Key Facts

The Tendring Enterprise Studio School is a new model school for 14-19 year olds that aims to bridge the gap between what young people require to succeed and the skills that the current education system provides. It aims to support the transition between school and work and to prepare students to be ‘work-ready’. Tendring Enterprise Studio School will provide excellent standards of academic and employment focussed education and a high quality personalised learning experience.


Students at Tendring Enterprise Studio School will:
  • Achieve key GCSE qualifications in Maths, English and Science plus qualifications linked to current and future local employment opportunities.


  • Follow a personalised learning programme based on his/her learning needs and career aspirations.


  • Gain substantial experience of real work, which is part of the curriculum from age 14.


  • Develop the important employability skills and enterprising behaviours that employers have felt lacking in school leavers for far too long.


  • Learn in small groups through innovative, enterprise themed projects based in work places and the local community rather than in the classroom.


  • Have a personal coach for one to one support with their studies and work placement.


  • Have access to state of the art, industrial standard workshops and facilities in the Tendring Skills Centre and the College at Clacton.
