All areas of Guernsey’s Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre have been graded as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’ in a recent inspection.
The inspection, carried out by Terry Carr Consultancy using the Education Scotland inspection framework, found that students were ‘well prepared for the world outside and beyond the classroom’.
It also described them as respectful towards one another and staff, indicating a “strong sense of community” across the school.
Staff were also praised for their support in meeting the needs of all students, and the work of the leadership team was identified as “very effective”.
I am delighted that the report highlights not only the outstanding progress our students make in their academic studies, but also in their personal development and wider achievements in areas such as the Duke of Edinburgh Awards programme.
It is particularly pleasing that the whole school team has been recognised for their hard work, personalised care and commitment to the young people in our school over what has been a terrific journey of continuous improvement for the school.
– Kieran James, Acting Headteacher
On behalf of the Committee I thank and congratulate all concerned on a report which offers huge encouragement for the next stage of our educational journey towards the establishment of one 11-18 school and its two colleges each of which will have its own integral sixth form.
– Deputy Richard Graham, Vice President of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture
