We have been consistently rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted since we opened 10 years ago. This is no mean feat, lots of specialist schools have struggled with offering a great blend of engaging courses and high-quality traditional education. We are proud of our academic rigour and quality-first teaching across all subjects.
Read our Ofsted reports to check that we are doing it right.
Our students leave us to achieve amazing things. From Degree Apprenticeships, to traditional academic degrees at top universities, to conservatoires and drama schools, our students continue to follow their passions long after they leave Studio School & Sixth.
