Breaks and lunchtimes

Only 6th Form students are allowed off site at morning break and lunch. Year 10 and 11 students must stay on site at break time and lunchtime unless parents have signed a consent form allowing the student to go home for lunch. Students with permission must obtain a pass. If you have a pass, you should leave the site the promptly and return for the afternoon session on time. Students should go straight home to their own house and not buy food from local shops.


All students are expected to bring a bag to school each day. This should be suitable to carry all the equipment required for your lessons and large enough to take a Laptop, an A4 ringbinder and books. You should always have writing equipment, (pen, pencil, eraser, ruler etc.) with you, we also recommend that students bring a mini-dictionary and a scientific calculator



School uniform plays a central role in creating a sense of unity, identity and belonging within our school community. The smart style of our new school uniform reflects the high standards we expect at The IKB Studio School. School uniform is compulsory for all students in years 10 & 11.

This guidance is intended to support parents in ensuring their child is dressed smartly, in keeping with the high expectations of the school. If you have any queries regarding the uniform code, including requests for financial assistance to buy uniform, please contact any member of the senior leadership team.

At IKB we operate a two week timetable which is synchronised with Wellsway Schools timetable.  This allows us to offer IKB Students a greater choice of subjects at KS4 and KS in the 6th Form.



The IKB Studio School operates a house system, we have established four houses which are:

  • Tesla
  • Shrödinger
  • Edison
  • DaVinci

Students will attend a morning registration period between 8.30am and 8.45am, this period is an opportunity for the tutors to relay important information for the day and ensure all students settle and prepare for their learning.

A reward and achievement system is in place at IKB which promotes high expectations and a sense of competition between the houses.




The IKB Studio School runs a coaching programme for all students. Students will receive a dedicated half an hours personal coaching with an assigned member of staff.

Coaching is about preparing students to meet the challenges of the real world, to focus on their soft skills, which we measure through the CREATE skills programme.

Typically coaching sessions are a positive meeting that reflects on:

  • Any intervention required
  • The progress of students’ academic work
  • The students work placement performance
  • The students aspirations for the future
