Plumtree School boards 400+ boys. A number of pupils who attend the school are from neighbouring Botswana, Zambia and South Africa. The original school consisted of only nine pupils, the nine plums that appear on the school crest.
The school curriculum adheres to Cambridge University’s Ordinary Level and Advanced Level courses.
Every student must play at least one sport each term. Students have represented the country in student sports, with many a captain among them. Other pursuits include a cattle club, a metalwork club and a motor mechanics course.
