Why study Creative Subjects?

At Allerton Grange, we have a long tradition of supporting talented students to express themselves, develop skills and achieve excellent results across a range of creative subjects.

In Sixth Form, creative subjects include English Literature, English Language, Fine Art, Photography, Drama and Theatre Studies, Music, 3D Design and Hairdressing.

If your passion lies with creative subjects we recommend that you take some time to think about which subjects you have enjoyed the most at GCSE, which subjects you are best at and how the skills and qualifications you will get at Sixth Form will help you with your future career plans.

Studying a creative subject such as music or drama alongside your other subjects can be very helpful, as you will have the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills such as communication and presentation skills; resilience; how to work in a team and how to manage your time effectively.

What careers are Creative Subjects useful for?

There are a huge range of opportunities and careers available in the creative industries. For example: Graphic Designer, Product Designer, Furniture Designer, Fine Artist, Jewellery Designer, Textile Designer, Musician, Photographer, Performer, employment within galleries and museums, teaching, schools and education, advertising, the film industry, events planning and promotion.

Students studying Fine Art, 3D Design or Photography at A level may choose to study one of these subjects at university or art college. Some students complete a Foundation Course in Art and Design, before choosing their subject at degree level. This is a one year full time course, which allows them to explore the full range of options which are available.
