Welcome to Create

The Learning Area for Art & Design, Catering, 2D Design, 3D Design and Photography.

The learning environment within Create has had a lot of investment over the last few years with two new modern food rooms, a new Photography room equipped with high specification computers and software and a refurbishment of the workshops that include a laser cutter, plasma cutter, CNC routers and a 3D printer.  

Over the last few years the area has opted for more practical based projects that allow students to express themselves freely and select the right pathways as they move up the school.  We currently run the Art & Design BTEC qualification which offers students the chance to swap between Art, 2D Design (Graphics) and 3D Design (Resistant Materials), or alternatively stay in the same subject.  We are also looking at adopting an even further flexible approach by developing more assignments that explore alternative BTEC Units such as photography, Textiles, Ceramics and Fashion.  We also run GCSEs in Photography and Catering, both of which are very popular and successful subjects.

As part of the Winton Academy policy of ‘learning beyond the classroom’, the Create area offers many opportunities that support student development, including local, regional and international trips, working with artists/clients on live projects, links with local colleges and feeder schools and after school clubs. Students are also encouraged to enter their creative work/ideas in competitions.

The Learning area is vibrant, flexible and welcoming. 

If you would like any further information on the Create learning area please feel free to contact us.
