Saltus Grammar School was founded in 1888 thanks to a generous gift from Samuel Saltus who bequeathed the funds for the building of a boys’ school in Bermuda. The school thrived for decades and evolved to include Cavendish Hall in 1972, a second campus devoted to young learners. Many facility enhancements were added over the years, including science labs, libraries, music and art facilities and a 25 metre swimming pool.
In 1966, post desegregation in Bermuda, Saltus widened its mandate for diversity and became one of the first multi-racial private schools in Bermuda. In the 1990s Saltus became fully co-educational. The result has been that students enjoy a diverse, real-world learning environment that elevates all.
Most recently, the Head of Saltus, Deryn Lavell, and the Board of Trustees, have developed a new strategic plan, The Key, designed to take Saltus into a new era of innovation and growth.
The history of Saltus is as fascinating as the history of Bermuda itself. To learn more, click here for the full story.
