Authored by States of Jersey and published on 23 February 2018.
Please could I have the headline GCSE figures (5 A* to C) including maths & English for the last five academic years 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 for all states funded private and state secondary schools on the Island, as well as the average for the Island in each of the years identified.
All Island results prior to 2017 are already published and are therefore absolutely exempt under Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. They can be found using the following link:
GCSE and equivalent results in Jersey
The publication for GCSE results in the academic year 2016/17 will be published the week beginning 7 March 2018, in line with the Department’s publication schedule and is therefore exempt under Article 36 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. The publication schedule can be viewed at the following link:

In 2017 a numeric grading system was introduced for GCSEs in English Language, English Literature and mathematics. Exam results in these three GCSE subjects moved to a 9 - 1 grading system, replacing A* - G. There is no exact correlation between the old letter grades, and the new numeric grades which means that comparisons with previous years becomes more difficult.
The table below lists the percentage of pupils that achieved 5 A* - C in 2013 - 2016 and 5 A* - C / 9 - 4 in 2017:
|Hautlieu ||97%||94% ||88% ||91%||98%|
|Jersey College for Girls||97%||99%||97% ||99%||97%|
|Le Rocquier||24%||45%||34%||30% ||33% |
|Les Quennevais||46%||35%||26%||38% ||55%|
|Victoria College ||94%||95%|| 95%||92%||98%|
*Prior to 2017, pupils needed to enter English literature and achieve a C or above in English language in order to achieve 5 A* - C including English and mathematics. In 2017, pupils could achieve a C / 4 in either language or literature, even if only one of the two was entered. This means that the figures for 2017 are not directly comparable to those for previous years.
The data above represents only States of Jersey maintained and fee-paying maintained schools. It does not include the private secondary schools, Beaulieu Convent School or De La Salle College.
