What our students say

Art & Design Student Elena Huntley

Elena Huntley

My course helped me grow in independence and confidence and taught me how to effectively develop ideas, allowing me to produce work which is very individual and well informed. This was invaluable in my university interviews where they were all surprised at the advanced level of photography I have been producing and I have received unconditional offers from all of my chosen universities.”

Former pupil of Haygrove School is, planning to go to university to study a BA (Hons) in Photography, to further develop her career aspirations to work as an Editorial Photographer.

Art & Design Student Matt Bucknall

Matt Bucknall

After completing my degree at St Martins I stayed in London and gained employment as a graphic designer. Since then I’ve worked for a range of companies including Black Dog Publishing and Jack Wills and have worked on projects for Nike and Glastonbury Festival. During that time I built a reputation and was able to become self employed as a result. It’s been hard work getting to where I am today but I love every minute of what I do.”

Former pupil of Bridgwater College and Chilton Trinity in Bridgwater, Matt is a self-employed Graphic Designer.
