Our aim is to provide a sense of security and an atmosphere of respect out of which student's creativity can flourish. We encourage our students to engage with all aspects of art, craft and design and work together to develop the quality and range of courses, facilities and experiences available to our students. We recognise our responsibility for raising students awareness and understanding of the potential future opportunities available through a good education in a creative subject. We look to share our passion for the subject, subsequently engaging, enthusing and building the confidence of every student.

Ian Murphy Drawing Workshop

Talented students from each year group recently participated in a two day drawing workshop with artist Ian Murphy. Using local architecture as subject matter, the students explored a range of techniques using graphite and collage to create multi-layered and atmospheric drawings.
