The Creative Arts Academy at Itchen will enable you to pursue your creative aspirations, showcase your work publically and obtain excellent academic qualifications.
Unlike the Academy of Sport, our Creative Arts Academy is exclusive and only students who are taking certain subjects can be involved. For more information on the subjects which are involved in the Academy, please visit 'Our Subjects'.
The Academy comes with a range of facilities, including a brand new £1.7 million Performing Arts block. For more information on these state of the art facilities, please visit our 'Facilities' page.
Our new Creative Arts Academy will really boost students’ chances of making the important next step from college to either higher education or into the creative industries, as well as giving all our Creative Arts Academy students a stimulating and exciting experience.
