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. To ensure this is a positive process the Headteacher and Senior Management Team will begin a dialogue with prospective parents and their son. We hope to be able to get to know you and your son well, to assess whether his needs and aspirations fit best with what we can offer.
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 a conditional offer of a place will be made at De La Salle Senior School. (This offer is conditional upon De La Salle Senior School being the only choice for secondary education). In order to gain admission to De La Salle Senior School for boys from external primary schools we request that parents complete the registration form and provide us with their son’s two most recent school reports. An interview will be scheduled with the Headteacher four terms before the due entry date.
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, the next step is the Interview which will be arranged at a mutually convenient time by the Admissions officer. As part of the interview the Headteacher or a member of the Senior Management Team will show you and your son around the Senior School. Following this interview we will notify prospective parents of our decision. 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.
