There is a reward system where students are recognised not only for their academics but in areas that include Great Class Citizen, Helpfulness, Integrity, Kindness and Great Effort. 

In the final year of primary school students are prepared for taking the Eleven Plus exam, officially called the Barbados Secondary School Entrance Examination (BSSEE). Our students usually shine here, and we are always very proud of their performances.
