"Through bizarre and challenging times, it has been a pleasure to work with such lovely, talented and engaging students. The excellent work that has been produced across both year groups is testament to their dedication and hard work. I have no doubt the current Extended Diploma students going off to various university places in September, all have a bright future ahead of them. Likewise, our first year fashion group which is full of such vibrant, lively and incredibly talented students, have shown just how capable they are of progressing on to an exciting career within the fashion industry."
Craig Holmes: Tutor
The student’s courage to tackle obstacles head on, whilst still being creative and producing some fantastic work, has been outstanding. It has been a privilege to be part of all the students’ journeys, not just throughout the final part of their second year, but also through these historical moments during COVID 19. Well done to them all!
