History of Wolmer's

Wolmer's Schools, located in Kingston, Jamaica consists of Wolmer's Pre-School, Wolmer's Preparatory School and two high schools: Wolmer's Trust High School For Girls and Wolmer's Trust High School for Boys. While acknowledged as separate institutions, each school carries the same crest and motto, "Age Quod Agis", a Latin phrase which translates to 'whatever you do, do it to the best of your abilities'. The school is the oldest high-school in the Caribbean, being established in 1729 by John Wolmer.

The Wolmer's Schools are considered among the Caribbean's most prestigious schools, and the most prestigious in Jamaica, with traditional British-style uniform and a strong Christian ethos. The schools more closely resemble British schools of the 1950s than of today, a trend that can be noted of the entire Jamaican schooling system.

In Loving Memory

Eric Coleridge Barnett, the longest serving former headmaster of Wolmer’s Boys’ School in Kingston, died yesterday, leaving thousands of past students in mourning. Barnett, affectionately called 'Barnie Rubble' by his students, was principal from 1979 to 1998. meaning the largest percentage of living alumni passed through the Heroes Circle gates during his tenure.

Steven Gooden, president of the Wolmer's Old Boys' Association, said Barnett was an old boy himself, graduating from Wolmer's in the 1950s and going on to pursue tertiary education at the University College of the West Indies (Jamaica) and Richmond College (London). "He taught history at various educational institutions in Jamaica, the United Kingdom, Belize and Scotland, before returning to transform the noble institution that we are all part of today," Gooden said in a message to Old Boys'.
Quoting another former Wolmerian, Gooden said, "Mr Barnett was the definition of Wolmerian presence and poise. We all knew it, we all respected it and we all feared it because we knew it came from a pure place... ." In the meantime, Wolmerian Bruce James, president of the world renowned MVP track club, who was a student during Barnett’s time as principal, told The Gleaner yesterday that he owes a piece of his success to Barnett.
“Mr Barnett was my headmaster. He not only appointed me prefect, but he also appointed me deputy head boy. Years later, when Stephen Francis, Paul Francis, David Riley and myself were helping the Wolmer’s Boys’ School track team, he was a big supporter of us," James said. “We took the school to various track-and-field events, including the Penn Relays. When we decided to form the MVP track-and-field club, our very first training base was at Wolmer’s Boys’ School and that was thanks to Mr Barnett." Barnett, who was 80, also taught at Knox College, where he served as vice principal from 1974 to 1979.
