Record number of former Quennevais students win university places
by Jeff Hathaway

Former Quennevais students who went on to study at Haulieu, Victoria College , JCG and and other schools, have recently won university places following record examination results.

The number of students leaving Quennevais for higher education and attaining university places has been steadily increasing over the years.

One group of ex-Quennevais students from Hautlieu due to start at university at the end of September told La Baguette: “Quennevais was a tremendous school, and we doubt that any of us would have done so well had it not been for the teaching we received there. It certainly prepared us well. The Quennevais staff, and particularly headmaster Mr Thorp, should feel just as proud as we do to have won places at uni. We would like to thank them all”

La Baguette contacted John Thorp for his comments. He replied:

“There are three points in our former students careers when we particularly hear good news. One is when they get their GCSE results (and this year’s results were the best ever); secondly is when they head off to University, and we are delighted that so many have been offered places, or into the world of work, and thirdly, when they graduate.

We are just beginning to hear news of the class of 2003 who are beginning to graduate, and I congratulate all those who have earned very good degrees. Of course, some of that year group have followed distinctly different paths such as Matt Banahan in his rugby career at Bath and for England”

Connétable Mike Jackson commented:

“The youth of St. Brelade have shown themselves as very able and talented and we should be extremely proud of their achievements. Les Quennevais School delivers a very high standard of education, and I am sure I speak for many when I say we are indeed fortunate to have a school that can generate such positive and genuine comments from its ex-students”
