Pupils’ Palace date

Students from Mansfield’s Vision Studio School enjoyed a regal visit to London this week, joining other UK studio schools at Buckingham Palace.

At the inaugural Studio Schools Trust Student Convention, which was held in the ballroom at Buckingham Palace on Monday (12 October), guests were given presentations from other studio schools showing the work they have been doing since opening and their success to date.

Vision Studio School learner coach Sally-Ann Jones took students Tom Sefton, Katie Doughty (both 15) and Jessica Singleton (17), along to the meeting as a reward for their attendance, academic efforts and dedication to their work placements.

Sally said: “It was a really informative day and very good to hear how other studio schools across the country are thriving. To be able to visit Buckingham Palace was amazing and it really was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Former England footballer Sol Campbell was at the conference and hosted a question and answer session where students could ask about his life and success and learn about how to be the best they can be.

Vision Studio School opened in September 2014, and is sponsored by West Nottinghamshire College. It provides an exciting, vibrant and dynamic learning experience for young people aged 14-18 interested in engineering and transportation or health and care occupations.
