The Chronicle and Journal’s educational supplement Key to Success Through Education featured a colour centre spread piece highlighting the relationship between recent Academy convert Kenton School and the new Studio West, headlining with:
‘Kenton Academy set to change face of UK education by opening Newcastle’s first studio school’
The article explored the Kenton connection and noted the strengths of both schools:
‘Building on its considerable successes, Kenton Academy (Newcastle) Trust is now branching out into an exciting new concept, which promises to transform education in the UK.
Named Studio West, and one of just 13 new studio schools approved by the Government, the pioneering new school is set to revolutionise the educational landscape of the North East by bringing the work place into learning for 14 to 19-year olds.
Due to open in September 2014, Studio West will have authentic companies located within the premises and use ground-breaking teaching methods to encourage learning.’
