What next?

Many of our students’ progress onto either art foundation courses at local collages or art related undergraduate courses. Irrespective of whether students are pursuing a career in the arts we are confident that skills such as creativity and problem solving are highly sought after on many degree courses. As a result, an A-Level in Art, Craft and Design complements other subjects superbly.
