Your Future

Creative study through the medium of Textiles is a rewarding activity.  It develops independent thinking and personal creativity which then could lead to further study or a lifetime hobby.  We will accept grades A* - B at GCSE to be able to continue to study at AS level.  Groups are small so there is a great emphasis on developing pupils’ individuality.   Pupils who have an A level in Textile Design can then study at degree level.  Careers options after completion of a Textiles degree are wide-ranging, including fashion, interior design, costume and set design, teaching, buying and merchandising.
