About Us

The Lannaman's Staff

The Lannaman's Preparatory School had its genesis  in September 1975 at Montgomery Avenue, Kingston 10. A Private Institution founded by its now Director, Marcia DeHaney, opened its doors with only two students. Miss DeHaney, a modest, devoted, patient, generous teacher nurtured and cared for those students meticulously. Soon her fame spread throughout the community and the school population mushroomed almost overnight.

Miss DeHaneyMiss DeHaney is a visionary and a self-motivated teacher and a stickler for discipline. She was determined to succeed and soon implemented the motto: "EXCELLENCE IN ALL THINGS". She then set about the task to mould young lives into Well rounded students.

During the years, the school’s enrolment expanded and the institution had to make its exodus from Montgomery Avenue to Margaret Villa and finally to its present location at 1 Terrence Avenue, Kingston 10. In 1996 the campus became over crowded and another property was acquired at 42 Montgomery Avenue. This property now accommodates the Kindergarten Department. With additional staffing the school developed rapidly and became Well recognized. That same year, the channing and vivacious Trudy Hardy (a past student of this noble institution) was appointed Principal and Marcia DeHaney its Director.

With a student enrolment of over 450 students and a staff complement of 30 teachers, Lannaman’s has become one of the best Preparatory Schools in the island. Its success in Academics, Sports and the Performing Arts is second to none. Its achievement in the common Entrance and G.S.A.T. Examinations over the years has been well documented and the school has participated in every imaginable competition offered to Preparatory Schools. Lannaman’s’ Past Students are in almost every profession in Jamaica and abroad.

Performances in Inter-Preparatory School Football, Track and Field, Cricket, Basketball, J.C.D.C. Festival of the Performing Arts (music, dance, speech and drama and traditional folk), Public Speaking Competitions, Debates and the School’s Challenge Quiz have made Lannaman’s Preparatory a household name. The trophies, certificates and accolades won are too numerous to mention.

The school’s motto lives on:



There are three houses (Thurilda (Red), Phillip (Blue) and Garth (White)) and each new student will be assigned to one upon registration.  They will remain in this house for the duration of school and are expected to develop house spirit and loyalty and participate in its projects and activities.
