Admissions process

Les Quennevais school is an 11-16 School serving the Western parishes. Designed for 450 students, it currently has in excess of 700 on roll, the result of popularity with students and parents combined with significant population growth in the West of the island. Please be advised we are an oversubscribed school with a waiting list for some year groups.

School places in Jersey are allocated centrally by the Department of Children Young People Education and Skills (CYPES). You will automatically be offered a place at your catchment secondary school if your child is at a States’ primary school (unless they are going to a fee paying secondary school).

The catchment area currently consists of the Parishes of St Ouen, St Mary, St Peter, St Brelade and southern St Lawrence. The offer of a place will be sent to you by email at the end of January when your child is in Year 6. You can request a place at a different secondary school by completing the out of catchment request online form.

Because of the pressure on space the CYPES Department is unlikely to consider applications for places from outside the catchment area except in exceptional circumstances. If a place is requested for a child in a year group which is already full students may be allocated on a waiting list.

Please follow the link below to view the Education Department's information on this process. Whether you are taking up a place at Les Quennevais or not we ask that you return your form as soon as possible.

Parents who wish to enroll their child at other times should apply via CYPES using the form available at applying for a school. If a place is available at Les Quennevais School a CYPES Department officer will forward your details onto us. We will then arrange to contact you for an induction meeting.
