Studio students achieve high in this year’s A-levels

Students of the Baltic Triangle-based Studio school – which specialises in creative and digital education for 14-19 year olds – have woken up to a glowing set of A level results; securing the school’s spot as one of the top destinations for Sixth Form education in Liverpool.

The Studio, which is part of the Northern Schools Trust, empowers students to make a positive impact on our world through the innovative use of digital technology. It is also one of the top places in Liverpool to study art; and this is reflected clearly in today’s A-level results, with art and graphics scoring exceptionally high across the board.

The student’s results speak for themselves, with most school-leavers entering apprenticeships, degree apprenticeships or heading off for university.

Studio student, Mia Campbell, has secured a degree apprenticeship in data analytics at Unilever; whilst Tom Humphries has been accepted onto a degree apprenticeship in software engineering at JP Morgan, after having achieved an A* in maths and D* D* (starred Distinction) in software and programming.

Tyler Rotherham, who has been getting ahead of the game by working at Sony all summer, has attained D*D*D*D, meaning that he’s off to Abertay University to study games production.

Sami Richards attained an A in computing and a D*D* in scripting and programming; Ollie Bielby Smith secured his place at the University of Leeds, with an A* in graphics and D*D* in digital publishing; whilst Alex Sinir achieved a DD in enterprise and an A at EPQ – both students have been studying at the Studio for the past four years.

The Studio has announced that it is now running an extended diploma in games, VFX, and animation.

Studio principal, Jill Davies said: “Results have improved again on an already good set from last year. The changing landscape of vocational education has really upped the game and our students are thriving as a result.

“The destinations they head for after leaving the Studio continue to be phenomenal, including JP Morgan, GCHQ and Unilever, which is testament to us providing the right students with the right courses in the right city at the right time.

“Our creative subjects – including art, graphics and photography – continue to perform incredibly strongly, with a committed team of staff dedicated to making sure our students do brilliantly.

“But a Studio education is more than just about subjects and grades. Students celebrate the portfolio career that begin while they’re here, particularly in creative and digital, as they’re exposed to the future world of work.

“And the fabulous relationships with families, our partners and the wider industries – but also between the students and staff – push students to work hard and achieve excellent results.

“We have made sure that what we’re good at is at the heart of what we do and our students are so much more ready for life in the outside world as a result. Young people know that they have to stand out in the world of work – that it’s about more than just qualifications – and that all starts here”.
