Codrington School Barbados

A Truly International Community



The Codrington School is an exciting and interesting place for children to grow and learn. Small class sizes, good facilities, supportive parents and motivated students help create a positive learning environment in the classroom; a place where students can achieve their potential.

  • Diverse student population – from 30 different nations

  • Qualified teachers – from 18 different countries

  • Enrichment Activities – art, music, sports & more


The mission of The Codrington School is to empower all children and adults within the community to become internationally-minded learners who embrace and respect academic excellence and a love of life-long learning and who exemplify the traits of the IB learner profile.

We believe that The Codrington School is a community of internationally-minded learners, both Barbadian and foreign and both children and adults, which is committed to the success of each individual child, according to that child’s age, aptitudes and abilities, whilst developing in each person the qualities outlined in the International Baccalaureate learner profile.

We further believe that all students at the school should be offered the opportunity to learn in an atmosphere of trust, security and high educational standards, without either the threat of or recourse to corporal punishment, which will enable them to be well educated in all disciplines offered by the school, whether curricular or enrichment activities.

The structure of the IB programmes are designed to provide all students with common understandings of key terms and tenets, while allowing schools to creatively use their resources to provide experiences that meet the needs of their student body. Not all IB schools look and feel the same around the globe; however, students in IB schools do gain a shared awareness of what it means, for example, to be internationally-minded, to value and cultivate human ingenuity, to hone and make use of transdisciplinary skills, to approach learning with attitudes that yield optimum results, and to assess one’s learning in a myriad of ways.
