Logic Studio School officially opened its doors last week when it welcomed its first cohort of students for induction day!
Year 10 and Year 12 students enjoyed a taste of just how Logic is different to other schools, as they took part in a series of master classes run by leading experts in the business of sport, fashion and entertainment. The day was indicative of the School’s unique approach, as students will be learning from both teachers and leading industry experts during their time at Logic.
“It’s a great day for the students of Hounslow,” says Principal Jay Lockwood. “Logic Studio School is now open for business and our Induction Day certainly set the tone of what’s in store for our students. I’m ambitious for each and every one of them. They’ve chosen a school that will open up a whole range of opportunities that they just couldn’t get anywhere else – including six weeks work experience each year, a project-based approach to learning and a personal coach.”
Internationally renowned sports businessman Colin Nell enthralled students with his talk on the Business of Sport. He charted the journey of his career, from leaving Feltham Community College to becoming infamous for his freestyle footballing skills, and then building his sports entertainment business. He was incredibly motivating, encouraging students to focus on developing the skills that will be of use to their future careers.
Other master classes were run by Hannah Ollichion, founder of the House of Ollichion, a bridal fashion label recently crowned ‘winner of best newcomer’ for UK bridal fashion. In one master class, she focused on how to be a successful woman in business.
The popular music entertainment company, Ace of Jacks, also ran a series of incredibly popular master classes. The company is renowned for providing a wide range of professional music-related services including Ace of Jacks radio. Students were able to choose from three different sessions, depending on what interested them: ‘Developing a digital app’, ‘Building brand awareness via social media’, and ‘Digital artwork’.
Students also had plenty of time to meet the rest of their year group and all of our new Logic members of staff, along with enjoying the chance to socialise during a Hog Roast lunch.
“Today’s students will be entering an incredibly competitive world,” concludes Jay. “So they need much more than just good grades to succeed. Our students will have all the skills, knowledge & confidence to really stand out, and be highly employable, when they leave Logic. Today’s induction day was the first of many stand out experiences they’ll encounter over the next few years at Logic.”
There’s still time for students to join us in Year 10 and Year 12 this September – just get in touch!
