Welcome from the Principal
We are very proud of what has been achieved at De Salis Studio College since its inception in September 2014, most notably being judged by Ofsted as Outstanding in February 2017. Our ethos is well established with a firm focus on high academic achievement and vocational outcomes for our students.
Attainment at GCSE has been consistently higher than the national average in the last two years of results, with 71% of students in 2018 achieving a grade 5 or above in five subjects and 64% attaining a grade 5 in English and mathematics (national average in 2018 was 39%).
De Salis Studio College is an outstanding school for students aged 14 to 19, which offers a choice of educational pathways that support academic excellence. In addition, De Salis students benefit from a unique learning environment that replicates the workplace. Students study criminology and law in a purpose built law court, economics and finance in the bank or on a professional trading floor, and retail in a fully functioning shop unit.
Our highly skilled and dedicated teachers, deliver an innovative Key Stage 4 and Post 16 curriculum in bespoke, state-of-the-art facilities. There can be no doubt that through our firm commitment to delivering the best possible opportunities for all our students, De Salis is a place 'where education means business’.
I hope you will take the opportunity to make contact soon as we relish the opportunity to welcome you to our college.
Mrs Ros Massey BA (Hons)
