The paddle bone; a femur, belongs to a large predatory reptile that would have been swimming in seas that formed over the Island millions of years ago. The bone has been identified by experts from the museum as belonging to a Plesiosaur, and closest resembles a Colymbosaurus, an animal that would have been similar in appearance to the Loch Ness monster, and swam the seas in the Jurassic period over 150 million years ago.
The bone was found at Yaverland Beach by a member of staff at Dinosaur Isle, Alex Peaker. Only a small part of the bone was exposed and took staff several days to remove the rock that encased the bone so that it could be identified. It is now on display with other fossils from the Island seas at Dinosaur Isle.
Alex Peaker, assistant community learning officer at Dinosaur Isle, who found the bone, said:
“The animal appears to have been a juvenile when it died and would have only been around 4 metres in length, but when fully grown it could have reached lengths of almost 10 metres.
“A combination of the age and type of rocks that are exposed on the Island mean that marine reptile remains such as Plesiosaurs are rarely found. Across the Island the oldest rocks that we have exposed are from the Lower Cretaceous, and are about 125 million years old, but we believe that this fossil may be much older.”
Commenting on the find, Richard Smout, Isle of Wight council heritage service manager said:
“Thanks to the eagle eyes of Alex and the team’s perseverance in painstakingly uncovering this hidden treasure, we now have an extremely rare find to display in our much loved Dinosaur Isle, just, in time for the Easter half term.
“I really recommend a visit as you will see dinosaur skeletons as they are found by the fossil hunters and can watch our volunteers preparing the latest exciting finds, as well as having the chance to view this latest extremely rare find.”
The oldest rocks exposed on the Island are from the Cretaceous period and date back to the Cretaceous period approximately 125 million years ago, but some of these rocks are known to contain much older fossils. During a period when the seas were encroaching on the land of the Island a large Jurassic escarpment had formed, allowing fossils that had formed 25 million years before hand to be eroded out of their Jurassic rocks and deposited into the younger Cretaceous rocks. It is believed that the new find is one of these much older fossils
More information about, and photos of the find can be found on the Dinosaur Isle facebook page at www.facebook.com/dinosaurisle or for more information on Dinosaur Island, please visit http://www.dinosaurisle.com/

With the new Spring term fully under way, Priory School are planning to host a Senior School and Sixth Form Scholarship Day on Monday 7th March. The “George Scholarships”, as they will be known, follow on the heels of the extremely successful “Albert Scholarships” launched in the Junior School in 2014.
Due to rapid school expansion and academic success, with former 6th Formers now at a range of Russell Group Universities, Priory School are in a position to offer, for the first time, scholarship entry to Senior School in September 2016.
They are open to all candidates and scholarships will be awarded on a basis of academic and general ability. Priory School above all welcomes and nurtures students who are keen to learn, as our ethos ensures they have the support to do so, recognised by awards won (Good Schools Guide Awards in 2010 and 2015).
The academic scholarships will be on offer for Year 7, Year 9 and for Sixth Form
(Year 12) and will comprise Mathematics, English and Science written examinations, interviews with the Principal, Edmund Matyjaszek, and Senior Tutors, and lunch with 6th Formers and staff. All candidates will be informed of the outcome before Easter.
The Scholarship Day will commence at 9am with a welcome from the Principal, the examinations in the hall, refreshments and lunch, then interviews.
The Sixth Form has an excellent track record of exceptional academic A-Level success, and UCAS preparation and University entrance.
All Senior & 6th Form students benefit from small class sizes, with a maximum of sixteen pupils per class in senior school, and small tutorial groups in the 6th Form, coupled with outstanding pastoral care. Our last Ofsted inspection in 2012 spoke of a “teaching team that is committed and dedicated to helping and supporting pupils learn”.
Central to the school’s philosophy as a “family school” is its Christian ethos, focusing on the development of each pupil and their individual worth. From Reception through to Sixth Form, students receive a first class education, and are actively encouraged to participate in the vigorous cultural, sporting and performance programmes. In 2015 Priory School won the Mock Legal Trial on the Isle of Wight, evidencing the standards our students reach.

Hovertravel helped out sister company Skybreak’s Your Service Centre at Gatwick Airport with an extra special day trip for St Barnabas House Hospice in Worthing, West Sussex.
The group met at Southsea for the ten minute hovercraft journey to Ryde, on the Isle of Wight and were transported from Ryde to Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s former holiday home on an open-top double decker bus from Southern Vectis. They had an opportunity to wander around the extensive grounds and house of the English Heritage site before returning via Hovertravel.
Neil Francis, Community Fundraising Manager at St Barnabas House Hospice, said: ‘The group had a fantastic day. Thank you so much from us all here for your support and kindness. They felt extremely welcome and looked after throughout.’ Skybreak was able to arrange this trip thanks to the generosity of Hovertravel and Southern Vectis.
Loretta Lale, Commercial and Marketing manager at Hovertravel, explains: ‘Hovertravel has made a commitment to give island customers access to standard price fares and to provide some special offers during the festival weekends. By creating an exclusive Blue Card web-only booking fare, we can offer a fabulous deal targeted to those customers who may not wish to go to the event.’
Between Friday 11th September and Sunday 13th September only, day return tickets from Ryde to Southsea will be available at a discounted price of £5 for adults/children/seniors. These special fares can only be booked online.
As during previous festival periods, Hovertravel will operate their highly effective priority boarding system which will fast-track commuters and regular Island customers, including NHS patients, onto the hovercraft, essentially allowing these customers to automatically jump to the front of any queue.
David Thornton said; ‘Hovertravel’s history is obviously strongly linked to the Isle of Wight and their recent memories campaign has encouraged people from as far away as New Zealand to get in touch and say why they enjoyed using Hovertravel to travel to the Isle of Wight. I am looking forward to this special celebration on 4th August and to meeting some of the guests who have shared their experiences from the past 50 years.’
Hovertravel is celebrating its inaugural journey on 4th August with an extra special Golden Commemorative Charter where fifty lucky guests will experience an unique trip on the Solent, complete with expert commentary from a hovercraft pilot. The guests will then be invited to join some of the Hovertravel team for a sumptuous afternoon tea at their Ryde terminal.
Loretta Lale, Commercial and Marketing Manager at Hovertravel, adds: ‘We will be contacting all the lucky guests to give them details of the event, so if you have submitted a memory to us please keep a look out for a special invitation.’
