Posted by Hannah Vickers | March 07, 2017 | Secondary

The Cabot Learning Federation has invited Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal to officially open the new Digitech Studio School in Bristol.

The Princess Royal will spend about an hour touring the new building. HRH will meet with staff, students, parents, academy councillors and some of the business and industry representatives that have developed strong links with Digitech Studio School and the Cabot Learning Federation, including Airbus, Amey, Bloodhound, Boomsatsuma, Intel and Mango.

During the tour, The Princess will also experience a Bloodhound workshop project with students and visit the Creative Media area where students will be engaged in broadcasting on the school radio. This will be the launch of the radio network, which is designed to broadcast across the Cabot Learning Federation network.

I am delighted that HRH The Princess Royal will open our new building and we look forward to welcoming her and sharing the ethos and vision of Studio Schools - Lis Jolley, Digitech Studio School Principal

Digitech Studio School has the latest state-of-the-art technology and caters for 360 students between the ages of 14-19. As well as offering mainstream qualifications, including GCSEs and A-levels,  students also take part in regular work experience and employer-led workshops and projects.                                                                                    

 

The Princess Royal will conclude her visit by unveiling a commemorative plaque and will be presented with a posy of flowers and a small hamper of local foods from Digitech Head Boy, George Smith and Head Girl Elysia Wells.

Principal Lis Jolley said: “I am delighted that HRH The Princess Royal will open our new building and we look forward to welcoming her and sharing the ethos and vision of Studio Schools.”
