What is a Studio School?

Studio Schools teach specialist vocational qualifications, alongside traditional curriculum subjects, providing the opportunity to specialise in certain subject areas – in our case, creative, digital and entrepreneurship pathways.

Students graduate from the Studio School with a wealth of real-world knowledge, thanks to guaranteed involvement with local businesses and innovators – giving you a competitive edge when entering the world of work or applying to university.


The year-long Ignite accelerator programme, which takes place during Year 9, is a broad and balanced curriculum. It introduces you to some of the specialist option subjects that you’ll be able to choose from in Year 10.

Culture and Wellbeing

Our culture programme actively engages students both locally and nationally, through a series of sessions designed to build upon aspects of culture, faith, finance, Latin and the local community, and our students’ role in it. Our wellbeing curriculum incorporates a varied programme of physical education classes for our students, including dance, gymnastics, field games and invasion games.


The UTC invests in Jigsaw  – a whole-school approach to PSHE / Health & Well-being, which includes statutory RSHE (England DfE 2019). Every year group studies the same learning theme at the same time, really spiralling the learning up through the age groups. Click here for more info
