Welcome from the Head of Upper School

I am delighted to present to you the Jersey College for Girls GCSE Prospectus for 2023-2024, containing information about the GCSE courses that we offer.  

The Year 9 Parents’ information evening and the GCSE Options process are intended to help you to make an informed choice about the subjects you wish to study at GCSE. JCG provides a curriculum which offers a breadth and balance, whilst retaining the academic rigour necessary for students to obtain the highest grades at GCSE. 

Year 10 sees the start of your GCSE years; without a doubt some of the most enjoyable and rewarding years of your life. You will continue subjects that you have enjoyed and in which you have flourished during the past three years. The next two years are vitally important, as you will take greater responsibility for your academic success, working with energy and dedication to achieve the best results you can, laying the foundations for further study. The experience you will build and the academic achievements you will gain will shape your future education and career. 

Our aim in Upper School is to support and encourage you, so that you derive enjoyment and fulfilment from your learning. A programme of events and experiences is designed to motivate you to take risks, to work as a team, to take on new challenges and to gain the confidence to find your place in the world. Upper School tutors and I are happy to support you and, with hard work and determination, you will go on to excel in your GCSEs. 

Finally, if you are currently studying at JCG we would love you to stay with us; however, for those of you who are currently elsewhere, I hope that this prospectus gives you a taste of life at JCG, and makes you want to visit us to find out more about the College. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  

Mr John Vibert
