In Creative Arts there are a wide range of subjects that have their own skills and tradition but also share common ground since they are all concerned with engaging young people in the acts of making, creating, problem solving, responding, appraising and evaluating.
The Creative Arts 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 Arts 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 work place:
Developing creativity and independent thought
Learning to express themselves
Understanding and celebrating different cultures
Developing their social, emotional and intellectual well-being
The Arts aim to develop excellence in young people by developing engagement in learning and self-esteem. So let your imagination go wild!
