Carisbrooke College is a smaller than average, vibrant 11-16 College, strategically positioned in Newport to allow easy access from all areas of the Isle of Wight. We are small enough to know each one of our students. We may be small and caring but we have huge ambitions. Each year we accept only 120 students into our school and we are increasingly over-subscribed as parents realise we will look after each and every one of our amazing youngsters here. At Easter 2019 we moved into a brand new state-of-the-art building which has been designed and built specifically for our young people. We also have a joint VI Form provision, The Island VI Form, based in the centre of Newport. The VI Form is shared with our federated partner, Medina College.
We foster close links with our feeder primary schools and engage with their students on a number of initiatives. These links enable a smooth transition for students to Carisbrooke College.
Carisbrooke has been at the heart of education on the Isle of Wight for over 50 years. Working with the other schools in our Federation our aim is simple – to be the best.
