“Online Registration for Primary School [P1] for the B2024/2025 school year opens on Monday, 26 February and will close on Friday, March 8,” the Department of Education announced today.

A Government spokesperson said, “Primary School Open Houses will be held on February 20, 21 and 22.

“Parents and guardians are encouraged to submit only fully completed applications. Online applications will be available as of 26 February, 2024 at and require the following:

  • A copy of the enrolling child’s birth certificate [passports cannot be accepted]
  • Proof of residential address of parent 1 – i.e. Utility bill [BELCO]/lease/ bank statement/internet that must be in parent 1′s name [A cell phone bill cannot be accepted as proof of residence]
  • Proof of guardianship – if the child is being registered by a person not listed on the birth certificate
  • Permission to reside in Bermuda is required to enroll
  • Identification of an exceptionality and/or disability if the child has or may have a particular education need, i.e. ASD, Dyslexia, etc.

Conditions for Primary School

“Children must celebrate their fifth birthday between 1 January 2024 and 31 December 2024, inclusive.

“Children under the prescribed age for compulsory education [as per paragraph 1] will not be enrolled in primary school.

“Children shall reside in the same zone as the primary school to which the application is made.

“Preference for enrolment into a particular school is given to the child who lives closest to the school within the designated zone boundary; therefore, proof of address is required [a copy of a lease or utility bill is acceptable. Note: Cell Phone Bill will not be accepted].

“However, preference may be given to the application of a child who, at the time of registration, has a sibling enrolled in [and who will attend] P1 to P5 [or P6 of a parish primary school] of the first choice primary school during the upcoming school year.

“Where a school is located close to the end of a zone boundary, priority may be given to a child who resides between the school and the zone boundary over children who may live closer but towards the middle of the zone.

“There must be sufficient space to accommodate the child per the permissible maximum enrolment.

“Primary schools are divided into the following zones:

Eastern Zone
