Students at the School work within a professionally-oriented environment, where the history of the art form is understood and respected, whilst its boundaries are examined and questioned. Within the degree curriculum an enhanced academic programme has been developed to promote broader life skills, such as critical thinking and the ability to research independently, although the School’s ethos has remained unchanged for over a hundred years.
