Choosing a school

Education in the Falkland Islands is free, compulsory to age 16, and follows the United Kingdom model. There are no international schools.

Two schools in Stanley serve students from ages 4 to 11, and ages 11 to 16. After school programs and care are sometimes available. Some older students board at a nearby hostel during the school year. Another school serves families that are stationed at the Mount Pleasant Royal Air Force base.
