High standards and a culture of continued improvement is obvious. The Cayman Islands team is looking forward to an ongoing partnership as we grow and improve our education system.”

St John’s Headteacher Ms Marilyn Borlase said: “Yesterday we were privileged to welcome a very esteemed delegation from the Cayman Islands. They came to see how we achieve such amazing progress with ALL of our children. They were so impressed with the pupils’ behaviour, and our high standards of teaching and learning.”

St John’s Primary School was placed in the top 10% of the country in the most recent pupil progress results.
