Admissions

Cowes Enterprise College welcomes applications for students to join us at the normal entry points in year 7 and year 12. We also welcome applications for other year groups, where families move into the area or wish to change schools. 

We are proud to offer a range of supportive and stimulating activities to help ensure that the transition from year 6 into year 7 is one that children look forward to and enjoy. All year 6 children are invited to join the induction programme in July to spend time in the academy, meeting their new classmates and teachers. We also offer opportunities for parents to meet senior staff.

The academy is part of the Isle of Wight coordinated admissions scheme, so all applications for places must be made to the admissions department at County Hall, Newport, Isle of Wight.

If you have visited the academy, we thank you very much and we hope that you enjoyed your visit. If you have not had a tour but would like one, we would be delighted to invite you to look around. Please contact the main academy reception on 01983 203103 or email [email protected].  

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Cowes Enterprise College.


We have started a 6 week consultation on the academy's admission policy 2022-2023. The period of consultation will run from 1st October 2020 until 12th November 2020; during this time, parents are invited to express their views and any concerns about the proposed changes to the admission arrangements at Cowes Enterprise College.
