Art & Design

In partnership with Pendleton Sixth Form College and their School of Creative Arts and Design, we have courses available for those wanting to progress into a career within the artistic industries.

The School of Creative Arts and Design has a rich history of educating future artists and designers in preparation for a career in the creative industries. Our reputation for excellent progression and employability opportunities is reflected in our extensive list of alumni working across the creative sector.

Students have access to a range of specialist art rooms, 3D workshops, printmaking facilities, computer suites, industry and domestic sewing machines, and dedicated base rooms and gallery spaces, to allow development and the chance to exhibit work throughout the year. A new state-of-the-art design studio is also equipped with the latest industry software and colour printers, with additional photography labs supported by a lighting studio and darkroom facilities.
