The results are in, and it’s been another impressive batch of GCSE results for our Studio students; outperforming expectations across the board, and cementing the Studio’s role as a first class education provider, in the heart of the Baltic Triangle.
The tech sector is one of those that is typically under represented by women. However, The Studio School is pleased to announce that the girls are staking their claim to the tech roles of the future. This year, girls at The Studio have made significantly more progress than their male colleagues.
