Values and vision

Studio West has all the best features of a small school, offering a safe environment where every student is attended to with an education tailored to their needs. Each child has a Personal Coach who guides their progress and keeps in regular contact with parents and carers.

A unique aspect of Studio Schools is the national CREATE skills framework developed by the Studio Schools Trust. This framework has been designed to give young people the key skills to flourish in life and in the world of work. As students progress through the three levels of the CREATE framework, they are regularly assessed by Personal and Learning Coaches to ensure they are on track and making progress. There are three levels in the CREATE framework, as students progress from apprentice, to expert, to coach.
