To ask Her Majesty’s Government which studio schools were operating in the 2014–15 academic year; and how many year 10, 11, 12 and 13 pupils were (1) enrolled in each of them at the date of the October 2014 school census, and (2) included in the budget forecast return submitted by each school to the Education Funding Agency in June 2014.

Thirty university technical colleges (UTCs) and 37 studio schools are open in the 2014-15 academic year and listed in the attached table, with the exception of 4 studio schools that are schools within schools and do not have separate pupil census data.

The numbers of year 10, 11, 12 and 13 pupils enrolled in each institution at the date of the October 2014 school census are also in the table below, alongside the number of students each institution has been funded for. These ‘funded for’ numbers are only available at pre-16 and post-16 level. Where the funded number has been based on an estimate but the actual number of pupils on roll as per the October census is higher the school will receive additional funding later that year. Where the actual number is lower than the estimate the funding is re-paid to the Department in the following academic year.

Some UTC and studio schools also report pupils in year 9, 14 and X (pupils not assigned to a particular year group). These have been included for completeness. ‘Supp’ denotes supressed low pupil counts (of less than 3).

Most UTCs and studio schools that opened in September 2014 will have year 10 (or 9) and year 12 pupils only.
