LABOUR'S education spokesman has visited H&F’s first studio school as it nears the end of its first academic year.
MP Stephen Twigg, Shadow Secretary of State for Education, was given a tour of the £1million Fulham Enterprise Studio on Monday (May 13) which was opened by Prince Andrew in September.
The school offers vocational specialisms in construction and production arts, alongside regular GCSEs, to provide pupils with hands-on skills to gain jobs.
It has joined the Fulham College federation of schools including Fulham Cross Girls and Fulham College Boys.
Bernie Peploe, executive principal, of Fulham College Academy Trust, said: “We were delighted to be able to give Stephen Twigg first hand insight into the way Fulham Enterprise Studio works, as it is otherwise difficult to explain the true value for young people of combined national curriculum teaching and work and life-skills experience and coaching.”
