Jersey pupils access to A-levels is very poor

Options for pupils wanting to sit A-Levels in state schools are not good enough says the education minister.

Pupils at the four 11-16 Jersey state schools have a choice of either going to the 14-18 selective school Hautlieu or paying to do A-Levels.

Deputy Patrick Ryan said he wants to make access to A-levels for these pupils easier.

He said: "The key to giving access at A-Level would be to try to develop the offering at Highlands as well."

In a BBC education debate, Deputy Ryan said he wanted to make it easier for pupils across the board to do both A-Levels and vocational courses.

Jersey's Director of Education, Mario Lundy, said there needed to be a more co-ordinated approach to vocational teaching.

The department is reviewing the way the island's selective schools system works.
