St Jago High School (formerly Beckford & Smith) in Spanish Town, St Catherine, Jamaica, founded in 1744, is one of the oldest, continuously operated schools in the Western Hemisphere. It is renowned for graduating some of Jamaica's senior military officers, world class cricketers, academic scholars, performing artists, and Olympic athletes.
St Jago was founded in 1744 under the will of Colonel Peter Beckford, Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica. It began as the Free School of St. Jago de la Vega and later amalgamated two schools, Beckford and Smith (a boy's school) and Cathedral Girls High. Its grounds were commonly known as Ravensworth.
