In 1871, the Academy closed its doors when representatives from Scotland encouraged the Government of Jamaica to establish a Queen's College in Spanish Town. This institution also did not last long and very soon after it was again a case where the country was devoid of Government sponsored Secondary Education. In 1895, a Presbyterian Minister, Rev. Adam Thompson, and a Government representative for St. James and Trelawny, Hon. John Kerr, petitioned the Government to allocate 500 pounds for Secondary Education in Montego Bay. Hence, in 1896, the second city gave birth to Cornwall College which was at that time located on Barracks Road (site of the Public Works Office) and was called Montego Bay Government Secondary School. The school also excelled in sports and was named the top male institution in football (soccer), holding the famous Olivier Shield over 11 times in the sporting fraternity. Upon the inception of the schoolboy daCosta Cup competition, Cornwall College also displayed their talents and skills to grab a hold of the trophy in 1953, 55, 56, 58, 59, 63, 82, 83, 95, 2000, 2001 and 2016.
