Welcome from the Principal


At Studio West we put students at the centre of everything we do. We strive each day to provide a wealth of academic and extra-curricular opportunities, so our young people grow into successful students who achieve well and socially responsible and caring citizens, who make a difference to this wonderful community. As a studio school, our holistic curriculum, which includes links with local business partners, provides opportunities for students to develop and apply a range of skills, including teamwork, critical thinking and broader life skills.


Studio West is a high performing studio school with a curriculum intent that ensures students have the knowledge and skills to succeed in life. In 2019 Ofsted judged Studio West to be good and under Northern Leaders Trust, the school has continued to improve even further. Students of all abilities can thrive in this exciting learning environment, which nurtures their aspiration and improves their life chances, with high expectations and a good quality of education. Students move on from Studio West with an ability to help shape and contribute to their modern era as confident, able and well-rounded individuals.


I am very proud to be leading Studio West, where every day we work together to lead with integrity, kindness and inclusiveness.
