Stephenson Studio School offers a new and unique way of learning for 14-16 year olds of all abilities, who often learn more efficiently by taking a more hands-on role.
Our school is located in Coalville, Leicestershire and is sponsored by Stephenson College. We operate more like a workplace than a school. By imitating working conditions, such as working hours, and offering learners work placements, we hope to ease the transition into employment for all our learners.
With great links with local industry and employers, Stephenson Studio School can offer a range of academic and vocational qualifications as well as work placements designed and delivered by local employers, providing young people with the skills and the confidence to form and achieve their dreams.
I am proud to be Stephenson!
