Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to the website for our unique island school. Sark School is a friendly place with a happy, family atmosphere providing education for all the island’s children from the age of 3.

The School leaving age in Sark is now 16 but historically many children have left the island before their GCSE's to continue their education in larger secondary schools.

Sark is a beautiful island, just 3½ miles long by 1½ miles wide with outstanding coastline and a rich variety of flora and fauna. Being car free it has unmade roads, numerous footpaths, cliffs, beaches and woods, an ideal place to explore on foot or by bicycle. Frequently lessons are taken out of the classroom, especially so every Wednesday when it is Forest School’s day for Class 1.

Being part of a small community, the children and school are an important part of daily life on the island and take part in all the key events throughout the year.

How the island should provide GCSE education is currently being debated and decisions will by Chief Pleas after a public consultation.

Meanwhile we hope you enjoy exploring our website and learning more about our wonderful school and unique island home.
