The September 26th edition of the Chronicle explained the US connection with Studio West:
“West Denton will be the site for a school inspired by San Diego teaching methods, it has been confirmed.
Studio West will open on the site of the former All Saints College next year for 13 to 19-year-olds with a guarantee that all passing through its doors will be offered a job, a place at university or an apprenticeship.”
Speaking about places at the new school, Val Wigham — principal designate of Studio West — said:
“We have a limited number of places and are taking applications now at www.studiowestnewcastle.com”
