The developments strengthen our provision in the digital arts and increase our unsupervised work and social areas to better accommodate our large number of post-16 students.
Our digital arts developments include an expanded and updated music technology classroom, improved digital film editing (including a specialist HD suite), DVD authoring equipment, improved ICT for multi-media and digital still photography.
