3 INTRODUCTION TO WALSALL & SIXTH FORM Walsall Studio School is a brand-new school and sixth form for year olds based within the state of the art 2.7m Goldmine centre (a 5 minute walk from Walsall train station and Saddlers Centre). The Studio School & Studio Sixth provides unique personalised learning pathways for young people in a range of established and cutting edge curriculum areas to prepare young people for the world of work, now and in the future. Walsall Studio School is small in numbers (with no more than 50 students in each year 10 & 11, and no more than 200 students in the sixth form). It is high in expectations (for all its students achievements) and broad in outlook (preparing students to reach confidently into a world of opportunity). For more information about what courses are available for you please see the pages listed below. : KS4 Year 10 & 11 Ages 14 & 15 GCSEs BTEC Firsts Page No. 07 SIXTH: SIXTH FORM Year 12 & 13 Ages 16 & 17 L2 BTEC Diplomas L3 BTEC Diplomas A Levels Page No. 08 BRIDGE: 1-YR FAST TRACKS Unique One-Year Programmes for 17 & 18 year olds Fast Track BTEC Qualifications as a bridge to employment or university Page No. 08 Young people have told us that they want to achieve more qualifications and higher grades. They know they need improve their employability skills and want to see that there are clear career pathways open to them. Along with our business and educational partners we, as the sponsor, will ensure Walsall Studio School delivers 21st century education for young people giving them hope, confidence and the skills and experiences they need to walk into their own bright future. Kevin Davis, CEO The Vine Trust Group Our key educational partner is Queen Mary s Grammar School who has been part of the design and development of the Walsall Studio School from the start. With our support, the school will provide an excellent education service whatever your talents and abilities. We will expect you to set your sights on excellence. In return, we will provide every one of you with the opportunity to realise your potential. We will expect to work alongside your parents, guardians and families to support and encourage high aspirations for you all. Tim Swain, Headmaster Queen Mary s Grammar School SECTION ONE INTRODUCTION The staff team at Walsall Studio School & Studio Sixth use the most successful approaches to teaching, learning and pastoral support. They are experts at facilitating student learning and discovery using projects throughout each year that require collaboration and creative teamwork. Walsall Studio School uses the CREATE framework of employability skills: Applying Knowledge, Communication, Relating to People, Enterprise, Thinking Skills and Emotional Intelligence. Walsall Studio School is for young people who achieve their best through practical hands on learning and for those who will benefit from the experience of working directly with employers at the same time as studying for nationally recognised qualifications. THE SPONSOR AND PARTNERS Business & Social Enterprise Specialism Walsall Studio School is sponsored by the Vine Trust Group. Known regionally and nationally for its entrepreneurial expertise and social enterprise activities, the Vine Trust provides specialist knowledge and skills in developing and nurturing an enterprising culture within the school. The sponsor has set the challenge of ensuring the seven key strands of enterprise: (1) Social, (2) cultural, (3) community, (4) commercial, (5) creative, (6) industrial, and (7) international enterprise form the basis and core theme of the school. Walsall Studio School will be one of the first in the region to offer students and their parents a unique opportunity to choose a new educational pathway in a practical learning environment at the age of 14+. The Walsall Studio School has secured the support of a number of key businesses, entrepreneurs and educational partners and the list continues to grow as more employers recognise the benefit of working directly with young people. (The up-to-date list of partner employers is available on our website)

4 WORK PLACEMENTS & INTERNSHIPS The most significant difference from your current school or sixth form is that you will spend up to 2 days a week in the workplace. When you join Walsall Studio School or Sixth Form you will be assigned one or more companies that you will work with during your time with us. If you join us in year 10 you will undertake a placement each week, which will form a key part of one of your vocational qualifications. In the sixth form you will undertake a paid work placement/internship, which will make you stand head and shoulders above the competition when the time comes for you to enter employment.
