Here For You

"You could be developing a business idea, working on a commission from a local organisation or acting as project manager for a public event."

Here at the Creative and Media Studio School there are a number of different people employed to help you make the best out of your potential.

You will be encouraged to use this support as part of your own individual learning pathway. The core team available is made up of:

  • Your Tutors
  • Your Personal Coach
  • On-site host Business Partners who offer placements and work experience
  • On-site Business Coaches who can mentor you to open up a new business

You will gain communication skills, develop the ability to relate and collaborate with people you know and don’t know, capitalise on your enterprise skills, apply your learning to a variety of contexts, as well as understand your own strengths and areas where you may need to develop.

Here at the Studio School, we want to take you on a journey: a journey that won’t end until you are where you want to be - pursuing a career, setting up your own creative enterprise or paving the way to further or higher education.

  • If you feel that your strengths lie in the fields of creative and performance arts.
  • If you have ambitions to grow your own business or forge a career in media.
  • If you are self-motivated, can organise your time and meet deadlines efficiently.

Well, you sound like our sort of person and we’d love to meet you.

About the school

The Creative & Media Studio School is open to all young people who have a creative flare and are aged between 16 – 19 years old.

The Creative and Media Studio School was the first Studio School to open in the world in 2010. Since then it has achieved a series of fantastic outcomes for students. Today's news (14.08.2014) follows in that tradition and we are delighted

My Art lessons in the Studio School have shown me that it's not what you see, but what you make others see; I've been completely inspired.



With the skills I have developed and opportunities I have been given in the field of Graphic Design, I am positive that it will help me to lead a successful life with a very fulfilling career.



Photography means I can make Art out of real life objects. I love seeing how my skills can create amazing pieces of work, it's very exciting.



Textiles at the Studio School has allowed us to express ourselves, explore different specialist techniques, find our inner creativity and apply it to exciting scenarios.



Learning Business in the Studio School has helped me realise that Business is everywhere and has enabled me to see the world through grown up eyes.



Creative Media Production gives me the skills, confidence and experience to work with external businesses and create professional video products whilst gaining a qualification.



Drama has really helped me to develop skills I can use in all my subjects. I've really grown in confidence because of the way I have been taught.



It's helped me to realise the number of employment opportunities available in the Music Industry, giving me the skills to succeed in any profession. I've developed skills in communication, teamwork, cooperation and Music Technology skills.
