ABOUT US AND ETHOS
Our purpose is to prepare you for success in a fast moving digital world and, in particular, help create opportunities to work or launch businesses in the creative and digital industries. We’ve created an environment to inspire creativity and critical thinking, fed by the industry knowledge of our partners, that lead the sector across the region.
Our school is now five years old, and so for the first time our alumni includes people working in creative and digital across the country alongside those who have gone on to complete their university courses. Our former students run their own businesses from ideas born within our walls; games produced here are sold widely in the marketplace.
The creative and digital industries are changing the world at an unprecedented rate. We work closely with some of the most exciting and innovative businesses across the region to help shape our students’ experience, and ensure the skills we teach alongside our curriculum will prepare you for a successful career. These connections create opportunities for our students, to learn and work with the best.
All of the work we do here is designed for one thing – to help support our students; to prepare them to change the world through creativity and to give them the technology skills to solve the greatest challenges of our time.
Our school educates young people for success in a digital world and, in particular, for employment, entrepreneurship, a new business venture or further study in the digital media sector.
Our students are creators, rather than consumers, of technology and this empowers them to generate opportunities for themselves within this emerging sector. They are the future digital leaders who will use their expertise to improve the lives of others through the application of digital technology.
Some students apply their skills directly in the gaming, animation, digital marketing and computer technology sectors, others will work for businesses and other organisations that use digital media to develop products and services to connect with clients, consumers, patients and citizens.
