Schools & Nurseries

We will be able to advise and assist with ascertaining which school or nursery is the best option for your child(ren) and answer any questions you might have regarding the schools available, the academic year, catchment areas and assist with enrolment procedures if required.  Broadly, the schools on the island are as follows:

State Schools

There are 32 primary schools and 5 regional secondary schools. There is a continuing programme of building renewal and sixth form centres have been added in all of the secondary schools over the past decade.

Independent Schools

King William's College, founded in 1833, is a co-educational, day and boarding school set in the beautiful safe haven of Castletown in the Isle of Man. Located on two sites, the Senior School is situated very close to the Airport, while primary age children attend the Buchan School less than a mile away.

Further and Higher Education

Over 50% of young people in the Isle of Man choose to enter the sixth form and well over 30% join the Isle of Man College of Further and Higher Education.

Vocational education courses are available on either a full or part-time basis as well as a range of degrees and higher degrees, including MBA, to meet the Island's education and training needs at many different levels.


There are many nurseries all over the Island and which one you choose will largely depend upon in which part of the Island you reside. We can, however offer practical advice about local nurseries and how they compare in terms of what they offer.
