Harrison College is a co-educational grammar school (secondary school) in Bridgetown, Barbados. Founded in 1733, the school takes its name from Thomas Harrison, a Bridgetown merchant, who intended it to serve as "A Public and Free School for the poor and indigent boys of the parish". Even in the Nineteenth Century it was recognised as perhaps the most prestigious secondary school in the British West Indies, attracting boys from neighbouring islands, including Pelham Warner who later went on to become the "Grand Old Man" of English cricket. Described as "The Eton of Barbados", since Barbados' independence in 1966, five out of Barbados's seven Prime Ministers have been alumni of Harrison College, among whom are also numbered the national poet Kamau Brathwaite and Alan Emtage the co-inventor of Archie search engine which is the ancestor of all modern internet search engines. It was an all-boys school for most of its history, with girls admitted to the Sixth Form in 1977, and to the lower forms two years later. Since the 1960s, no fees have been attached to study at Harrison College, but entry is by a competitive national examination.
