Welcome to Carisbrooke College

MatthewParrBurmanIt gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Island Innovation Federation. We are an extensive learning community, situated in Newport. Our thriving Federation encompasses Medina College, Carisbrooke College and our VI form campus. We are increasingly proud of the close collaborative working relationship that exists between all three establishments, where we are able to share an array of expertise for the benefit of over 2,000 students. A large number of students choose to study with us and join us from all over the Isle of Wight and that simple fact should tell you something about what a great experience it is to be part of our family of schools.


Each College has its own Head of School, with Karen Begley in that role at Medina, Rob Maddox at Carisbrooke and Dave Mumford at our VI form campus. In my role as Executive Headteacher, I work with all three establishments as we seek to use the expertise of our Federated Leadership Team for the benefit of all of our students and staff.

We are always welcoming when visitors wish to come and see us and we look forward to seeing you soon. You will not be disappointed.

Matthew Parr-Burman
Executive Headteacher

Robert MaddoxThe staff of Carisbrooke College are passionate about the work they do; eager for all their students to do well in a positive, supportive and academically challenging environment. We have high expectations of all of our young people as they seek to ‘Aspire and Achieve.’ We work hard to ensure that students are happy and that they have a safe and secure environment where they can achieve their full potential and beyond. Progress and student welfare is at the heart of the education we provide at Carisbrooke College. Partnership between students, parents and staff is essential and we would encourage this at every opportunity. We encourage all members of our school community to value learning, respect and responsibility.
