And We’re Back.

It’s September, all our students are back, and we’re into the swing of things relatively quickly and with great ease. A sincere thank you to Karen, Lucy, Simon and Darren who wrote such great profiles for us for the first crop of ‘Past Graduates’ blogs - we see they’ve been very popular with our regular visitors to the site.

In keeping with promoting our Alumni who’ve gone out into the world and made their mark locally, nationally and internationally, listed below are the awards, student assessment schemes, and publications our current students and recent graduates have been involved with over the last five years. As you’ll see, they've been busy and very successful.

We’ll post some first year photography shortly, as image making is something we haven’t blogged much about in our sophomore year in operation.
