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. There are approximately 600 students on roll. We also have a joint VI Form provision, the Island Innovation VI Form Campus, based in the centre of Newport. The VI Form is shared with our federated partner, Medina College. The college is fortunate to be based on 24 acres of beautifully Landscaped gardens. We have very good sporting facilities which include several rugby and football pitches, a hockey pitch, a basketball court and a floodlit ‘Astroturf’ pitch. By Easter 2019 we will be in a brand new purpose built school here on our well established site. It will have state of the art IT and Technology facilities and will finally be a fit for purpose school building.
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.
