For Parents

Studio Schools are a new type of state school for 14 to 19 year olds of all abilities. They seek to close the gap between what young people need to succeed in life and the skills and knowledge that the current education system provides.

To do this, we use new approaches to learning which involve enterprise projects and real work.

The Studio is the first of its kind in the North West, but one of many opening across the country.

Our sponsors have worked with industry stakeholders to define exactly what attributes, skills and experiences are required of their future workforce.

A day at The Studio is purposefully longer than an average school day, but includes time for enrichment activities and homework so there is still time for family life.

Students are expected to be in from 9am to 4pm, like the world of work and over two academic years, students will gain a full term of extra study enabling them to maximise their grades.

Our school is an encouraging environment where students can develop the necessary qualities to prepare themselves to become the digital entrepreneurs of the future.
