Stratford-upon-Avon College is proud to announce it is a member of the newly formed Studley High School Trust.
The Trust is a collaborative partnership between the college, Studley High School, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, New Century Theatre and Arrow Valley Brass Band. These links will provide tangible and exciting vocational career opportunities for the school’s students in the future, offering them ‘real world’ experiences and widening their awareness of further and higher education.
Ceri Cunningham, Head of Drama at the school said, “The rationale for acquiring the Trust is to create opportunities to maximise personal learning to enhance the experience and aspirations of learners, the expertise of teachers and thus raise standards and achievement. We also aim to strengthen the school’s specialisms, Humanities (English and Drama) and Music through formal links with a wide range of partners and positively develop the impact with all stakeholders.”
Martin Penny, Stratford-upon-Avon College Principal and Chair to the Trust commented, “We are proud to be working closely with Studley High School and the other Trust members. The Trust will enable us to work more closely with the local community and businesses to provide a unique opportunity of bringing together a variety of different organisations in the shared goal of creating a better future for our learners. In particular, students from the school will have access to the wealth of facilities here at the college for their performances and can tap in to the independent advice and guidance from college staff.”
The Trust will be launched on 21st October at Studley High School at the production, “Night at the Musicals” which is an evening of dance, drama and music, inspired by a range of musicals from different eras; musicals as diverse as the ever popular “My Fair Lady” and “Newsies” based on the strike by New York’s paper boys in the 1890s. Over 40 pupils from Years 7 to 11 are involved in the performance which will be preceded by a reception to launch the Studley High School Trust.
Studley High School, based in Studley, Warwickshire, is a Humanities (English and Drama) and Music Specialist School offering education for 11 to 16 year olds.
