Studio school

A studio school is a type of secondary school in England that is designed to give students practical skills in workplace environments as well as traditional academic and vocational courses of study. Like traditional schools, studio schools teach the National Curriculum and offer academic and vocational qualifications. However studio schools also have links to local employers and offer education related to the world of work.[1]

Description

Studio Schools are a type of [3][4]

Like University Technical Colleges, Studio Schools are designed for students aged 14–19, whereas free schools and other academies can choose the age range of their pupils. Some Studio Schools which operate in areas with a three-tier school system have intakes for students aged 13.

The name 'Studio School' is derived from the concept of the Renaissance studio which existed in Europe from 1400 to 1700. Students at these studios were taught by an experienced master in the same place in which the master created and produced his work. Modern-day Studio Schools aim to give students skills required by employees and businesses in the local area, in an environment which simulates genuine workplaces.[5] As part of this, Studio Schools are open all year round and have a longer school day, typically 9am to 5pm.

The Studio Schools programme as a whole is overseen by the Studio Schools Trust, who are responsible for helping in the establishment of new Studio Schools, and supporting existing schools to implement the model. Part of this work involves facilitating the sharing of best practice through networking sessions and training and CPD events.[6] Businesses involved with the Studio Schools programme include National Space Centre, Talk Talk, Barclays, National Nuclear Laboratory, and National Trust.[7]

The age intake range of studio schools have also been criticised, with some unions arguing that 14 is too early an age for most children to receive such a specialised education.[8]
