Apollo Studio Academy

Apollo Studio Academy is sponsored by The Academy at Shotton Hall in partnership with East Durham College. It caters for 300 students and specialises in STEM, Health, Care and Early Years. The Studio School promotes employability skills and tackle low aspirations working with employer partners such as Catepillar, Sherburn Stone and the NHS Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust.

The education vision follows a national agenda for skills based learning and employability. The Curriculum emphasises English, Maths and science with a focus on project learning and the CREATE framework that is developed through a programme of personalised learning.

A number of pathways for Apollo Studio Academy leavers are set out such as an “Apolloship” which can be designed to meet a particular employer needs and will allow a student to follow a form of apprenticeship whilst remaining on the school roll.
