Windward Road Primary & Junior High School


The Windward Road Primary & Junior High School began in 1935 as the Windward Road Elementary School. It was located at the St. Patrick's Church of which it is an affiliate.
The school was later relocated to its present location at 141 Windward Road. The school currently has a population of one thousand six hundred and three (1603) students and a complement of sixty three (63) members of staff including the Principal Mr. Norman Malcolm and two (2) Vice - Principals.

As a Primary and Junior High School, we admit students at the Grade one level up to the grade nine level. Students attaining the Grade six level are entered for an external examination; the Grade Six Achievement Test popularly known as the GSAT where they are placed into High Schools and those attaining the grade nine level do the Junior High exam which places them at either traditional or Technical High Schools.

Students in the Primary Department have a single teacher who teaches all areas such as Mathematics, Social Studies, Religious Education, Language Arts (English), Physical Education is taught by a specialist in that area. In the Junior High Department, the subjects are taught by secondary trained persons; these include Resource and Technology comprising Wood and Metalwork, Food and Nutrition, Clothing and Textile, Spanish, Social Studies, Integrated Science, Music, Religious Education, Physical Education, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Library Skills.

The school's motto is "Only the best is good enough" and to this end we try to achieve top honours in what we do. Our crowning glory was in 2006 when we won the Junior Schools' Challenge Trophy for the first time after having placed third upon our first entry. The victory was again repeated in 2007 when the trophy was successfully defended by defeating Mona Preparatory School.
The schools boasts several accolades in the area of Sports among which are:

1st place - Insport Basketball Rally 2004
2nd place - Insport Junior High Track and Field 2007 & 2008.

The school is Alma Mater to distinguished personalities such as, Dr. Arnaldo Ventura, Olympians; Keith Gardner and Donald Quarrie, Evangelist; Julius Creary, Cricketer; Robert Haynes to name a few.

We aim to be the premiere Primary and Junior High School in Kingston, if not Jamaica and we are setting our sights on this goal which we hope to realize in the next five to ten years.
