Students can enrol in either of the schools in Year 10 or Year 12. Moving school at Year 10 can seem challenging, so there are a lot of well tested initiatives to make sure students have a smooth transition even before classes commence in September.

Upon application, the schools get to know each student as an individual both from an academic perspective by conducting baseline tests to assess their abilities and their personalities, likes and interests.

Life Sciences UTC and The Studio also offer induction programs and guidance for selecting GCSE options, all aimed at ensuring students feel supported and prepared as they embark on their educational journey.

This is reflected in students’ achievements, consistently surpassing the national average. Last academic year at The Studio School, 56% of students attained a Level 4 or higher in maths GCSE, 67% achieved a Level 4 or higher in English GCSE, and an exceptional 100% secured a Level 4 or above in art, graphics, and photography.

Meanwhile, at Liverpool Life Sciences UTC, an impressive 95% achieved a Level 5 or higher in biology, 95% in chemistry, and 89% in physics. Additionally, 42% of students excelled with a grade 7 or higher across all three sciences.
