About Us

It is important to us that students have high quality experiences of employability. This includes working alongside employers in school and in work experience. Digitech in a prime location offering links to businesses and employability opportunities in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Bath.

Digitech opened in 2015 and in November 2016 we moved into our beautiful new purpose-built building. Our school is in a prime location offering links to business partners and opportunities in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Bath.

Being part of the Cabot Learning Federation with its commitment to ‘Embedding Excellence’ and our strong emphasis on collaboration, means we work closely with other primary and secondary academies within the Federation.  Together we are responsible for educating over 8,000 students, which is a responsibility we all take seriously as we strive to provide an outstanding education for all.

Our Mission

Digitech Studio School is a unique community of learning for creative 14-19 year old students. It is designed on a small scale to give everyone access to personalised learning, where everyone is known and individual needs are met.

Digitech students are immersed in digital, creative and media technologies that give high level employability skills, experiences and national qualifications. These studies are underpinned by a core of English, Mathematics and Science, to create clear pathways to the future. Strategically structured projects with regular experience in the workplace allow students to move with technology into the future.

Digitech provides a specialised, nurturing and ambitious environment. It establishes partnerships with parents, employers and the wider community to develop our digital leaders of the future. It provides leadership opportunities for all students to demonstrate passion, pride, enterprise and endeavour as they develop pathways towards their future world of work.

The Digitech Way:

We believe that all students can be successful.

We value learning and have high expectations of ourselves and others.

We underpin our high tech, creative and digital curriculum with core learning in English, maths and science.

Our building is a creative and productive space flooded with beautiful and impressive student work.

We use our time wisely focusing on deep learning rather than breadth.

Students produce impressive outcomes that they are proud of.

We invite parents, employers and members of the public to look at our work and exhibit our work in spaces beyond the school.

We actively develop skills for the world of work through employer engagement, experiences of work, personal coaching and careers education.

We encourage students to take an interest in the world around us and to empathise and support others.

We develop British Values through respectful behaviours, student leadership, student voice, student council and PSHE.

We keep each other safe.

Working for Us

Our Academy is part of the Cabot Learning Federation and benefits from all the advantages of being part of a group of academies.

Children visit other academies for sports and other events such as language or science activities.  Students from the secondary academies visit us for to perform drama and take part in sports activities, as well as lead some of them.  We share good practice between academies and teachers from all academies in the Federation visit the other academies for professional development.

Here at the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF), we like to celebrate. We celebrate exam results, collaboration, achievement, innovations and new ideas; we celebrate the determination of our students; we celebrate the amazing role played by staff; and we celebrate the efforts and successes of our team.

We celebrate the small achievements and the big. But far from being self-congratulatory, we are always looking to learn, to improve education and to make a positive difference for students and their families. And that's where you come in.

 At the CLF, we value your experience, skills, expertise and ideas. We expect you to help us to be the very best education provider, and in return we will listen and support you to take your career in whichever direction you choose.

With the CLF you can be a leader, find solutions, become an expert, close the gaps and inspire and influence.  The range of roles and opportunities in the CLF is as diverse as the communities we serve.

Or you may simply want to fulfil your defined role to the very best of your abilities.
