VCP is an academically successful, fee-paying States school for boys aged 7-11. We offer up to 75 places in each of our four Key Stage 2 year groups.
We hold an assessment day every January that enables us to check a boy’s academic potential and approach to learning. We do everything we can to ensure this is the right school for them. There is a similar system for entry into Years 4 and 5.
The school fees at VCP are £2,042 per term or £6,126 per annum, which is excellent value for money compared to similar UK schools and more affordable and accessible for boys from all walks of life. We aim to offer an education to all talented young men in Jersey so if financing might affect your ability to attend then please get in touch.
Financial support for families
If your son has a passion for learning and is motivated to come to VCP and keen to work hard then we will welcome him. This includes helping with fees, if necessary, through our means-tested bursary schemes.
Two bursaries are available specifically to help your family pay all or part of the school fees at VCP, especially if your household income is below £60,000.
- The VC and VCP Bursary Fund
- The Foundation Bursary
Applications for financial assistance are considered after a successful applications process and once your son has been offered a place at the school.
To apply for a bursary or find out more, please contact Emily Oldridge, Headmaster's Secretary, on 01534 638217 or complete the following email form.
These are our 12 key policies. Please contact the school for all other policies of visit the States of Jersey Education website.
If you need to take your son out of school during term time, please submit an ABSENCE REQUEST form here, no later than 10 working days before it required.
We know the key to a successful education is a strong partnership between parents, students and the school so we warmly welcome both boys and their families.
We have an open door policy and encourage parents to be involved as much as they would like and are able. Your views, time and skills can really make a difference and further strengthen the school community in a variety of ways.
We encourage parents to:
- offer feedback via our Parent Community Discussion Groups and online surveys
- join our parent-teacher association Friends of Prep
- become an elected parent representative on the school's Board of Governors
- be a class or year representative, and organise enrichment activities for the boys and social events for parents
As well as parents’ evenings and open days, we run open class sharing sessions where parents can come and see a lesson in their son’s class. We also have a Parent Community Discussion Group which is held twice a term. Every parent will have an opportunity to take part during their son's time at VCP.
