Head of School (Secondary)

At The Bay CE School (Secondary) we believe that every child can be inspired to excel and flourish given the right environment, support and challenge.

As a relatively small school, we are able to take a personal interest in the achievement and well-being of every individual. As a dedicated staff body we are committed to working determinedly to continue to develop the quality of teaching and learning in order to improve the academic outcomes and life chances for all our students. The continuing professional development of staff and giving a voice to all students is central to ensuring that we support all students to excel in their studies.

We talk a lot about ‘Team Bay’. This is founded on a culture of togetherness: we share high standards and high expectations of everyone; we share a commitment to building positive relationships; we share a passion for our community; and we share an unapologetic belief that we can all excel and succeed. As a team, we care about one another and have a true sense of community. By meeting our students at the gate every morning and saying goodbye each evening, we are modelling that we care. This is just one of a number of ways that we show the students that we care about each of them as individuals. We care about their safety, their happiness and their future aspirations.

At the core of my approach to leadership is communication. I will communicate openly and honestly with students, parents and staff in order to build an environment of trust. This, coupled with a commitment to provide a curriculum that develops knowledge, understanding, skills, attributes and attitudes that are necessary for every individual to flourish, we will enable our students to develop as successful lifelong learners.

We have high standards of uniform and behaviour at The Bay CE School; by all of our school body embracing this we will ensure that there is a consistency that allows a strong culture for learning to develop. It is only through this collaborative approach that we will truly fulfil our motto of inspiring every member of our school community to believe that they can, and therefore will, excel.

We are at the start of a great journey and I look forward to working alongside you to continue on our path to becoming the school that offers a
strength of pastoral care, a breadth of extra-curricular offers that broaden horizons, and fantastic academic outcomes that will open many doors for all in the future.

The Bay CE School (Secondary) is a very special place and this website will only give a flavour of this. If you are a prospective family or wish to work here, I actively encourage you to visit us. Our students are our best ambassadors and they would love to show you around and give you a much better sense of why we are so proud of our school.

I very much look forward to meeting you.


Mrs Westcott-Hayes

Head of School (Secondary)

*Island Line Replacement Bus Service* - Important update

The Broadway in Sandown will be closed in the Shanklin direction from Monday 12th April until Friday 28th May for roadworks.
An explanation of how the rail replacement bus service will serve Sandown station during the works is shown below.
Journeys to Ryde are unaffected.

*The Broadway, Sandown*
From 08:00 on Monday, 12th April until 18:00 on Friday, 28th May
Owing to The Broadway becoming one-way to allow utility works to take place, the Rail Replacement Bus Service in the Lake and Shanklin direction will be unable to serve The Broadway.
Instead buses will be diverted via Perowne Way and The Fairway and serve the stop in Perowne Way, adjacent to Sandown Railway Station. This stop is accessible via the subway under the railway.  Thank you.
