Dorset Studio School

Academy School. The Dorset Studio School is designed to equip young people with the skills, knowledge and experience they require to succeed in the land and environmental sectors. Students commence study of GCSEs in Year 9 and enjoy an innovative curriculum including a full range of academic qualifications (equating to 10 GCSEs), along with regular work placements from Year 10 onwards. The school operates from its own new state-of-the-art building, with modern teaching and learning spaces that reflect a workplace environment. Our students also benefit from the facilities on the Kingston Maurward College campus. Students need to have a strong sense of responsibility to enable them to fully participate safely and engage with the demanding expectations of the school, campus and workplaces.
