I've just seen your orchid school on Countryfile and all I can say is Wow!!! I'm in awe of the dedication of your students. As a trainee Design Technology teacher and former Florist, this would be a dream as an NQT year!!
Such a wonderful opportunity for our students.

As a small school of around 200 students, The Mendip Studio School offers a supportive, personalised learning environment in which strong pastoral care runs throughout the school’s activities. This helps to ensure that no young person gets lost within the institution and that young people are able to build strong relationships with their peers and coaches. Crucially, coaches know students well, making them better able to tailor the curriculum to their individual needs and aspirations.
