Across all three Islands, government primary and secondary schools accept students based on catchment areas.
Students enrolling in Government primary and high schools must register with the Department of Education Services, 130 Thomas Russell Way, George Town, Grand Cayman, or the Cayman Brac Teacher’s Centre, in the months between the end of the Easter holidays and before the end of the school year (in early July). You will need to complete an application form, upload a copy of the child’s birth certificate, immunisation card, and documentation showing the child’s residency category (i.e. a passport or status letter). Parents must also supply two forms of proof of their street address by presenting a utility bill and lease or a notarised letter from a landlord if renting. Catchment areas determine which school your child will attend. Priority for Government schools is always given to Caymanians/Status holders first.
