About Digitech Studio School

Digitech is a 14-19 Studio School that is a fully integrated part of the Cabot Learning Federation. There are 543 students on roll, which is not typical of a Studio School as it is more usual that Studio Schools struggle with recruitment. The healthier student numbers are due to partnerships developed in Post 16. In Post 16, students are also educated on other industry-specific sites as part of a partnership with Boomsatsuma, a creative and media provider. Courses are site specific with exceptional links to the sector e.g. Media and Production at the Bottleyard Studios (home of Poldark and Crystal Maze); Sports Media at Ashton Gate (home of Bristol City); Media and Games Production at the Engine Shed (Employability Hub in central Bristol); Professional Acting courses using the same teachers as the Bristol Old Vic Degree course. Boomsatsuma have proven track record of good outcomes and a good reputation in the city; consequently, this has increased the expertise and visibility in the sector and increased the Digitech roll, securing the viability of the school. Post 16 results, where the average grade was Distinction, reflect this partnership and the quality of delivery. This is also the case for Post 16 courses delivered at Digitech. This is true for the 2020 summer outcomes as well as over time. A new partnership with Robins Foundation was formed in September 2020 to add Sports Diplomas into the curriculum offer. Digitech students are predominantly White British, although we actively recruit from areas of Bristol with high BAME populations. BAME students are better represented in our Post 16 and on courses delivered in partnership with Boomsatsuma. Digitech staff are a diverse group of professionals with representation from different ages, genders, cultural backgrounds and the BAME and LGBTQ+ communities. We actively welcome applications from BAME and LGBTQ professionals.
