About

Head Teacher’s Welcome

At JC Prep we aim to achieve quality and excellence in every aspect of school life. Our aspiration for all our students lies at the heart of our core values: ‘Aspire, Inquire, Excel and Belong’.

In our pursuit of excellence we aim to provide our students with engaging, dynamic learning experiences and continually review the strategies we use for promoting and monitoring the quality of learning and teaching and the attainment of our students. It is our objective to ensure that each child achieves his or her full potential at each stage of development. We welcome the support and involvement of parents and we believe it is essential to keep parents fully and clearly informed about the progress of their children.

We are proud to be part of the Jersey College system and we operate as one College with our Senior School (JCG) as well as working closely with Victoria College Preparatory School (VCP). We have high teacher expectations and with strong parental support our children achieve the best standards possible both in the academic and pastoral areas of the curriculum, preparing them for transfer to VCP (for boys at age 7) and to JC Senior School (for girls at age 11).

Choosing the right school to suit your child is vitally important. Here at JC Prep we ensure that the needs of the individual child are always paramount. Positive relationships form the strong foundations of our school community and are fundamental to achieving the very best education for all our students. Working in close partnership with parents, we aim to provide the best opportunities to enable students to excel in all aspects of school life.

Our ambition for all students at JC Prep:

We aim to nurture happy, confident, caring students, who enjoy positive relationships and show compassion and respect for others. We want students to grow as individuals, to feel valued and to forge a strong and supportive community that reaches out around the world.

We hope they will demonstrate a growing awareness about the choices they make and the impact these have on their environment.

We want to develop hardworking, independent learners and creative thinkers. Our students will be encouraged to take full advantage of opportunities and to aspire to the highest standards. We aim for our students to be inquisitive, ambitious and motivated in their approach to learning.

We want them to grow in independence, to be reflective in their thinking, to be eager for challenges and to be able to cope with setbacks.

Our goal is to prepare our students for life beyond JC Prep equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes for life-long learning.
