The Prime Minister announced National Restrictions from 5th January 2021. As a result, Carisbrooke College, Medina College and The Island VI Form are all currently closed to all students apart from Vulnerable students, students with an EHCP and children of critical workers. All other students are accessing remote education which is delivered via Google Classroom. All students received lessons in how to access this online provision in the Autumn Term. Please see the link below for full details.
