Introduction

Here at Future Tech, we aim to foster the principles of the Studio School model through the use of futuristic technology, to create an innovative and engaging curriculum which students can thrive on in the classroom and the workplace.

Specifically, we aim to:

  • Achieve Outstanding progress, attainment and career destination outcomes
  • Innovate a project-based curriculum, fit to prepare students to excel in the career specialisms of IT & Telecommunications, Business & Finance and Engineering
  • Embed a fully inclusive, personalised pastoral support system, including engagement with parents and employers
  • Implement a leadership and management infrastructure capable of positively impacting on the lives of all stakeholders within the school
  • Embed a culture of professionalism and student voice, underpinned by the Studio School model

A personalised curriculum is available at Future Tech Studio, linked to work placements and employer focused projects. We offer a personalised approach to learning and skills development that will include the following:

  • A mix of academic and specialist vocational qualifications focused on 3 industry pathways:
    • IT and Telecommunications
    • Business Management
    • Design Engineering

All of which are in high demand across Warrington.

  • Work placements for all of our students
  • Project based learning sessions which relate core subjects back to the pathway specialism
  • A focus on Maths, English, Science and Computer Science in all areas of the Curriculum
  • Applied learning using the latest technologies in a flexible working environment
  • Rigorous tracking and regular review of student progress working in close partnership with parents
  • A personalised curriculum which recognises the full range of student abilities
  • Students at Future Tech Studio have the opportunity to study for GCSEs and A Level qualifications alongside vocational & professional qualifications whilst gaining valuable work experience.

Message from the Principal

Welcome to the Future Tech Studio; a progressive and innovative model of education in Warrington.

I am delighted there has been such strong interest from both students and parents in our school; we have been oversubscribed with student applications from across and outside the borough.

The calibre, motivation and commitment of our students tells me we are building something special. Fuse together project based learning, with an industrial twist, combined with cutting edge facilities; you have the typical Future Tech learning lab.

Students will also be reinforcing their knowledge gained in the classroom with work experience at a number of sought after employers. Not only this, but they will also get the highest quality 1:1 pastoral care through our forward thinking Personal Coaching system. I look forward to welcoming all students to Future Tech, as we give them a competitive edge in finding their future career.

What is a Studio School?

Studio Schools are a type of state school for 14 – 19 year olds which are designed to better prepare young people for the working world.

Studio Schools pioneer a bold approach to learning with a focus on teaching through enterprise projects, personalisation and real work. This approach ensures students’ learning is rooted in the real world and helps them to develop the skills and experience they need to flourish in life.

Studio Schools are small schools for 300 - 400 students and, with year-round opening and a 9.00am-5.00pm working day, they feel more like a workplace than a school. Working closely with local employers, Studio Schools will offer a range of academic and vocational qualifications at Levels 2 and 3, including GCSEs in English, Maths and Science at Key Stage 4 and A Levels and Level 3 Vocational qualifications at Key Stage 5. Additionally, Studio Schools offer work placements linked directly to employment opportunities in the local area. Students will gain a broad range of employability and life skills through the CREATE skills framework (Communication, Relating to Others, Enterprise, Applied, Thinking, Emotional Intelligence), and will have the opportunity to progress on to university, further training, and into employment after completing their studies at the Future Tech Studio.
