Primary Schools

Chiredzi Rural District  is the responsible authority  for 118 council schools  


The provision of education in the district ranges from Early Childhood Development Programme (ECDP), Primary and secondary schools .There are 125 primary schools and 30 secondary in Chiredzi district and no tertiary level facilities except for the two private college that offer some technical training .

Schools in Chiredzi rural areas are not evenly distributed because the district is sparsely populated. This affects children access to education because some of them end up walking long distances to schools. On an analysis basis the nearest primary schools are 6-10km apart and 10 -20km for secondary schools.
