From its foundation in 1917, De La Salle College Jersey, has developed to provide a Christian education for those families who desire it. We have always welcomed boys of other denominations and faiths. Indeed the College was ecumenical before ecumenism featured in the priorities of the Christian Church. Choosing a school can be a daunting prospect. We recognise that it is vitally important that you choose the right school for your son. As part of our admissions process, we ensure prospective parents and their son have an opportunity to meet with a member of our Senior Management Team. We are always keen to ensure De La Salle College is able to meet all needs and aspirations and that families have an opportunity to learn as much as possible about our wonderful education provision.
De La Salle is a non-selective College and does not operate an entrance examination system. The Primary School has two key entry points at Reception (aged 4) and Year 3 (aged 7). We do also accept boys at other times if there is availability in the appropriate Year group. We aim to keep each class to a maximum of 24 boys. Boys who already attend De La Salle primary school will be given an opportunity to attend an open evening four terms before the due entry date. Following this an offer of a place will be made at De La Salle Senior School. In order to gain admission to De La Salle Senior School for boys from external primary schools we request that parents complete a registration form. A meeting will be scheduled with a member of our Senior Management Team once the registration form has been completed to share further information about our school and the admissions process, and to ensure that the school is fully equipped to cater for any educational needs. An opportunity to tour the school will also be offered.
Parents may register their son at any age. The completion of a registration form and the payment of the £50 administration fee do not guarantee a place. When the number of registrations for a particular year reaches capacity, the year list will be closed and a waiting list will be brought into operation.
Following completion of a registration form, you will receive written confirmation of this via a formal letter. A meeting will then be arranged at a mutually convenient time by the Admissions officer. As part of the meeting, you will be offered the opportunity to tour the Senior School and find out more about our sporting and academic facilities. Following this meeting, we will notify prospective parents of our decision whether we are able to offer a place. Parents of boys with Educational Needs may be asked to attend a further interview to assess whether De La Salle can provide appropriate support before a decision is made.
We endeavour to make the transfer to De La Salle College, whether at Senior or Primary level as smooth as possible. A joining pack of detailed information, such as term dates and uniform, is sent to parents prior to entry. If you have any questions at any stage, please contact the Admissions officer who will be happy to help.
