Student benefits from attending the Atrium

  • Modern learning environment that stimulates creativity and collaboration. Atrium’s state-of-the-art facilities are accessed via a Atrium Studio Schooldynamic mix of break-out spaces and studio rooms.   Shared facilities with South Dartmoor Community College, plus full use of Ashmoor Sports Centre, provide students with everything they need to make the most of their opportunities.  
  • Small class sizes.
  • Academic rigour (10 GCSEs at Key Stage 4, and a full suite of A levels and industry relevant Level 3 qualifications at Key Stage 5).
  • Authentic and meaningful work experience opportunities.
  • The extended school day runs until 5.30 pm.  This provides students with the opportunity to access support with their home-learning from personal coaches, intervention from subject specialists, and an enrichment programme that includes sporting activities, further qualifications (eg GCSE Mandarin), clubs and practical workshops.
