Drax came to Jamaica from Barbados in 1721 and left money in his will to establish a charity school in St. Ann. There were some delay and legal proceedings before the money was handed over to the St. Ann Vestry. In 1806 Walton Pen was bought for the site of the school, and a year later another act of Legislature gave the school the name, “The Jamaica Free School”. The buildings on Old Hope Road were opened on 9 July, 1885, and the first classes here took place in September of the same year. By the 1930’s, with an expanded student population, J.C. was actually functioning as an established high school. This role was formalized in 1957, with the introduction of the Common Entrance system and the democratization of the Jamaican secondary education system. From 1902 to 1967, Jamaica College functioned as a boarding institution. Today, as a day school, it boasts students from a wide cross-section of the society. Over the years it has nurtured a rich tradition in athletic and academic fields. Its Old Boys continue to play important roles in the religious, political, business and professional services of our country. The school’s rich history continues to be written by present students, who respond to its motto, “Fervet Opus in Campis”. Jamaica College has a rich sporting history.
