A Studio School for students in Years 9-13 specialising in the Built Environment – the first of its kind in the South West.   Opened in 2015 in an architect-designed building, Atrium Studio provides a stand-out education for students aspiring to professional careers in areas including Architecture, Interior Design, Ecology, Structural Engineering, Surveying and Planning. 

Applications for future Year 9 and Year 12 students are now open to those currently in Year 8 and Year 11, so please get in touch today to find out more.
 

In 2016 we received the ‘Leadership and People Development Award’ at the South West Built Environment Awards.   We were also recognised for providing ‘outstanding education’ for students aspiring to professional careers in the Built Environment Industries.

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 dynamic 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.

Saturday, 13th October was an exciting and inspirational day for me as I saw our dedicated students, supportive parents and committed staff participate in our first “Oktoberfest”. It captured a true sense of community spirit as our extended Atrium family joined in a day of activities. I also got to see how many hidden talents our staff had—Mrs Chesterton with her friendship bracelet making, Ms Walpole and her Chinese Calligraphy, Mr Murphy and Mr Long making paper aeroplanes….up until Saturday I blamed the students for the planes stuck in the beams! I also thought the cadets did a great job with the blindfold obstacle course they set up in Mrs Woodward’s Maths room—now that
was something I didn't’ expect! ...[more]
