Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio is a 13-19 mainstream Studio School based in Darwen, Lancashire. We specialise in Creative Digital Media, ICT and Computing, and Health, Social and Child Care.
We are part of the North West cluster of the Aldridge Education Multi-Academy Trust. We are a small school (300 capacity) catering for young people of all abilities. Alongside GCSEs, BTECs and A Levels, the Studio offers a specialised curriculum, developing students’ employability skills and engaging them with local businesses. We offer a balanced curriculum with the opportunity to specialise, and wherever possible we engage students in ‘real life’ activities as part of their learning.
On graduating from the Studio, our students will have the skills and resilience to secure purposeful jobs, apprenticeships or go on to further study.
