Secondary school transfer process

28 January 2016

​Jersey’s 10 and 11 year olds take their first step towards secondary school next week when parents are asked to confirm their place at one of the four States 11-16 schools.

Parents of children who are currently in Year 6 (the final year at a States’ primary) have been sent a form the Education Department offering them a place in their catchment area secondary school – either Le Rocquier, Grainville, Haute Vallée or Les Quennevais. They are asked to respond as soon as possible to:

  1. Accept the place offered
  2. Request a place in a different 11-16 school and give a reason for the request
  3. Decline the place offered because a place has been accepted in the fee paying sector

Parents should return the completed form directly to their catchment school by the deadline of 06 February.

If children are currently in a fee-paying primary school, parents will not routinely be offered a place in one of the 11-16 secondary schools. If they wish their child to go to Le Rocquier, Grainville, Haute Vallée or Les Quennevais, they should contact the Education Department as soon as possible.

Also, to avoid duplication, parents will not be offered a place at a States secondary if they have accepted a place in a fee-paying secondary school.

Requests for out-of-catchment places are considered by the Education Department and parents will be informed of decisions around the beginning of March. If necessary, there is an appeals process. Appeal hearings will be held at the end of March.
