Welcome to Cowes Enterprise College - the next step of your education. This exciting phase of your schooling is very different to your last, as for the first time you will be specialising in the subjects you love. Each year of your time at Cowes is one step closer to the next chapter in your life. Along the way, you will receive expert advice on how to best achieve your goals.
At Cowes, we are lucky to have access to a brand new 3G all weather sports pitch, meaning better PE lessons for everyone and close collaboration with Chelsea Football Club Foundation. There are also many other amazing opportunities to get involved with as part of the school such as: sports clubs, drama, art, music, science, warhammer clubs, student leadership roles, inter-school competitions to name a few. These are amazing experiences if you are prepared to put the work in and are your chance to gain valuable skills and experiences to help you with your future plans.
As members of Cowes sixth form, having gone all the way through the school ourselves from year 7 to year 13, we have experienced and taken as many opportunities as we could. One of our favourites were the sports each Friday lunchtime put on by the sports captains. We played: dodgeball, mat rounders, flick-it and bench ball. Another highlight was the annual Noel Turner Science Festivals, exploring the many interesting scientific displays from industry leaders and innovators.
While at school, you will have a lot of guidance from your teachers and from mentors, who will support your emotional well-being. You will also get help in deciding where your future lies – whether that’s university, an apprenticeship, a job or something else entirely - and how you are going to get there. We are a friendly and welcoming school and we really look forward to meeting you soon.
