Our mission is to empower creativity and enrich our world through transformative arts education and we are proud of the way our community of students, staff, governors, fellows, partners and alumni contribute to the benefit of our wider society. We have a good reputation and track record, but have ambitious plans to develop and grow our distinctiveness.
