NEW Creative Centre Opens!
7th Nov 2014

The Creative Industries are booming and All Hallows wants children to be prepared.  A new and exciting Creative Design Centre is now open enhancing the excellent Art and Ceramics already on offer.  Led by new Head of Creative Design and Technology, Berin Nelson, this new centre is offering many new design and technology based opportunities.  But forget the wood working desks and metal working vices of days gone by, this new, inspiring space feels more like a London Design Studio and houses cutting edge 2D and 3D design technology, facilities for coding, Laser Cutting and 3D printing, Animation, Digital Photography and much more.  The Centre is also serving as a driving force to enhance creativity throughout the already innovative curriculum on offer.

 

It is the intention that the All Hallows Creative Centre forges and maintains strong links with the ‘real’ Creative World, Berin explains why:

“We are committed to ensuring that the opportunities offered are current, relevant and exciting and that the curriculum evolves continuously to keep pace with the real world.  We want to really ‘fuse’ the disciplines and demonstrate to the children that ideas can be brought to life in a number of ways with the help of technology and creativity and we aim to enlist the help of specialists along the way to inspire the children.”  

Head, Trevor Richards, explains why the opening of this new facility is so important:  

“There are many paths to a happy and fulfilled life.  At the heart of All Hallows ethos has long been a desire to truly prepare children for the world they will inhabit and contribute to.  The industries with their roots in culture and creativity are an important and growing source of jobs and wealth creation and the sector is outperforming the UK economy as a whole.  All Hallows intends to be at the forefront of Prep School education in terms of preparing children for this future job market.”
