  • Dance

  • Photography
  • Textiles

The college has a proud record of sporting success, both during our annual sports day and in the number of our students who represent the school, county, region and even nation in sport. Current and past students have been national and international champions in sports ranging from trampolining to sailing.

No less impressive are our performing arts students, who, like their sporting peers, often act as the ‘face’ of the school in musical, dramatic and dance performances. In such productions, Arts College students can often be found at the forefront.

Just as celebrated and august are the art and design students, whose annual exhibitions and success in external competitions are a source of great pride for the college.

They know their students well and they work incredibly hard to teach them about personal, social, health and emotional (PSHE) issues. They care deeply about the welfare of our students and we are grateful and proud to have them in our team.
