Our School

Plymouth School of Creative Arts is a 4-16 mainstream, city centre, all-through school sponsored by Plymouth College of Art. We opened our primary phase in September 2013 and we have opened our secondary phase in September 2014.

Our vision for Plymouth School of Creative Arts grows out of an established art college ethos in response to the serious erosion of the arts and creativity in schools. Founded in 1856, Plymouth College of Art has a long history as an independent specialist in arts, craft, design and media education in Plymouth and the South West.

Our school is a place for making things – making ideas, making technology, making art – for discovering how knowledge, values and language, identity or experience is made. It is a place of performance in both senses: performance as doing; performance as achievement. A place of creative learning in all subjects.

Our goal is to secure academic excellence and our learners’ ambitions through structure with a purpose, and our purpose can be described in just four words – Creating Individuals, Making Futures.
