The Future Structure of Secondary and Post-16 Education

Our Proposals

The Education Department has published its eagerly anticipated proposals for the future structure of secondary and post-16 education, including the future funding of the grant-aided Colleges, selection at 11 and the size and number of secondary schools.

We are often told that our education system doesn't need changing but the reality is that the 11 plus, as a means of deciding which pupil goes to which secondary school, is not an appropriate way to determine the future of our children's secondary education. It fails to deliver equality of opportunity, fairness or the sort of social mobility that was originally intended.

At the heart of our proposals is the absolute commitment to ensure that all our young people are able to reach their full potential and perform at the highest levels possible. We must provide an education system that caters for all our children and young people and ensure that they can make valued and lasting contributions to our society and the wider world.

We accept that we will not be able to please everybody with our proposals. But we absolutely stand by our core values as highlighted in our vision. These values have been the driving force behind our proposals for the future structure of secondary and post-16 education.

We have looked at four areas:

  1. Admission to Secondary Education (including whether or not to retain some form of selection at 11)
  2. Post-16 Provision - the optimal means of delivery
  3. The future funding of the grant-aided Colleges and
  4. The optimal size and structure of the education estate.

You can find out more about our proposals by watching the video below.

A copy of our Policy Letter which will be debated by the States starting on 8th March plus all the appendices are all available to download below.

You can also access a copy of our Frequently Asked Questions.

Some questions have been asked about the responses to the Public Consultation. The following video aims to answer some of those questions.

We have also been asked some questions about how we plan to deliver our proposals and what the impact of delaying a decision would be. The following brief video below helps answer some of those questions.

We are holding three Public Meetings to present our proposals on Monday 8th and Monday 15th February at 7.30pm at St Sampson's High School and Monday 29th February at St Anne's School, Alderney, also at 7.30pm.
