She explained the ethos behind the Studio – ‘A Fresh Approach to Learning’ - and how it works as a whole within the existing school.. Its emphasis is vocational technical learning with local professional partners and has up to 300 pupils from age 14 to 19.

It is one of only 35 Studio schools in the country and has links with Kendal College and many local businesses.
