Principal’s Welcome

It is both my pleasure and an enormous privilege to welcome you to Christ the King College. It is the first and only joint Church of England and Catholic College on the Isle of Wight, providing a faith based education firmly rooted in Gospel values. Our College was established for those families who wish their children to achieve the highest possible academic standards within a strong Christian ethos. In practice, this means our students achieve highly, they develop into wonderful, courteous, caring young adults who understand the importance of mutual respect, tolerance and their future contribution to our world as global citizens.

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. This is what we aspire to at Christ the King College.

Furthermore, we believe that 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.

I understand how important the choosing the right school for your child is for you and for your family. If you are interested in finding out more about us, then please contact us. 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.
