Principal's Message

Welcome to our new school website! I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments at Sir John A Cumber Primary School. 

Our School is located in the district of West Bay in Grand Cayman and is but a heartbeat away from the picturesque Seven Mile Beach, Boatswain Beach, Turtle Farm and Dolphin Park among many other locations.  We are the largest primary school on the island (public or private), and we cater primarily for students from the West Bay area. 

Sir John A Cumber is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and for the future.

As an International Baccalaureate School, we provide an engaging curriculum and do our very best to ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories.  We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum, where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.

The school has a dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in the Cayman Islands. 

We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular programme.   The website will grow over time as we add more information, but it will never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us. If you have suggestions to make about its content and design or would like to see us at work please contact me via the school office.

Thank you for visiting

Mr. Paul Samuel
School Principal
