September 2022 School Inspection report for Cayman Academy
Details from September 2022 School Inspection Report:
Cayman Academy is a private Seventh Day Adventist school located in George Town, Grand Cayman. It is locally managed by the Cayman Islands’ Conference of Seventh Day Adventists.
There were 300 students at the school at the time of the inspection, of which 47 per cent were Caymanian. The largest non-Caymanian group consisted of Jamaican students. The school employs 28 teachers and eight support staff.
Teachers in Kindergarten follow the Cayman Islands Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, while teachers in the Primary phase use a combination of the UK and the Cayman Islands National Curriculum for their planning. In the Secondary school, the curriculum is based on the syllabus requirements of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificates (CSEC), the Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Level Competence (CCSLC) and CXC.
The school had experienced substantial staffing changes in the previous two academic years, which was particularly disruptive in the weeks prior to the inspection. The previous principal and seven teachers resigned to take up new positions elsewhere, and two staff were absent on sickness or personal leave. The school had been able to fill most positions, although a few teachers were yet to arrive on the island. The substantive Vice Principal, who was appointed as Interim Principal, expanded the leadership team to include a new administrative core committee of five members and an administrative committee comprising the core plus three middle managers.
The school delayed reopening after the summer break until September 7th to conduct intensive orientation days with each year group and had been open for eight days prior to the inspection.
