Our Creative Curriculum Gets Results

At the end of their time at Provo Primary School children move on to new schools in the community.  There is an entrance examination for these schools.

We believe that our creative, hands on approach to learning, not only makes learning more meaningful, but also helps develop higher academic attainment.  Further contributing to our proven level of achievement is our individualized approach to learning,  this encourages children who excel in particular areas and allows each child to work to their strengths.

Our successful entrance exam results year after year prove this to be the case.

Entrance Exam Results 2016

We would like to congratulate all our Year 6 students for being successfully accepted into schools of their choice as they move on from Provo Primary. 

‘Outstanding post-primary entrance exam results’   

In their Entrance Exams, they were awarded:

  • 9 of the top 13 places at the British West Indies Collegiate School.
  • 15 of the top 16 places at the TCI Middle School.

We are very proud of each of them and their personal achievements.  We know that they have worked extremely hard towards this goal and their efforts have clearly been rewarded.

Thank you and well done to Mr. Jason, our incredible Year 6 teacher, and to all of the teachers who have guided the children through their learning journey throughout the school.  We also thank all their families for supporting them throughout their primary years. Congratulations on a team effort of dedication, hard work, preparation, support and a belief in what you can achieve when you do your personal best!

But exams don’t tell the whole story…

Exam results are a useful benchmark to ensure that children are at the level necessary to tackle post primary education, but we always stress that they do not assess all of what makes a child special and unique. There are a variety of intelligences and all of our Year 6 children are intelligent in unique ways. Some speak two languages, some play sports or love art. Others have a natural talent for music or drama. They are polite, well-rounded, caring, confident, creative, inquisitive, individuals. There is no “exam” in the world that allows them to show all of the amazing and incredible things that makes them who they are.

We are all very proud of who you are and what you bring to our world, and look forward to seeing who you will become in the future!

Entrance Exam Results 2016

In 2016 we congratulated all 9 of our Year 6 students on their successful post-primary entrance exam results.   All of the children passed every exam taken and were accepted into the schools of their choice – either the British West Indies Collegiate, the TCI Middle School or at other international schools.

Six of our Year 6 students took local school Year 7 entrance exams.  All 6 students were offered a place at TCI Middle School out of only 12 available places.

In total, 37 children from the Turks and Caicos sat the Year 7 British West Indies Collegiate exams for 9 available places.  We were extremely pleased that all 5 of our students who sat the exam were offered a place.

The remaining three of our Year 6 students were planning to leave the island to go to international schools elsewhere.  We congratulated them on their success with the enrolment process for these schools.

Our Long-Standing Exam Success

We have gained the top position in the Year 7 TCI Middle School entrance exams for the past 5 years in a row (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015).  Last year our students were allocated the top 8 positions, with a total of 10 of the 12 available places awarded to Provo Primary students.

We have gained the top position in the Year 7 British West Indies Collegiate School (BWIC) entrance exams in 2009, 2011, 2012,  and 2013.  Last year our students were allocated 6 of the top 10 positions, including 2nd,  3rd and 4th.

Sometimes, children enter the Year 6 at the BWIC.  We gained the top position in the Year 6 entrance exams  in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
