Schools catchment areas announced

In anticipation of Cayman’s two new
all-through secondary schools opening in September, the Education Ministry has
announced the division between the schools’ east and west catchment areas corresponds
to the existing electoral district boundary between Bodden Town and George
Town.

All Year 7-11 students living at a
physical address west of Spotts-Newlands road will attend the John Gray campus.

All Year 7-11 students living at a
physical address east of Spotts-Newlands road will be assigned to the new
Clifton Hunter high school. Until the campus for the school is ready, the
school’s students will attend classes on the existing George Hicks site.

All school catchment areas are
based on the student’s physical home address. The Spotts-Newlands separation
line for the high schools corresponds identically to the existing electoral
district boundary between Bodden Town and George Town.

 “As in all school systems catchment areas may
need to be updated in future years if significant movement of the population
causes the student numbers to change substantially,” said Education Minister
Rolston Anglin.

“However, this catchment boundary
represents the best balance for students at the present time.”

Chief Education Officer Shirley
Wahler said students who will be in Year 12 as of September attending the Year
12 Further Education Programme will be based centrally in one section of the
current George Hicks campus to ensure that all students have equal access to
the full range of specialised training available.
