The Admissions Team

We at Peterhouse are always happy to help prospective students, parents or teachers. You can phone or email us, look us up on The Student Room or follow us on Twitter. We have two Schools Liaison/Admissions Officers along with three Admissions Tutors.

Martin Thompson and Kathy Purdy are Peterhouse's Schools Liaison Officers.

Martin graduated from Magdalene College for the first time in June 2007, having studied Natural Sciences, and for the second time in 2014 having completed a PhD in butterfly genetics in collaboration with the Natural History Museum. Before coming to Cambridge, he attended a grammar school in Liverpool. When not in the office, Martin is a beekeeper and spends his spare time chasing swarms around Cambridgeshire and trying not to get stung.

Kathy studied English at Homerton College, graduating in June 2009. Before Cambridge she attended a small mixed comprehensive school near Bristol. Every summer Kathy takes a two-month break from Peterhouse to drive the Helford Ferry.

Charmaine Clubb is the Access Officer for the JCR, the undergraduate student committee. She is in her final year studying Law at Peterhouse.

Scott Mandelbrote is the College's Admissions Tutor in the Arts, whilst Sophie Jackson and András Zsák are Admissions Tutors in the Sciences. All are very happy to answer any questions you may have, but contact should be made through the Admissions Office.
