About Us

Student. Inspired. Creativity.

Netherhall Creative Studios is designed to help students from the Creative & Media Studio School gain invaluable experience working on business briefs and projects for you the client.

Netherhall Creative Studios is an enterprising concept centred on the Creative & Media Studio School Students experiencing life within a genuine, Creative Agency. NCS offers students the opportunity to take up leading/management roles within the journey from client/customer enquiry right through to delivery and completion of genuine briefs/commissions. This process involves the very same steps recognised as being fundamental within any successful Creative organisation. The scope of NCS is varied; offering NCS Photography services, Media and Film Design Services along with a host of personalised-design products through the ‘Student Design Co’. Further information can be found about these three aspects through exploring this web page. On here you will find out who the team is, the way we like to go about business and testimonials from our very real, and satisfied, customers!

NCS is fully supported and embedded within the learning framework of the Creative & Media Studio School. What does this mean? Well...for a start, it means that our young people have the opportunity to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding gained within their lessons to respond to actual business/customer requests. The added value such a process has for a Student's learning journey is unquestionably positive. Not to mention how this contributes to a lively and varied CV. Students learn from doing, they learn from seeing, and they learn from constructive feedback. Opportunities provided through the NCS provide all these aspects of learning.

Our leading mission for creating such an enterprising concept is to…

“Support young people to develop employability and enterprising skills that will give them a competitive edge”.

“Provide endless and genuine opportunities for our young minds to respond to be-spoke design needs”.

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.
