Welcome to Dorset Studio School

Dorset Studio School is a specialist land and environment based provision, situated in a beautiful rural environment – meeting the needs of our rural community.

Dorset Studio School is co-sponsored by a unique partnership with Kingston Maurward College – a specialist land-based Further Education institution – and The Thomas Hardye School an outstanding specialist science school.

Focused on developing the key employability and life skills required by employers

Located in Dorchester, in the heart of Dorset, the Studio School will specialise in environment and land-based sciences. It will explore how the land works to deliver educational excellence and opportunity by making the most of our rich natural resources while responding to employer and wider community needs.

We welcome students in the 13 – 19 age range and provide them with a learning programme that is academically challenging, whilst also focusing on the vocational skills that enhance future employment opportunities
