About The Ladies' College, Guernsey
"Fais ce que dois advienne que pourra" (Do what is right come what may)
We are a single sex girls school for 2½ to 18 year olds and have approximately 600 girls attending in total. At Sixth Form there is an established partnership with the local boys independent school, Elizabeth College, giving our students a co-ed experience in their academic subjects as well as some joint College co-curricular activities. There is a strongly supported house system that begins in the Junior school and continues to Sixth form with the students taking on roles of responsibility throughout the College.
The Ladies’ College was established in 1872 and has educated girls for almost 150 years, developing a strong academic reputation. We aim to be the best we can be and look to encourage, create and inspire. We operate on a single site and pupils from our Pre Preparatory Department and The Ladies' College, Melrose (our Preparatory School) are housed in separate buildings on the same campus as our Senior girls and the Sixth Form.
In the 21st Century, life is full of opportunity and challenges. Our aim at The Ladies’ College is to give each girl the confidence to develop, so they become young adults who are proactive, positive, caring and resilient. Academic achievement is important and we are proud of the results achieved by our students, yet there is also clear recognition that opportunities outside of the classroom are a vital part of a rounded education. They can help to develop self-esteem and a range of interests and opportunities to achieve and contribute to an individual’s well-being which is also an important part of today’s education for young people.
