Our School

The West Indies Home Contractors (WIHCON) constructed the Ascot Primary School in Sector 1 North, Greater Portmore, St. Catherine. The school was named after a racetrack that was in the community.

The school had
its genesis on September 1, 1997. The Acting Principal was Mrs. Mobray Campbell, with a supporting staff of eleven (11) teachers. There were approximately four hundred (400) students enrolled in Grades 1-4. The school’s capacity was increased when Grade 5 was added in 1998 and a further increase in 1999 when Grade 6 came on stream.

On December 10, 2000 the school had its official opening. This was done by the then Minister of Education,
Burchell Whiteman. It was at this function that the Minister announced the appointment of Ms. Jean Fearon as Provisional Principal. Ms. Jean Fearon served as Principal from 2000 until 2012.

Presently we boost a staff of forty teachers, with principal, Mr. Mark Jackson, two vice principals; Mrs. Donna Mitchell-Jarrett and Mrs. Rose Marie Whittick plus our support staff. Ascot Primary epitomizes excellence and is dedicated to the development of the total person. In addition to regular academic work, student are encouraged to be involved in co-curricular activities.

The goal of striving for excellence was the pivotal point on which we started and have continued to impact on the lives of all we touch.
