Principal's Welcome

HeadmasterWelcome to our website. It is designed to give a flavour of life here at JCG, provide information to our community and take a snapshot of the myriad of varied activities that take place each day in college.

Founded in 1880, JCG has been at the forefront of girls' education in Jersey for over 125 years and has a well deserved reputation for academic excellence and service to the island community.

Our students thrive on expert teaching, state of the art facilities and a vast range of extra-curricular, enrichment and expedition activities. They are enterprising, friendly and ambitious and they have wonderful purpose, energy and sense of service to others. Our staff care and are dedicated, creative and talented. Our exceptional academic results are a testimony to the personal and collective success of all at JCG. From here, our students go on to study at good universities, both in the United Kingdom and across the world.

Each day we strive to deliver the very best educational experience for our students. This experience should deliver outstanding academic achievement and, more importantly, nurture someone who is happy, well mannered and able to find fulfilment in one’s service to others. We want your daughter’s time at JCG to be a chapter in her life she is able to look back upon with happiness and pride and see how her mind and sensibility evolved to create a person capable of forging a successful and rewarding life. In short, we strive to develop her understanding of herself and the positive impact she can make on the world.
Inevitably, a website can only partially reflect the reality of college life, so I would encourage you to visit us, meet our students and staff, and experience the warmth, vitality and ethos of intellectual curiosity that is JCG.
It is a privilege to lead this remarkable school.
