What is a Studio School?

A new concept in education, studio schools seek 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 also provide young people with the opportunity to achieve key qualifications, while studying a dedicated pathway designed to help them progress into locally identified employment sectors.

Defining factors of a Studio School

  • Designed for 14-19 year olds
  • Caters for a range of educational levels
  • Small cohort
  • Year-round opening
  • Feels more like a workplace than a school
  • Nurtures close links with local employers and professionals providing workshops, support and real-life work opportunities
  • Offers a range of academic and vocational qualifications including GCSEs in English, Maths and Science

  • Health & Social Care
