Find out about super-strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian Classroom. Make sure you’re on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible!

Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take fore granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the first flushing loo!

Let’s forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered.

Take on the role of an important reformer and present your causes to the Queen. Can you gain the support of a wealthy sponsor?

Full steam ahead to the Victorian age!


Barbados’ P.E days are Monday and Thursday.

Children need to come into school on these days dressed in their P.E kit.

Children with long hair need to have this tied up and earrings ideally need to be removed. If this is not possible, earrings will need to be covered.


Homework is sent out on a Friday and is due back in school on the following Wednesday, if your child needs assistance with their homework this will be offered on a Monday lunch time. This allows your child time to complete and return homework on the due date.

If you have any questions of queries throughout the term, please do not hesitate to make an appointment.
