Creative Arts


Please visit our dedicated faculty website at www.creatavi.co.uk to see much more about us.

The Faculty of Creative Arts joins the artistic areas of Art, Creative Media, Drama, Dance, Music and Photography together. We aim to offer students a broad and varied curriculum teaching not only artistic skills but giving students means and methods to explore their creative ideas. At the heart of what we strive to do is a clear philosophy of the importance of arts education – not only for emerging artists but as a training ground for creativity.

The Creative Arts are one of the most vital subject areas on any school’s curriculum. Their language is truly universal. Every culture explores its passions and fears through drama, dance, music and art. Regardless of gender, ability and belief, students respond intuitively to these modes of expression, and through them explore and communicate issues of morality and identity in a unique way, which enriches and personalizes their education. The social skills acquired during creative group work decision making, adaptability, negotiation, listening to options and the justification of your own ideas are imperative to personal development, arguably all other subject areas and the rapidly changing environment of the workplace.
