Studio West is an exciting studio school which opened in September 2014. As part of Kenton Schools Academy Trust which incorporates Kenton School, Studio West currently caters for around 300 students. Our mission is to ensure that every student who leaves Studio West does so with a university or college place, an apprenticeship or a job.

Initially opening to students aged 13-19, in September 2017, we became a full secondary school expanding to open from age 11. We are over-subscribed for year 7 and expanding rapidly due to our success. We are committed to the studio school concept of offering mainstream qualifications (including GCSEs, A Levels, and Occupational and professional qualifications), combined with an innovative and personalised curriculum for every student focused on developing key employability and life skills required by employers.

We know the key to our success will be having a strong team committed to the ethos of the school with the skills, dedication and passion to motivate and instill high expectations in every child.

We are seeking applications for the post of Technician to support our team in the setting up and dismantling of equipment and resources, ordering stocks and supplies and maintaining our databases.

We are seeking candidates with excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to work well with both children and adults. A knowledge of health and safety with the ability to carry out risk assessments is essential.

Whilst the role will involve working across all teaching departments, a large proportion of working time will be spent supporting Art and Technology therefore a relevant qualification and/or experience working in either discipline would be desirable.

Post holders will be required to move, set up and dismantle equipment on a regular basis, i.e. lift bags of clay, therefore candidates must be able to fulfil this requirement of the role. The successful applicant will be required to use their initiative to keep their areas of responsibility running smoothly.

If you feel you have the experience, skills and attributes to succeed as part of our team, you can visit our website or email us for an application pack at
