Art & Design


We are proud of our reputation for helping students progress from an initial interest in art and design to university or employment.  

In our recent OFSTED inspection the art department was graded ‘Good’ and acclaimed for ‘outstanding long courses’. Students from level 3 ‘showed particular flair’. We provide an education that prepares students for the world of work, whether as self-employed, or employed in related areas. As well as being fully qualified teachers, our tutors are professional artists and designers and have extensive links with industry. OFSTED cited ‘very effective links with the profession across the board and student success in national awards’.

Our studios and workshops are equipped to industry standards. Kensington and Chelsea College is committed to maintaining specialist provision for the arts. We have dedicated Ceramic, Jewellery and Glass studios, and Mac suites, to name only a few. We are one of the few colleges in London to provide such a wide variety of specialist provision.
