“An exciting new way to learn which focuses on the individual talents and potential of each student, giving your child the skills they need to be ready for life, for the workplace and for their future career.”

Welcome to the new Plymouth Studio School which opened in September 2015.

Based on-site at the University of St Mark & St John, we offer a unique environment for students looking to combine academic excellence with a focus on sporting achievement or careers in sport.  We also provide an exciting new way to learn for those looking for non-sport careers.

We give our students a unique opportunity to undertake a mix of traditional academic qualifications (GCSEs/A levels)  combined with vocational and professional qualifications focusing on sport.  This includes a world-class Sports Performance Programme working with Olympic and Commonwealth athletes and a Sports Coaching and Development Programme.  We  also  offer the English Baccalaureate as a qualification.

Our aim is to put our students ahead when it comes to taking up employment, careers or higher education in the sport and life-style sectors which are rapidly expanding in the City and beyond.

We put excellence in the quality of our teaching, guidance and support first.  With a total intake of just 300 students, our small class sizes mean we can focus on the specific talents and potential of each young person to provide a challenging and exciting way to learn.  Through inspiration, motivation and example, we aim to give every student the vision and ability to achieve more.

Our school allows students to mix their studies with the ability to train and perform in sports at the highest level AND  allows them to transfer the motivation, commitment and focus they feel on the sports field into the classroom and into the workplace.

As parents and carers, you might be looking for a way to help your child make the most of their individual talents and to be the  best that they can be too?

As a specialist school, we feel privileged to be able to offer you the opportunity to do this by providing students with a learning experience which is enjoyable, exciting, inspiring and relevant to today’s world of work.

Our new £4 million school building and High Performance Sport Centre is now open on-site at Marjon and we are currently recruiting our next students for September 2018.  If you would like to be part of this exciting way to learn,  we would encourage you to reserve your student place now.  Sign-up for one of our forthcoming open-events, apply now or contact us on info@plymouthstudioschool.co.uk.

We  look forward to meeting you and to welcoming you to the Plymouth Studio School.
