Extra-curricular opportunities

Our faculty is frequently open out of lessons to students wanting to continue class work or develop work of their own. The students’ work branches out of the faculty and into several exhibition areas around the academy.

The faculty takes part in a great deal of external competitions and initiatives and we have secured lottery funding to be able to run our “Let’s Get Cooking” club. We also enlist the services of a small group of students and train them up to be a professional sign writing team. Art clubs are also available to all years during selected lunchtimes.

Our faculty strives to create talented, thoughtful and creative young people. The staff members in our faculty are talented and enthusiastic individuals with a number of years of professional experience, who exhibit their work around the country.
