Our students engage and complete a range of projects based around these areas at KS3 and have the opportunity to specialise at KS4 as part of the Pathways Process in Year 9. KS4 courses include NCFE Graphics, WJEC Hospitality & Catering, AQA GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition and AQA Art & Design 3D and Eduqas Design & Technology GCSE. KS4 options are allocated 5 hours per fortnight and in KS3, students have 3 lessons per fortnight.

The Creative Studies department comprises six members of staff with a combined wealth of experience; the successful candidate will be joining a team of professionals working collaboratively to ensure that all students achieve their potential. The ethos of the department is one of mutual support where good practice and effective teaching resources are frequently shared. Open door classrooms promote the sharing of best practice and support our constant drive to develop and improve our pedagogy.

The department is fully supported by two technicians and houses traditional technology rooms with ensuite IT facilities in addition to the two specialist food classrooms. In Years 7-9, the department provides the resources for lessons, including ingredients for practical food lessons which reduces cost for parents and adheres to the school’s inclusive approach.

The new school is fully fitted and furnished with brand new facilities and software which is an exciting prospect for both staff and students.

Together, we aim to provide a balanced, exciting, creative and an inspiring curriculum which enables our students to build skills, knowledge and concepts that can be incorporated into a number of cross curricular subjects and activities. A strong emphasis is placed on all students achieving their full potential within a culture of high expectations and a drive to ensure that students receive inspirational, challenging and exciting teaching. We believe that supportive, positive working relationships are fundamental to creating an environment conducive to learning where students feel able to achieve.
