Living and working on the Isle of Wight

Sandown Bay Academy is a secondary school with Sixth Form situated on the south east coast of the Isle of Wight. Sandown is set in a magnificent bay of golden sandy beaches alongside culver down.   

The island is a fantastic location to live and work for both families and young adults.  The Isle of Wight is less than 2 hours from London and with regular ferries is an easy commute from Hampshire.

The Isle of Wight is an enticing destination with 150 square miles of stunning countryside and coastline. It is one of the most beautiful parts of the country and is a paradise for walkers, cyclists, sailors or anyone who loves outdoor activities.

The vibrant Island comes alive in the summer with the Isle of Wight Festival, Bestival and Cowes Week.

Sandown has one of the UK’s best sunshine records.
