One year on: Official opening marks anniversary of Bicester’s new Studio School

On Friday 23 June, Bicester Technology Studio (BTS) celebrated its first year of opening.

The school, which opened to Year 10 and Year 12 students in September, was officially opened by Victoria Prentis MP, along with representatives from the governing body and several employer partners.

Victoria said: “I was delighted to open the new Bicester Technology Studio and have the opportunity to meet staff and students.

“It is really important that young people have access to a wide range of educational resources, and are able to choose a learning pathway that suits them best. Technological and employability skills are vital in our ever changing economy, particularly as we begin the process of leaving the EU.

“The school offers pupils a wide range of interesting, and highly skilled opportunities, which will set them up for their future careers.

“I look forward to visiting the school again in the near future.”
