Manchester Creative Studio

Manchester Creative Studio is an employer led ‘studio school’. We provide young people aged 14-19 with the skills and knowledge they need or a career in the creative and digital industries.

With a maximum of only 150 places available every year, competition for places is high. There are 75 places available for Year 10 entry. At Sixth Form, priority is given to our existing students and all remaining places are offered externally. For the academic year starting September 2016 we envisage we will be able to offer 50 places for new students joining our sixth form.

Kifir: Year 10
“I came to MCStudio because I had a passion for the creative subjects. Being here has allowed me take my passion for art and move it forward, increasing my technicals skills, ready for work.
I have really enjoyed using programmes like photoshop and indesign to create a portfolio of work.”

Salihah, 18
L3, Art & Design – Graphics “I always had a passion for art and I joined MCStudio because this course offered me the chance to build a professional standard portfolio by experimenting with different art styles and digital techniques, all while gaining tips and advice from industry professionals who work with the college. I left with D*, D, D and I’m now off to university to study BA Graphic Design & Illustration!”

Michael, 17
L3, Games Design & Animation “Since joining MCStudio to study Games Design & Animation I haven’t looked back! In just one year I have learned lots of techniques and software such as After Effects and InDesign so that I have now started to create 3D environments for short films and animations. Next year I hope to hone these skills whilst working alongside MCStudio’s employer partners.”

What is a Studio School?


The term studio school comes from the renaissance studio schools, where renaissance masters would bring students into their studios to pass on their skills and expertise to the next generation.
