An alternative education using creative arts and digital media for year 7 to 11 students who are not in mainstream education.
ABOUT STUDIO SCHOOL
Studio School is aimed at students who are in (or at risk of going in to) pupil referral units, specialist schools or alternative providers. The purpose of Studio School is to be part of the ‘recovery curriculum’ and fill the gaps of students’ learning using activities that are in their appeal and interest.
Studio School aspires to recover the loss of self-esteem and aspirations in their engagement with school and learning, due to the impact of COVID-19 and the lack of face-to-face engagement during lockdown.
“In times of uncertainty, we need some normality and a sense of hope for our future. This is what studio school has given to some of our lucky students who are on the 8-week program.”
E Ransome, Teacher
WHAT WILL MY STUDENT/CHILD GET OUT OF STUDIO SCHOOL?
Students will have developed a range of literacy, numeracy and ICT skills using music, drama, spoken word, film making including other multimedia & ICT activities. Students will have improved their team working and communication abilities including a wide range of other independent transferable skills. Students will have improved their confidence, self-esteem, interest and aspiration towards learning.
“Studio School has been very effective and helped me in my music education... I have really benefited from this experience, and have learnt how to mix and produce beats in a short space of time. The team are really professional and has a lot to offer me as a young person interested in music.”
