Anguilla

Overview

Anguilla is a group of islands and cays in the Leeward Islands chain in the Caribbean Sea east of Puerto Rico. The population is 14,108 and the literacy rate is 95%.

The first inhabitants of Anguilla were Amerindians who arrived from South America. The first European settlers were British who arrived from St. Kitts in 1650. Most of the current citizens of Anguilla are descendants of slaves who were brought to the island in the 18th century. In the early 19th century, Anguilla was incorporated into St. Kitts and Nevis, but became an independent colony in 1969. In 1980, it became a British Overseas Territory that is led by a governor who is responsible to the British Crown.

Primary Education

There are 6 primary schools on Anguilla. Primary school is 7 years and begins at age 5. No credential is awarded upon completion of primary school.
