous chapters) are still alive – some indeed still at Peterhouse. And again, the closer we move to the school’s golden jubilee, the less certain are the outcomes of events and decisions, and this is particularly the case in Zimbabwe in the early 21st century.
