The spring from which the school derives its name still rises in a nearby vlei. The name "Chisipite" is Shona for "spring" and this is what inspired both the fountain badge and the motto "Fons vitae caritas".
Chisipite Senior School opened its doors in 1954 to cater for the students leaving the Junior School which was founded as a farm school in 1929. With 2 members of staff and 48 girls, Chisipite Senior School became the first inter-denominational private girls' secondary school in Central Africa. It is now one of the premier, multicultural girls' schools in the country.
The school is founded on Christian principles with a philosophy embodied in the lines from the school song "to be brave and strong and true and to fill with the world with love my whole life through".
We are proud of the atmosphere of caring and concern for others for which the school is known. It is hoped that each member of the school community will develop a sense of belonging while being accepted and valued as an individual.
