What the school offers its staff

About Studio School & Sixth

Established in 2013 and located on the edge of Walsall Town Centre, Studio School and Sixth is a unique school that offers high-quality academic and vocational curriculum to 14–19-year-olds across the Black Country.

Students choose to join our school in year 10 (expanding their opportunity to study a personalised set of KS4 GCSE and vocational options) or in year 12 (choosing to immerse themselves in one of our specialist pathways); creating a community of likeminded young professionals who are keen to express their aptitude, aspiration, and passion for ‘what we do’.

As a working studio, our students benefit from:

  • Hands-on experience: Students gain practical experience by working on authentic projects alongside experienced teachers and industry professionals.
  • Relevant education: Our curriculum is tailored to the creative, health and digital industries, providing students with the skills and knowledge that are relevant and in-demand.
  • Industry connections: Students build relationships with a wide range of industry professionals, adding true value to their learning experience and future job opportunities.
  • Access to equipment and resources: As a studio, students have access to a wide range of equipment and resources to support learning and enhance skills.
  • Career preparation: By working in a real-world environment, students better prepare themselves for careers in their field and understand the expectations and demands of their chosen profession.

By having the opportunity to study with us at the beginning of their year 10 or 12 journey, students develop a competitive advantage for the following reasons:

  • Personalised approach: Although able, not all students want to be limited by traditional EBacc subjects, and would prefer a choice to select a personalised range of option choices
  • Balanced education: By promoting the benefits of strong academic, vocational and personal curriculums, students follow a balanced educational approach that prepares them for a variety of careers.
  • Career focus: Our specialist approach allows students to develop skills and knowledge in their chosen field and gain a better understanding of their future career options.
  • Early specialisation: By choosing to study at a specialist school at the end of year 9, students can start specialising in their chosen field earlier, which can give them a competitive advantage.

Studio School & Sixth is a specialist 14-19 non-selective school and founding member of The Mercian Trust.

Located in the heart of Walsall town centre, our unique small school and sixth form offers an immersive professional experience; supporting academic, vocational and personal excellence for students starting Year 10 or Year 12 who seek a creative and digitally rich curriculum.
Vocational learning is really important here, but it would be wrong to think that this means our students focus purely on practical work. There’s plenty of theory to learn and we strike a good balance between the academic and the vocational. Above all, we challenge our students to be the very best they can be in their chosen fields.

Back in the Renaissance, more than 400 years ago, ‘apprentices’ studied under the guidance of ‘masters’ and it’s this model that has influenced the way Studio Schools operate today. Of course, much has changed and now, thankfully, those ‘masters’ and ‘apprentices’ are just as likely to be women and girls as men and boys.

Studio School & Sixth has almost 300 such ‘apprentices’. It’s one of only a handful of Studio Schools in the country and opened its doors in 2013. Its students go on to universities, conservatoires and high-quality apprenticeships. The school focuses on the creative, health and digital industries, which means students have careers as paramedics, therapists, software engineers, actors, dancers, teachers and much else besides.
