Studio West is an exciting studio school, which opened in September 2014. As part of Kenton School’s Academy, Studio West cater for around 300 students aged between 11 and 19, and are currently over-subscribed for year 7. At Studio West, in addition to mainstream qualifications (including GCSEs, A Levels, and Occupational and professional qualifications), we offer an innovative and personalised curriculum for every student-focused on developing key employability and life skills required by employers. Much of our curriculum is delivered through project based learning, working alongside our business partners and our mission is to make sure that every student who leaves Studio West does so with a university or college place, an apprenticeship or a job.

We know the key to our success is having a strong team committed to the ethos of the school with the skills, dedication and passion to motivate and instill high expectations in every child.

Your knowledge of the key issues affecting behaviour, attendance and welfare will be combined with excellent interpersonal skills to not only to challenge constructively but to motivate and inspire students.

In return, you will play a key role in embedding Studio West as a school of choice in the local community with the support of not only the Studio West team, but the wider Trust.
