Art and design

The Design Technology and Art Faculty is made up of two product design workshops, two art studios, two food technology rooms as well as a textiles room and a fully equipped catering and hospitality kitchen.

Each room contains a range of equipment and materials including state-of-the-art CAD/CAM machinery.

The main aim of the faculty is to give students the opportunities, skill and experience needed to become complete, inventive designers and artists. Students will gain an expansive knowledge and experience of a wide range of materials, presentation and application skills that will allow them to develop their creative flair and problem solving abilities.

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.
