Welcome to Stoke Studio College for Construction & Building Excellence
I’m delighted that you are considering Stoke Studio College, and hope that this course guide helps you to understand the opportunities we offer and how a Studio College operates.
Stoke Studio College opened in Longton in September 2012 as a brand new concept in education and the first of its type in the area, with state of the art facilities and equipment. It offers outstanding and unique opportunities for young people in North Staffordshire. We relocated in February 2015 to join our Engineering branch on the newly-refurbished facilities in Burslem.
Our motto is “Educating the Next Generation of Experts” and our aim is to enable you to gain the qualifications and experience you need as a foundation for your future – whether you plan to continue studying, are considering an apprenticeship or want to move into full time employment with training.
Alongside our highly skilled teaching staff and coaches, we involve local and national employers to deliver the experience and skills that employers expect, and to mentor and support our students. Project-based learning is a core value of Stoke Studio College and enables you to develop a wide range of employability skills to complement your academic achievements.
You are very welcome to come and meet us to get a real feel of what we offer. Our door is open to all students who are interested and we’re happy to answer your questions.
The following Studio College students played an outstanding part in representing the Discovery Academy Year 10 boys in the quarter finals match against St Thomas More on Tuesday 15/11/16. The side lost the game 2 goals to 0, but despite the defeat the students contributed in an `Outstanding Manner`.

Well Done lads, keep it up!
Our year 13 Level 3 Construction and Engineering students hit the ground running on their first day back at the Studio College after the summer break by attending a UCAS application information session, in preparation for their applications to University.
Our students hold high aspirations in subject areas ranging from architecture, building surveying and electrical/mechanical engineering and design engineering; this complements the Studio College ethos to help every single student to achieve their aspirational choice for the future. Students will be attending visits to a range of Universities throughout the academic year, including Loughborough University which they visited on 15th September. Siraaj said that “the session was really informative and I have found out that I am currently working higher than the grade boundaries required for the Architecture Degree that I want to study”.
