It’s completely FREE to study and train at LeAF Studio Sixth Form.
LS6 is a Studio School specialising in sport and performing arts. Based in Bournemouth, we provide a bespoke education for 16–19 year olds, combining a rigorous academic curriculum with practical, vocational training.
We opened in 2012 and moved into the state-of-the-art building in September 2013 which is proudly home to both Stage & Screen and the Athlete Academy. Since September 2017 we have been part of the Ambitions Academies Trust, a local group of thirteen schools.
Recognised by Ofsted as a GOOD school with outstanding features in 2019, we are regularly one of the top Studio Schools in England in terms of both our academic progress and vocational destinations.
Most internal and external students transition into LS6 with a clear specialism in either Sport or Performing Arts. Students can study vocational BTECs, academic A-levels or even a combination of both – all entirely dependent on their own career pathways.
Our aim is for every learner to be able to move seamlessly from LeAF Studio into employment, professional performance, or university; equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to purposefully engage in all of the challenges and opportunities they will experience.
