Welcome from the Principal


Mrs. P Goodhead, M.A.

It is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to Christ the King College, the first and only joint Church of England and Catholic College on the Isle of Wight. It has been formed by the amalgamation of two highly popular and successful schools and offers a Christian based education for its students. The College draws its students from across the Island and provides an unique opportunity to give children continuity in Christian education.

It is my firm belief that the best education combines high standards of academic achievement with strong moral and spiritual guidance. Education should provide opportunities for every individual child to succeed in a variety of ways, preparing young people for a future in which they can thrive in their chosen career paths in addition to becoming responsible, caring citizens.

Furthermore, learning should be fun, students should feel happy and safe and every individual should experience success. We work hard at Christ the King College to achieve this for our students.

Christ the King College is proud of its ethos, its all round high standards and its strong emphasis on personal development. It offers families the opportunity of an exceptional education in a strong, Christian context. We believe children deserve the best education possible and values that prepare them for the future. We are committed to providing both.

Indeed, I believe that Christ the King College is a very special place to be. I am proud of our wonderful students, the dedicated staff and the supportive governors and parents. I hope that your experience of us will lead you to believe that Christ the King College is the right place for your child to be educated.

If you wish your child to join us, please do not hesitate to seek advice about the Admissions Process, to ask questions of our staff and students or to arrange a visit to see us on a working day.
