Big Creative Academy continues to go from strength to strength, from achieving an Ofsted grade ‘Good’ in our inspection, to the continued development of an arts-based curriculum with the University of the Arts.

This year we are excited to announce that we are now an associate school of Sadler’s Wells Theatre, who are working with us to develop our performing arts and dance curriculum.

Our young people are out there in industry forging their own path, with over 95% progressing onto University, setting up their own business, or securing employment in the creative sector, all following their passion for the arts. I’m very proud of our learners and the strength of character they have to achieve their ambitions. Big Creative Academy values that ambition and drives it forward with a focus on wellbeing and character education, underpinning everything we do and delivered through a dedicated programme and series of workshops.

Our focus on celebrating diversity, championing everybody and our continued work as a DfE best practice school for LGBT+ provides a place for everybody to come, learn and immerse themselves in a creative environment. Our teaching team are all industry professionals and we’re very proud to have our Fashion tutor launching a new collection at New York Fashion week. This focus on creativity – combined with the top-notch skills you will learn on your course designed by UAL, London – will set you apart from your competitors. With the opening of the new £21m Creative Academy in September 2020, come join us and be part of something amazing! Your success is our success… I look forward to working with you.

Big Creative Academy Campus

A visionary building

Big Creative Academy is constructing a new, visionary building for our specialist creative arts academy.

Work has started on a £21m investment funded by the Department for Education on our Clifton Avenue campus. The building will house industry standard facilities for our courses for 16-23 year olds in Fashion, Makeup, Performing Arts, Media, Music, Technical Theatre, Art & Design and Health and Fitness.

The vision we have for Big Creative Academy is coming alive. It’s more important than ever that our young people are trained to have technical, industry-standard skills they can take into the real world, and for communities to come together. We look forward to welcoming you all.
