Executive Headteacher

It is a real pleasure and privilege to welcome you to our website. I hope that it gives existing and prospective parents and carers an opportunity to gain a real sense of our unique community and the education we provide. As the Executive Headteacher, I feel privileged to have the opportunity to lead the school in its next exciting phase of development.

Set in the heart of Sandown on the Isle of Wight, The Bay Church of England School caters for ages 4 to 16 over two sites and offers an excellent and diverse provision for all. Inspiring learners, within our supportive Christian ethos, so that each and every child has the opportunity to excel. We are proud to share the individual and collective success of our students and are committed to providing a high quality education for all.

I hope very much that you will enjoy looking through our website. If you are considering an application to the school, I would encourage you to come and visit us and see the school in action. Should you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us.
