Around 150 people attended a public meeting put on by Guernsey's Education Sport and Culture Committee (ESC) at Beau Sejour last night.

Deputy Paul Le Pelley, the President of ESC, outlined the 'three-school model' proposal for the future of secondary Education in the island.

Deputy Le Pelley said campaigners behind the 'two-school model' have not provided information on cost, location or a timescale - which he believes could take another three years before the island sees action under these plans.

We're pretty confident that our 'three-school model' is going to have the best outcomes for education in Guernsey...

We are ready to go, we know our model works, we're very, very confident it's going to go.
