The local area
Located just a few miles off the coast of Hampshire in southern England, the Isle of Wight has been a popular holiday destination since Victorian times. The island has a long and rich history that includes Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age, Roman, Saxon and Norman occupation, with its strong strategic position a factor in this. Almost 150 square miles in size, over half of the Isle of Wight is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From sweeping countryside to craggy cliffs and sandy beaches, it’s not hard to see why.
The Isle of Wight is connected to mainland England by car and passenger ferries that depart from Cowes at the northern tip of the island. The River Medina runs right from Cowes to inland Newport, which is the island’s county town. A network of A roads can be used to get between the major towns, while there is just one railway line in use nowadays, which runs between Ryde and Shanklin. The Isle of Wight Airport at Sandown and Bembridge Airport are the island’s two airfields.
If you’re looking for a good school to send your children to then there are plenty across the island. At primary level, all major towns have a number of options, such as Cowes Primary, Newport CofE and Shanklin CofE. At secondary level, the choices include Cowes High School, Cowes Enterprise College, Ryde High School and Carisbrooke College near Newport.
