Supported by The Aldridge Foundation, and a member of the established and hugely successful Darwen Aldridge North West Education Trust, the Studio works with students and parents to ensure that everybody achieves their full potential â€“ in GCSEs and A Levels; in professional learning; in work placements, and in gaining the skills and knowledge needed for the next stage of their lives, whether that is going to University or entering the world of work.
For students,what makes us different is not what is offered but how it is delivered. We are taking learning out of a traditional classroom setting, and teaching the curriculum through a range of projects which are based on real life situations, but will still teach students everything they need to be able to pass their exams. These projects are based in the school, with local employers, and in the local community.
For parents, our â€˜whole studentâ€™ approach and our commitment to communicating with you and involving you in your childâ€™s learning will mean that you feel confident in working with us.
At Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio, we believe that there are young people who will flourish when they are taught in small classes and treated like adults and when offered a personalised approach which identifies and supports their individual development needs.
We also know that employers want to recruit young people who are both highly skilled and ready for the real world of work. We support our students in gaining the skills and confidence that they will need for this.
We make careers not just pretty pictures.
