Students at studio school start specialising in space technology, science and maths

An Oxfordshire school has opened its doors for pupils who want to work in the space industry.

Space Studio Banbury (pictured) will mix academic studies with work-based training, and students will work from 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

The curriculum will be based around space technology, science and maths to its first set of 75 teenage students who were selected on their passion and enthusiasm for maths and science.

The school will be run by the Aspirations Academy Trust and will eventually take 300 pupils aged 14 to 18.

Principal Mike Grocott said: “This will be a journey for students that will take them around the world so therefore anyone that has joined the school will have a passion for science or maths.”
