What is a Studio School?

Studio schools are a new type of state school for 14-19 year olds. Studio schools are pioneering in their approach to education, focusing on narrowing the gap between the skills young people need to succeed in their careers, and what is taught by the current education system.

They offer traditional academic qualifications such as GCSEs alongside vocational qualifications and unpaid and paid work experience with local employers and have an extended working day. This more holistic approach to a young person’s development means they leave the school as well-rounded individuals, ready for a smooth transition into their future careers or university study.

As well as supporting students’ key employability skills, studio schools foster creativity, adaptability and resilience, to help students overcome the challenges facing them in the workplace.

The CREATE framework is embedded into all aspects of teaching at studio schools: it develops the key workplace skills of Communication, Relating to others, Enterprise, Applied skills, Thinking skills and Emotional intelligence.
