The Mendip Studio School had very positive results last week in their A levels, and now celebrate strong GCSEs. A good number of youngsters intend to stay on for post 16 studies at the school and it has been a delight to see the strength of vocational outcomes across a wide range of subjects. Academic studies do not always suit all children and in the ‘real’ world, vocational skills are so important. Almost all children passed a full set of 8 or more qualifications, a stunning achievement.
“We are thrilled that our students have done so well, grasping the unique opportunities our Studio School has to offer – a different, more relevant and applied approach for this inspiring generation of tomorrow’s creators, engineers and scientists. I am so pleased that those students who opted for a fresh start 2 years ago have experienced success in their GCSEs. BTEC qualifications, in particular, have really impressed. Another great year for our students and one that we will continue to build on over the coming year.”Bruce Hain, Headteacher
