An Elizabeth College Education

Elizabeth College, founded in 1563 by Queen Elizabeth I, is a selective day school with a broad ability range located in St Peter Port in Guernsey. One of the earliest members of the Heads’ Conference, it provides a challenging and highly stimulating academic and co-curricular programme in a co-educational environment.

Elizabeth College is more than just a school, it is a community. A strong partnership between student, parent and school staff is the key to ensuring our students are successful in their learning and make the most of all the opportunities on offer. The School encourages the development of well-rounded and confident individuals ready to enter an increasingly complex world, able to exercise responsibility and good judgement, with the skills to lead and work effectively with others.

The Elizabeth College curriculum is vibrant, progressive and stretching. Our staff are focused on helping all our students to learn, to grow and to be better than they were yesterday. This is reflected in our students’ examination performances and the successful careers of our alumni. But success goes beyond test scores and university acceptances; at Elizabeth College we nurture the whole child. Our school culture, our diverse offering of co-curricular activities and our comprehensive pastoral care instil in our students a set of core values that we hope will equip them for success for the rest of their lives.

Beyond the classroom, there are extensive opportunities for students to become involved in Sport, Music, Drama, STEM activities, trips and tours, the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme and many other activities.
