In pursuance of the aim above, the policy of the school is controlled by the Diocesan Education Board on behalf of the Synod of the Jamaica Church.
The Queen’s Preparatory School is made up of two departments – a Kindergarten Department and a Junior Department which cater for children up to the age of thirteen. In addition, there is a Special Remedial Unit which caters to children with special education needs.
The Queen’s Preparatory School was founded in 1954. The Diocese of Jamaica purchased premises at 119 Constant Spring Road and converted what had been the Doric Hotel into a school which was officially opened by the late Archbishop of York, Dr. Cyril Garbett, on Monday, January 11, 1954. The school was named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II who was crowned in 1953.
