Studio Schools

About the Project

Studio Schools aim to respond to employers’ concerns about the lack of work readiness amongst school leavers. 

Studio Schools are innovative state schools for 14-19 year-olds, backed by local employers. The first wave of Studio Schools opened in 2010, 16 are now open and 14 additional schools opened in September 2013. 

The Studio Schools Trust (SST) has developed the unique Studio Schools curriculum model, which has been developed through extensive research and consultation with employers, education experts and young people. The SST is the organization that unites all Studio Schools, enabling the sharing of best practice as well as providing advice and curriculum support.
