Welcome to Carisbrooke College. We are a smaller than average secondary school, fortunate enough to have had the benefit of moving in to a brand new purpose-built school on our well-established site.

Our ethos is to relentlessly pursue outstanding teaching, learning and pastoral care, whilst maintaining the focus on the needs of the individual student. Our aim and expectation is that every student who is part of our community will achieve their best in all aspects of school life.

Outstanding education is only achieved by working in close partnership with parents and carers. We want you to play a full and active role in school life, supporting your child and working with us to ensure success. We welcome collaboration and feedback about what we do well and where we could improve. Together, we can ensure each student leaves us as an educated, articulate, young adult prepared to embrace the world and the challenges ahead.
