One of the consequences of the interesting history of Catholicism on the Isle of Wight is the variety in style of our churches, which include, in Newport, the oldest purpose-built, post- Reformation, Catholic parish church in England or Wales.

There are churches in Newport, Ryde, Sandown, Shanklin, East Cowes, Cowes, Bembridge, Ventnor and Totland Bay.

There two abbeys, several convents and a lay community.

There are primary schools in Newport, Ryde, East Cowes, Ventnor and Totland. Christ the King College, a joint Anglican and Catholic school in Carisbrooke, offers secondary education for the whole Island.
