A co-curriculum includes arts, music, physical education, and technology. Emphasis is also given to preventive education in life skills, drug awareness, and guidance/counseling.
Education is free and compulsory for students between the ages 5 and 15. The Anguillan education system is based primarily on the British system of education and instruction is given in English, the official language.

The British government is conscious of the deficiencies in the education system and is is making efforts towards reforming and improving it. The literacy rate in Anguilla is 95 percent.

Primary Education

The Anguillan education system is based largely on the British model, and is free for all, although it is only compulsory from an age 5 to 15, which heralds the end of lower secondary school. The first 6 years are spent at primary school, where the core curriculum is arts, mathematics, social studies, and physical education. Co-curriculum choices include music, arts, and technology.

Middle Education

The Anguillan lower secondary school program which is academic in nature, takes 3 years to complete. This often marks the point where jobs take priority over studying further.

Secondary Education

There is one secondary (comprehensive) school located in the capital city known as The Valley. Here students study for 4 years before writing their Caribbean Examination Council version of O-Levels. Should they achieve 4 passes including English and Math, then they may remain on for a further 2 years to complete their A-Levels that are worth credits at most American universities.

Vocational Education

The comprehensive school also provides pre-vocational training in music, expressive creative & industrial arts, home economics and hotel professions. Adult education is receiving on-going attention under management of a national coordinator too.

Tertiary Education
