Key Information

Jersey values a high standard of education and the island’s GCSE and A level results are consistently equivalent to the upper quartile of the UK education authorities. School places are offered to children at the beginning of the school year in which their fifth birthday falls. There are three types of schools in Jersey:

  • free States of Jersey schools
  • fee-paying States of Jersey schools
  • private fee-paying schools (fees can be as little as a third of those in the UK)
