About Us

Wellsway Multi Academy Trust 

Wellsway Multi Academy Trust is a growing group of schools in east Bristol and Bath, incorporating Wellsway School, The Bath Studio School, Aspire Academy, Sir Bernard Lovell Academy, the IKB Studio School and St John’s CofE Primary School.

As a successful and high-performing school, Wellsway was selected by the Department for Education to become a school sponsor by establishing a Multi Academy Trust. This allowed us to bring the same commitment to excellence, quality of leadership and vision to the running of other local schools. Wellsway is delighted to be recognised in this way and to have the opportunity to support other schools, working closely together for mutual benefit.

Wellsway Multi Academy Trust is now a growing group of schools in East Bristol and Bath, incorporating Wellsway School, The Bath Studio School, Aspire Academy, Sir Bernard Lovell Academy and The IKB Studio School (opening autumn 2015).

What is a studio school?

Studio schools are small schools that offer a more personalised, vocational and academic curriculum and a culture and timetable that are more akin to a workplace than a conventional school. The Wellsway MAT’s two studio schools will each have 300 places.

They will both offer high-levels of employer engagement including enterprise projects and paid work placements, and a readiness for work programme to students aged 14-19. They will operate a longer school day with timetabled curriculum enrichment, a longer school year with a dedicated summer school and allow families to book holidays during term time.

Both of our studio schools will offer vocational and academic qualifications, including BTEC, GCSE and A-level, alongside a range of more vocational subjects, such as Journalism at The Bath Studio School and Engineering at The IKB Studio School. The studio schools will provide a different environment to that of a traditional school. Students will work with individual learning coaches, for example, and will wear business dress rather than school uniform.
