    Did I miss a story about Medina High School and Carisbrooke High School becoming colleges?

    Who is Paul Thistlewood apart from being principal scrutiny officer? What is ‘Island Innovation Trust’ – fancy title, bad smell methinks.

      Island Innovation Trust is the body formed (originally Medina Innovation Trust) that was formed to run the “new” highschools at Medina and was then approached by the council to apply to run Carisbrooke as well in a “hard federation”.

      It is planned that Nodehill will become the 6th. form for both schools.

      Lilly, Island Innovation Trust (a local Trust) won the bid to run Medina and Carisbrooke as they become secondary schools for 11-18 year old from this September (rather than the high schools for 13-18 year olds they currently are). Cowes Secondary will be run by Cowes Pathfinder Partnership (another local Trust). Sandown and Ryde become academies from September run by Academies Enterprise Trust.

      The decision was made in 2009 as part of the schools reorganisation.
