While acknowledged as separate institutions from Wolmer’s Girls, 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 schools more closely resemble British schools of the 1950s than of today, a trend that can be noted of the entire Jamaican schooling system.
The school offers a wide range of CSEC and CAPE subjects done at the fifth- and sixth-form levels respectively. It has been known for being the only all-boys school in Jamaica to be ranked in the top ten high schools on the island. The high schools have been known to perform well in the sciences.
