The outgoing Year 11 pupils at The Da Vinci Studio School of Creative Enterprise in Letchworth have developed their academic abilities, in tandem with essential work and life skills.

Principal Karen Barker said: “The qualifications gained today, supported by high quality work experience placements, and the development of life skills such as teamwork, resilience, communication and problem solving, have set up the students with impressive CVs, enabling them to take up further study in areas such as media, art, fashion, production arts and A-levels across Da Vinci and our local partners.”

Students at the Da Vinci Studio School had the opportunity to study Level 2 BTEC qualifications in art, design, digital media and production arts alongside their GCSEs. One of five students who gained a distinction star in BTEC digital media was Elise Lambert.

She said: “Coming to Da Vinci has allowed me to reach my full potential and I’m so pleased with my results.”

Celebrating achieving a distinction star grade in BTEC art was Sarah Wigglesworth who is now progressing on to study a Level 3 Extended Diploma in art and design at North Hertfordshire College.

Rowan Godfrey was extremely pleased with his distinction grade achieved in digital media. He is continuing his studies at the Da Vinci Studio School, progressing onto the Level 3 Extended Diploma in digital media.
