Prospect Primary School is one of four IB schools in the Cayman Islands. It is a Government Public school with a student population of 362. The school is located on the outskirts of the capital, George Town and sits at the heart of a very loyal community. Our highly supportive Parent Teacher Association (PTA) contributes positively to the ethos and success of the school.

PPS provides multimedia classrooms, a fully equipped music room, a computer lab, a multimedia library and two beautiful playgrounds. The school offers a dynamic curriculum with the IB philosophy and practices at its core. Educators offer the best of the USA and UK curricula; while maintaining distinctly Caribbean and Caymanian characteristics. Spanish is our second language and is taught throughout the school.

With staff from six different countries and a student population representing sixteen different countries we are a multicultural school. Our students and staff embrace the cultural diversity and there is an ethos of tolerance and openness within the school. The school is supported by a team of Special Educational Needs specialist.

We are proud to be recognised as a center of teaching and learning excellence. We have a sound academic track record, and the students who leave our school go on to experience a high level of success at the secondary level. The skills and attitudes instilled at PPS allow them to achieve their full potential in later years.

Our academic excellence is mirrored in our success in sports and extracurricular programmes we have a strong record of success in fields such as athletics, football, netball, basketball, cricket, robotics and Festival of Arts. Easy access to the warm Caribbean Sea allows our students the joy of sailing and swimming.

We impact our community in varied ways by engaging in Service Learning programmes such as Feed our Future, the St. Baldrick's Foundation and Meals on Wheels.

Our Vision:

We provide a safe, positive and caring community which nurtures, guides and prepares our students for a future as global citizens. To take their place in a diverse and ever changing society; we will empower our students to become motivated, socially responsible critical thinkers for life.
