What our students say

Art, Design and Media Student Gill Crouch

Gill Crouch

In the first year, the course is really broad and covers so many different areas within art & design—ranging from textiles and photography to animation and 3D work. This gives you the chance to try everything and explore and experiment a little before you decide how you want to specialise. It broadens your horizons and is an opportunity I’ve really welcomed.”

Gill Crouch, former pupil of Priory Community School in Weston-super-Mare, hopes to progress on to the apprenticeship in Leather Goods with Mulberry.
