The Creative and Media Studio School, Kirklees

Everyone starting at the Creative & Media Studio School begins a journey with many destinations. Some will go on to achieve vocational qualifications and get a great job, some will find themselves going to university and some will have the skills to set up their own business.

Studio Schools have been specially designed to make this happen; this is a school unlike any other in the country. We have businesses and pupils working side by side and our new purpose-built £4.5m building will be one of the best learning facilities in the country, let alone Kirklees.

What makes us different is not what is offered but how it is delivered. We take learning out of a traditional classroom setting, teaching the curriculum through real-life enterprise themed projects in the school and the surrounding community.

Our post 14 and 16 students benefit from studying business-friendly qualifications in an environment that allows them to apply what they have learnt in the classroom directly into real life business situations. Some of the our pupils even get paid for doing so!

There is considerable evidence that this practical approach to learning can lead to high grades, improved engagement and better job prospects for young people, as well as widening the pathway to higher education and beyond.
