Studio Schools

A new type of school designed to engage more practical pupils has formally been announced by Schools Secretary Ed Balls.

Two pilot Studio Schools, which offer an innovative new curriculum involving practical learning and paid work, have today been approved by Ed Balls.

The schools, which have a focus on business and enterprise, will cater for 14-19 year olds from a range of abilities. They have been designed to better suit the needs of young people who might not otherwise reach their full potential in a traditional school environment.
