STUDENTS at Cowes Enterprise College are set to move into their new school, built with £32 million of government money, next month.
A final wrap-up meeting between Isle of Wight Council education bosses and members of the Cowes Pathfinder Trust, the body that runs the college, is due to be held on August 13 before the building opens for the new school year.
The complex, built next to the existing Cowes High School, boasts community facilities and eco-friendly features, including a wind turbine and solar panels, to help power the school, and a recycled water system.

I drove by the School today [8th August] I would seriously doubt that this College will be fully operational by the new School year. Send Charlotte Hofton to take a look round the new complex and try a new opening date, say, by half term in October!!!

I am sure the internal of the building will be exceptional and the kids will learn a lot from it BUT i do question the exterior of the building. It looks like a concrete Jungle, that is just asking for the the kids to graffiti the walls.It looks nothing like the artists impression! I am sure it will take over the award of ugliest building that was awarded to the Tricorn centre in Portsmouth! In my view they should of used some brickwork instead of concrete panels! How did this get past planning??? ohh yes it was commissioned by our council !

Whilst the intention/desire is very laudable, this statement appears either naive or misled. Perhaps the the LEA and IWCP would like to visit the site and come up with a more realistic time scale.A casual drive by the site would suggest that this is still some months from practical completion - then there will naturally be some time for commissioning and testing prior to occuption.Once completed and open the school will be a fantastic new centre of learning and should bring much oppurtunity to its existing and future students - but setting unachievable targets does not help the project.
