Markham College remains dedicated to creating a rich and nurturing environment where pupils are able to fulfil their individual potential. This environment reflects our strong belief in the importance of diversity in learning, the personal growth gained by a bi-lingual and bi-cultural curriculum and a co-educational pupil body.

Markham College was founded in 1946 by a group of Anglo-Peruvians who had previously sent their children to the great independent schools in Britain. Rapidly, Markham began to distinguish itself from other schools in Lima and today, over 70 years later,  Markham College is committed to a more encompassing and innovative education for its pupils.

We have a state-of-the-art wireless internet and intranet system, a highly regarded laptop programme and the use of Smartboards from Nursery (3+) upwards.

Innovative classes such as Design & Technology and Computer Studies now form an integral part of the curriculum in both Primary and Secondary.  

The Outdoor Education Programme is now an integral part of the pupil’s experience at Markham as are opportunities for leadership both within the College and abroad, as well as, international exchange opportunities.

Markham has increased its commitment and participation in social and community programmes. The CAS (Community, Action, Service) programme has expanded to include all Sixth Form students and opportunities for both national and international service projects have been greatly expanded as part of our association with Round Square International (

Our daily commitment is to continue to search for a better way to form young men and young women ready for the challenges and demands of an ever-changing world.

Today, more than 2000 pupils attend Markham College from 34 different countries around the world.
