The Studio School is a new concept in education, which seeks to address the growing gap between the skills and knowledge that young people require to succeed, and those that the current education system provides.

Studio Schools pioneer a bold new approach to learning which includes teaching through enterprise projects and real work. This approach ensures students’ learning is rooted in the real world and helps them to develop the skills they need to flourish in life.

Studio Schools are designed for 14-19 year olds of all abilities. They are small schools for 300 students; and opening 8.30 a.m. – 5 p.m. working day, they feel more like a workplace than a school. Working closely with local employers, Studio Schools will offer a range of academic and vocational qualifications including GCSE’s in English, Maths and Science, as well as work placements linked directly to employment opportunities in the local area. Students will gain a broad range of employability and life skills, and will have the option to go on to university, further training, and into employment.
