Studio West, Newcastle

Studio West is sponsored by Kenton Academy. It caters for 300 students. It aims to equip pupils with a range of skills responsive to the demands of employers. This is reflected in the variety of employers involved with the school including Marriot Sunderland, Alston Murphy Architects Ltd, and BAM Nuttall Ltd (engineering). Local employers have already offered a number of paid work placements for students who attend the school.

At KS4, students have the opportunity to undertake a suite of GCSE/BTEC Level 2 qualifications including English, maths and double science and have the opportunity to achieve the EBacc alongside other pathways. The Post-16 programme specialises in a combination of academic and/or occupational courses to ensure opportunities for advanced apprenticeships, further/higher education and Level 4/5 development that meets student aspirations and employer demand.
