Mendip Studio School will focus on STEM subjects and will include: Core Maths, Further Maths, all Sciences, Games Software Development, Design Engineering, Digital Media Production as well as the subjects offered by Writhlington Sixth.
We expect all students to choose at least two of our specialist subjects, but the third choice can be made from the Writhlington offer.
Mendip is the home of the Extended Project (which will take place on Thursday afternoons), opportunities for extended work experience and apprenticeships. All students will start their time with a three day enterprise challenge and will be part of vertical tutor groups (mixed age, developing coaching & mentoring skills). They will have access to two new, high tech, industry standard project spaces and will be led by Mr Hain, Dragonfly Deputy headteachers.
Curriculum Lead coaches ensure the provision of the R&D Thursday Sessions, collapsed timetable activities with external employers and trips/visits. Our Tutor-coach team of seven is led by our Achievement Team Leader, Miss N Fear to make sure that students are afe, cared for and successful.
