Jersey has been home to a number of military academies, one of the least well-known and last surviving being the Army Technical School which was housed at St Peter's Barracks, adjacent to the recently opened Airport, as late as 1939.

A report and pictures of an inspection by the Lieut-Governor of the day was published in The Islander early in the year.

His Excellency, Sir H de C Martelli, Lieut-Governor of the Island of Jersey, inspected the Army Technical School at St Peter’s Barracks on Tuesday 21 February 1939.
It was a fine, sunny morning, and the boys marched, manoeuvred and stood like guardsmen on parade.
They are being trained as tradesmen and artisans, and after their graduation will be drafted to different branches of our modern mechanised army as experts in their various trades.
