Welcome

Welcome to Medina College. We have a talented team of teachers and other professionals who provide students with the best possible opportunities in a wide range of subject areas. We provide a carefully planned curriculum to ensure that whatever your child’s interests or career ambitions, we are able to provide for their needs.

As you may be aware, I have been Executive Headteacher for the Isle of Wight Education Federation which comprises Carisbrooke College, Medina College and The Island VI Form since January 2018. I was Head of School at our partner school, Carisbrooke College for the first two and a half years and have been Head of Medina College since the summer of 2020. Between the Isle of Wight Education Federation and my previous two schools, I have over 14 years of headship experience and 20+ years of leadership experience.

Working with the other schools in our Federation, our aim is simple – to be the best for our young people. Young people get one chance at growing up and we need to make this experience an amazing one for them. As a parent myself (three children who have long since flown our nest!) I really understand what makes a great experience and young people will get that here.

Please come and look around – you will always receive a warm welcome.

Executive Headteacher and Head of Medina College
