Performing Arts, Design & Technology
The Creative Arts department includes Art, Dance, Design Technology, Drama, Food, Music and Photography.
Within the subjects, teachers aim to provide a variety of artistic activities that allow students to use their imaginations, creativity, and express ideas in a variety of mediums. The faculty is a high-energy and stimulating environment that has high expectations of all students, provides opportunities to develop their skills and talents and continually celebrates their success throughout the year.
The department helps students develop their skills in preparation for a potential career in the Creative Industries and a variety of transferable skills that are recognisable as vital in the workplace, such as developing creativity and independent thought, learning to express themselves, understanding and celebrating different cultures and developing their social, emotional and intellectual well-being.
Within the department, there are a range of specialist rooms and equipment to help students to make the best progress and develop their abilities. We encourage students to take part in extracurricular activities and clubs to increase skills and self-confidence.
