It is hot and humid in the Coastal areas in summer; while it is hot and dry in the interior with the exception of the higher mountains, which enjoy a moderate climate throughout the year. Rainfall is generally light and irregular.

- Able to demonstrate outstanding standards of teaching and learning.
