The Creative Arts and Technologies Department is a thriving and dynamic area which caters for over 500 students studying a range of A-level, vocational and enrichment courses in Media, ICT and Art. Staff have high expectations of all students and working relationships are positive and supportive. There is an excellent record of student achievement on all courses. Staff work closely together in planning the delivery of courses, developing teaching materials and exchanging ideas, resources and teaching strategies. The department values an approach to teaching Media which addresses issues of power and inequality worldwide and the media's role in these phenomena.
The department has recently benefitted from significant upgrading of our already well-resourced IT/Media facilities. Lessons take place in dedicated teaching rooms with excellent facilities for photographic, graphic, HD film and video sound editing. Students benefit from access to high quality video and digital filming cameras and a range of software to enhance their production work including Premiere, After-Effects, Photoshop, and Blender. Media and Film students have a record of producing outstanding film and print coursework and frequently win awards in regional and national competitions.
The aim of the department is to enrich the learning experience of our students by delivering the syllabus in a manner which is contemporary, varied and challenging. The Department benefits from its links with the Central Studio, (onsite Theatre) with music practice rooms and a sound recording studio. There are excellent facilities to access traditional and digital print making alongside photographic darkroom facilities, an editing suite and a television recording studio.
