Westwood High School was founded in 1882 and is the only all-girls school in Trelawny. They are also the only school in Jamaica that carries the tradition of wearing hats. That makes them unique and outstanding wherever they go. To compliment their unique attire, the “girls in the hats” also stand out academically.
