We have an artist in residence and regularly host artists as well as creating opportunities to work alongside local galleries and arts charities.
Photography is a popular subject in which students are encouraged to experience and experiment with a broad range of different lens-based techniques and processes, developing independence and flexibility. Work is frequently exhibited in our lively and bustling Shaw Gallery, while students regularly visit exhibitions both in the UK and abroad. Each year, several students advance to professional careers within the expanding fields of photography, art and design.
Through practical projects, students use materials and techniques to create functional solutions. The department is exceptionally well resourced and boasts some of the best facilities in the country. All the teaching areas are equipped with up-to-date resources, including 3D printers and laser cutters, allowing students to design and manufacture products to the highest standard.
Co-curricular clubs and societies, including Light Sabre Building, Drone Club, and Engineering, also provide an excellent foundation for the product designers, engineers and architects of the future.
We also celebrate participation and excellence in the Arts with our annual Trinity Arts Festival. Past festivals have included our Art and Photography Summer Exhibitions, a buskers’ lunch and a performance from the Trinity Boys’ Choir at Boxpark Croydon.
