In 2016, before the election, I wrote a short paper detailing my position regarding our Bailiwick’s education policy. I developed the paper further in November 2016 and circulated it before the divisive November 30th debate on whether to end selection at 11.
My vision for our education policy entitled Equality of Quality Proposal contains my reasoning for supporting ending selection and developing three secondary schools including the rebuild of the La Mare de Carteret Secondary School.

As Vice President of the Committee for Education, Sport and Culture, under then President Deputy Paul Le Pelley, I helped to develop the Policy Letter proposing three secondary schools as instructed by the Assembly.
However, this proposal was rejected by the Assembly on January 19th, 2018 after some of the ugliest, underhanded political ‘games’ I have ever had the misfortune to witness.
Thus, started the 1-school on 2-sites fiasco under the new President for Education, Sport and Culture, Deputy Matt Fallaize. A Fiasco which has already cost Guernsey tax-payers millions of pounds and untold stress to students, parents, teachers and support staff. A fiasco which is still unresolved.
