Parents Information Evening

Tuesday 15th October, 2013

On Monday 14th October, we held our first of two open days for the Studio West Consultation. We would like to thank everyone who attended or contributed to this open evening and helped to make it a success.

We want to consult with as many parts of the school community as we can and this event was a chance to talk about our plans and to hear opinions or ideas on how we can make Studio West a part of the educational community of Newcastle.

On Wednesday 23rd October, we are holding a Parents Information Evening. This is for any parents who are interested in their child becoming part of Studio West, who would like to know more or would like to contribute to the ongoing consultation about our school.

The evening will be hosted by our sponsor, Kenton School, on their campus at:

Drayton Road
Newcastle Upon Tyne
NE3 3RU

The Information Evening starts at 6pm.

This is an opportunity for parents to discuss how Studio West can benefit their child and to hear more about this unique vision for providing education to our region's young people. It is also a chance to share thoughts about how Studio West will fit into the education landscape of our region and the suitability of our focus on work based learning as a way of improving the educational experience of young people.

We recently posted out an information flyer to every home in the city which provided more details about Studio West and Studio Schools in general. A copy of this flyer is available to download in PDF format. In this flyer we also outlined details of how to enrol at Studio West if you have already decided that Studio West offers the best opportunity for your child.

Online Consultation

If you are unable to make either of these evenings, and even if you are planning on coming, we would love to hear your thoughts about the Studio West approach and would appreciate it if you could take the time to complete our brief consultation questionnaire. The information we get from questionnaires will be used to support the next stages of Studio West as we move towards opening in September 2014.

If you would like to talk directly to our Principal Designate, Val Wigham, please call us on 0191 2142212 or if you prefer you can contact us online or through any of our social networking accounts:
