The Education System in Guernsey is currently going through an exciting period of transformation. This is the largest, boldest and most dynamic change the public education system has seen in recent years but will enable all students to have the widest possible range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities.

In January 2018, the States of Guernsey agreed substantial reforms of secondary and post-16 education. This will see the four existing secondary schools replaced by two 11 to 18 colleges, forming one organisation - one school. The following bullet points summarise the future structure:

At present our secondary schools vary greatly in size. In contrast, the two 11 to 18 colleges will be of a very similar size with a similar number of students in each college. The number of students in each college will be in line with the average size of the highest-attaining comprehensive schools nationally, almost all of which also have sixth forms. All students will have the widest possible range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities and teachers in Guernsey will be able to work across all key stages in secondary education, which will maximise the chances of developing, recruiting and retaining great teachers. More information on the plans for the 11-18 school can be found at www.gov.gg/secondaryschool

The post-16 phase will provide a single sixth form operating across the two colleges, allowing for a broad range of subject choices. Technical, professional and vocational studies will be part of a single, integrated organisation called The Guernsey Institute. More information on the plans for further and higher education can be found at www.gov.gg/fhtransformation
