Inspire Enterprise Academy (formerly Southampton Studio School) was a Studio school located in Southampton, designed for students aged 14–19 who intended to pursue a career in business and enterprise.[1] It was founded in 2013 as part of the Studio Schools Trust. The school combined project-based learning and business experiences, with academic achievement, aimed at equipping students with a diverse range of skills. In September 2014 Inspire Enterprise Academy's sister, the Isle of Wight Studio School, opened on the Isle of Wight.

On 6 July 2015 the school announced that it would close at the end of the academic year.[2] The school formally closed in August 2015. Children in Year 10 were offered a transfer to the Isle of Wight Studio School.[2]
