About our academy

Cowes Enterprise College is part of the Ormiston Multi Academy Trust.

We strive every day to create an education that sees the young people of Cowes and the community beyond get the very best, not just in an academic sense but also in developing the skill set, confidence, attitudes and aspirations that will provide the catalyst for sustained success throughout their lives. Our ambition is:

  •  To empower students to become independent and confident with the self-belief that they can influence change.

  •  To encourage and develop in all members of the academy, our core values of HEART: Honesty, Empowerment, Awareness, Responsibility and Trust.

The academy moved into a new, fully-equipped building with superb facilities in 2013. The Humanities faculty has a suite of rooms including a large ‘inspiration space’ and workroom and has a core of experienced teachers.

Cowes Enterprise College is located in the internationally famous town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Cowes boasts both a fantastic quality of life and significantly lower house prices. Our academy is also highly commutable from the mainland as it is situated just minutes from the fast passenger ferry link to Southampton.

It is widely regarded as the world’s premier yachting centre and hosts the oldest yacht club in the world – the prestigious Royal Yacht Squadron. It has excellent transport links to Southampton (car ferry and high-speed catamaran) and to the other towns on the Island. Southampton is just over an hour away by train from Central London and is served by an airport that has regular scheduled flights to a wide range of airports.
