Mendip Sixth Form Site

Mendip Studio School is a small school of approximately 120 students with around 50 students in the Sixth Form. We offer a range of vocational qualifications within a supportive nurturing environment. Students achieve consistently strong outcomes each year. In 2020, 33% of students achieving A* and A grades, 60% of students achieving A*-B grade and 80% of students achieving a C grade or higher. 100% of students passed and 100% went on to their first choice destination. 


Mendip Studio School is all about freeing the talents within every young person – identifying your talents, nurturing them and teaching you how to apply them.

We believe in first class care, a personalised curriculum and providing opportunities for our students to design and build their own futures.

To help us to achieve these goals, you will benefit from a range of employment and Higher Education links – employers work with students every week.  Our facilities are industry standard and we offer a broad experience so that you will have the edge over your peers when you take your next steps, regardless of whether you choose to enter into Higher Education, Apprenticeships or Employment.

Every student truly does matter and we will work closely with you, your parents/carers and your teachers to support and challenge you to be the best you can be.

How are we different?

Mendip Studio School will help to prepare you for the next step, whether that is into University, Apprenticeships or Employment – this is at the heart of our mission.


We offer:

  • Unusual, but well recognised qualifications for STEM subjects 

  • Work Experience

  • Employers regularly working with students during the school day

  • A vertical tutor-coach pastoral model so that students develop their social skills, resilience and role-modelling

  • A small school where students benefit from a caring student-centred team focusing on each individual’s needs. 


We passionately believe that all students must consider the following three things in order to select the right programme of study for their Sixth Form experience:

  • What you enjoy and have done well in

  • How you learn e.g. practical, essays, making, designing

  • What you want to do when you leave Sixth Form

Our prospectus and more specific details of the courses on offer are available on the links below.  

A Levels

Courses on offer:

Students should pick one double option (equivalent to two A Levels) and one single option (equivalent to one A Level). Students can then also pick an enrichment option to complement their core programme. The Childcare course is a full time course so students wishing to do this should only pick this option.
