Victoria College has been serving the Island since 1852, delivering high quality education to boys from Year 3 to Sixth Form and helping them to build successful futures.
We have a thriving Preparatory School that opened in 1922 where 300 boys (aged 7 to 11) from Years 3 to 6 have access to a huge range of exciting opportunities and educational experiences.
The boys continue to their secondary education at the College from Year 7 to Year 11, when they take GCSE examinations, and then on to our unique Sixth Form in Years 12 and 13 for A levels.
Victoria College aims to create well rounded, resilient young men who have skills, attitudes and values to be successful individuals who make a positive contribution to society.
The aims of Victoria College are:
To maintain a safe, happy and caring environment based on mutual respect and tolerance.

As we enter World Autism Awareness Week (30th March - 5th April), we thought it would be a good idea to share some top tips from The National Autistic Society, that will help us to provide a school environment and a society that works for autistic people. The National Autistic Society has various activities and information for you to explore with a goal of raising awareness of autism. Please visit their website for more information! Top tips: https://www.autism.org.uk/~/media/nas/get-involved/waaw/a4_5_big_things_tips.ashx?la=en-gb Website: https://www.autism.org.uk/get-involved/world-autism-awareness-week.aspx
Heard the saying - Don't judge a book by its cover? Have you ever chosen a book just from reading the first line? On world book day Year 5 picked their top 10 choices from just the first line. Rather than finding out the winners and spoiling the surprise, the teachers ordered them all and luckily 5B's arrived in time for the school closures. So Mrs Bull wrapped them, writing just the first line on the front of the mystery package. The boys selected this morning and were delighted with their choices. Reading these will be a great way to pass some time over the next few weeks! #aspirational #welovereading
It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback from parents and students, especially at such a difficult time. Our staff are working really hard to ensure your son has the support he needs. We would like to share some of the feedback we have recently received: "It is such a horrible time for everyone and the lovely messages some of the teachers have put on SMHW to the boys have really meant a lot. The communication from school has been excellent and I don't underestimate how much care and attention has gone into this and will continue to in the coming weeks." "I know that right now you are probably getting all sorts of crazy emails from parents so I just wanted to say thank you from us as a family instead. I have been very impressed with how College has handled it all and I am doing my best as a parent to do what I'm supposed to. I would just like to thank all the admin team, teachers and management team at this time on the clear communication and for continuing to try and provide education whilst also providing support and reassurance. So thank you..." "A huge thank you to all at Victoria College. This week's home learning has gone really smoothly. I've hardly been needed, only when something went wrong! Thank you for enabling our children to carry on learning whilst staying safe - Keep up the good work!!" "Thank you for all that you and the rest of the Victoria College team are doing. We are very grateful for the work coming through." "Overall I have been hugely impressed with the efforts of teachers, all of whom are facing similar family pressures and new working arrangements, to ensure that boys are being set work in a timely fashion with, importantly, instructions on how to submit completed work for marking and feedback. In addition, all teachers we have contacted have been superb in answering queries in a speedy fashion to resolve any problems."

We hope that all our students, parents and staff are keeping safe and healthy during the Coronavirus outbreak and Jersey lockdown. There are a range of Academic Enrichment activities for all subjects and ages now on SMHW for boys and their families. We hope that this helps everyone stay motivated and happy during this difficult time.
