Creative Quarter Visit

Year 9 students attend event at the Victoria & Albert Museum

A group of Year 9 students had a very informative and enjoyable day at the Creative Quarter event at the Victoria and Albert Museum.  They participated in a Theatre Design Workshop and attended lectures from two senior designers at Jaguar. 

They also had a Q&A session with the inspirational Architect, Peter Ayres, Director at Beep Studio.  The students participated in lots of drop in activities: Finding out what is involved in being a makeup artist for stage and television, "what does creativity mean to you?", watching a Fashion show and talking to many graduates involved in creative sectors.

This is what the some of our students had to say about the day:

What I liked most about the day was the architect’s talk, he explained how you can take lots of different skills into architecture and this helped me to improve my growth mindset.
