Creative Arts

About the Faculty

Pupils who study one of the creative arts at Christ College have a real opportunity to build up their creative skills and express themselves in original and inventive ways.

Our creative arts pupils have the advantage of studying in inspiring departments. Our art pupils gain inspiration in the beautiful listed building that overlooks the River Usk, while our photography pupils have full access to two fully-equipped and specially adapted studios, a dark room and a classroom furnished with MAC computers. Drama is located at the heart of the school with a modern theatre comprising of 300 seats, and a drama studio and exhibition gallery to ensure the talents of the Creative Arts pupils are appreciated by all.

Outside of the classroom, we enjoy taking our pupils on many stimulating trips to help boost their studies. Trips have included annual trips to London as well as overseas visits to Prague, Barcelona and the opportunity to perform at the Basilica of St Peter in the Vatican City.

We are delighted to see a number of our senior school pupils excel within the creative arts, with many of our music pupils undertaking the well-respected Royal School of Music ABRSM examination and more than 48 percent achieving distinctions, while a significant number work towards applications at the prestigious London Academy of Music and Drama Arts (LAMDA) with an outstanding 100 percent pass rate in the past year.
