Codrington College is the oldest Anglican Theological College in the Western Hemisphere. It was established by the will of General Christopher Codrington who died in 1710.

On 9th September 1745, Codrington College was opened as grammar school, this was the first step along a road that is marked with commendable academic achievements. By the year 1829, Codrington had become a full-fledged College, a step closer to the realization of the hope of its founder Christopher Codrington, whose desire was to have an academic institution in which persons could be trained in 'Physics and Chirugery as well as Divinity.'

In 1831 the College was almost totally destroyed by huricane, the present building was constructed. It was referred to by Dr. Bindley, the then Principal, as the "Oxford adapted to the tropics". (Codrington College by Anselm Genders)

Since its affiliation to the University of Durham, England in 1875, it has maintained high academic standards.

In 1955 with the opening of the University Colege of the WestIndies of the West Indies, the Classical Faculty of the College was closed.

The College became an affiliate of The University of the West Indies in 1965.

The College is in the Diocese Of Barbados; the present Bishop is The Right Rev'd Rufus Brome. It is situated in beautiful and peaceful surroundings on the Atlantic Coast of Barbados.

The College offers training for candidates to the sacred Priesthood. In addition the College continually seeks ways in which to serve the Church and the wider community. The College has recently moved towards a Masters Degree in Theology.
