The Gordon Greenidge Primary School was officially opened on the July 8th 1993 by the then Minister of Education, Mr. Cyril Walker. The school was built to facilitate the amalgamation of the St. Boniface Primary School and the Black Bess Primary School.
Named after the world famous Barbadian and West Indian cricketer, Cuthbert Gordon Greenidge, the school is located in Bakers, St. Peter but has a mailing address of Upper Rock Dundo, St. James, and caters to the educational needs of the children from the surrounding districts of Sion Hill, Carlton, Rock Dundo, Bakers, Black Bess, Mangrove and Rock Hall.
The first principal of the school was Mrs. Lorna Williams, who was the principal of the Black Bess Primary School at the time of the amalgamation. Mrs. Wiliams retired shortly after the official opening of the Gordon Greenidge Primary School, and the post of principal was assumed by Mrs. Grace Barnes, who has since retired. The present principal is Ms. Julia Taitt.
On its inception, the roll of the Gordon Greenidge Primary School was approximately two hundred and twenty-five with a teaching staff of sixteen inclusive of the principal. These numbers have risen, and to date the student roll is three hundred plus and the teaching staff is eighteen inclusive of the principal.
The school stands by its affirmation, which states, “I am beautiful, I am one of God’s masterpieces. I am, therefore I can, therefore I will succeed. Whatever I can conceive and believe, I can achieve” and each child is encouraged to give of his or her best.
