Head Teacher's Welcome
“I am delighted to introduce our Studio School to you on our exciting new website. We are all extremely proud of the outstanding progress students have made in just a short time since we opened in September 2014.
We are offering a new concept in education on the island, where 14-16 year olds can benefit from a different model of learning that captures and channels potential to the highest levels. We welcome ambitious students to our brand new specialist school designed to equip young people with the skills, knowledge and experience they require to succeed in work.
Isle of Wight Studio School is part of the Inspire Academy Trust and is also part of the national network of similar schools supported by the Studio Schools Trust. Our students experience an exciting and vibrant learning environment that encourages and develops independent thought, self-discipline, motivation and confidence. We are devoted to the rounded education and future of young people who are interested in preparing themselves for a career in an industry that best suits their strengths and interests.
Our specialism is in marine manufacturing, marine engineering and renewable energies supporting many businesses on the island. However, this is not an exclusive focus as we will endeavour to provide support, guidance and experiences to suit the needs of each individual who joins us. This new way of learning mixes a rigorous academic GCSE programme of study and vocational qualifications with real life work experience. Students have the opportunity to work with island based employers who offer long-term ‘real job’ work placements and work in partnership with the school to support the development of each student.
