The Gambian Education System

Nursery schools & classes Nursery education is not really part of the Gambian state system, Many nurseries are privately run, though some nursery classes are attached to Lower Basic and Basic Cycle Schools. There can be up to three 'Grades' in nursery schools, which are referred to as N1, N2 and N3.

Lower Basic Schools (LBS) (Also known as Primary Schools) These provide education for 7 to 13 year olds, in Grades 1 to 6. There are both state run and independent schools.

Upper Basic Schools (UBS) (Also know as Junior Secondary Schools) These provide education for 13 to 16 year olds, in Grades 7 to 9. Again there are both state run and independent schools.

Basic Cycle Schools (BCS) These schools are mainly in rural areas. They combine both LBS and UBS with all Grades from 1 to 9.

Senior Secondary Schools (SSS) (Also known as High Schools) These are equivalent to UK Sixth Form Colleges, and provide education for 16 to 19 year olds, in Grades 10 to 12.

Further Education Tertiary education in The Gambia is provided by the University of the Gambia, and a number of other post-secondary institutions including the Gambia College (GC), the Gambia Technical Training Institute (GTTI), the Management Development Institute (MDI) and the Gambia Telecommunication and Multi-Media Institute (GTMI), which all provide degree level courses. There are also many Skills Training Centres which provide training in practical, technical and commercial subjects.
