The Codrington School - The International School of Barbados

Educational mission

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.
