Share this page

In November 2016, the States Assembly reiterated its support for ending the 11+ selection process and moving to an all-ability secondary school system from September 2019.

For current primary school pupils (those in States maintained schools) this means:

The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture intends that all pupils selected through the 11+ process to attend the Grant-Aided Colleges as special placeholders in September 2017 and September 2018, will continue to have that special place funded by the States until the end of their time at that College (including sixth form if they choose to stay on).

The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture intends that all pupils selected through the 11+ process to attend the Grammar School in September 2017 and September 2018 will continue to be educated within a selective intake until they reach the end of Year 11.

Pupils placed at Le Murier, Les Voies or the Communication and Autism bases will continue to be assessed and allocated places in the same way as now.

Pupils attending St Anne's School in Alderney who are currently in Year 4 or below will continue their secondary education at St Anne's. Those currently in Year 5 and Year 6 may be selected for a place at the Grammar School or Grant-Aided Colleges.

The Committee intends to:

The Committee is confident that the States will make a decision on the future structure of secondary and post-16 education, including any consequent school closures or rebuilds, by the end of 2017.
