If you are creative with an interest in the arts we have a range of A Level and vocational courses based at our English Bridge Campus. Working through a range of materials and outcomes will enable you to choose your ideal pathway for further study.
Courses include A Levels in Fine Art, Graphic Communication, Photography and Textiles. We also offer Diplomas at Levels 2 and 3 in Art& Design, Level 3 Diplomas in Photography and Fashion, and the Level 3/4 Foundation Diploma in Art & Design (awarded by the University of the Arts London, the only specialist art and design awarding body).
Our professional workshops provide a vibrant and stimulating environment, as well as the skills of our specialist tutors, many being practising professional artists and designers with extensive links in the industry. A huge range of part-time hobby and professional development courses are also on offer.

In 2017 we secured nearly £500,000 from the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership via its Growth Deal with Government to develop one of three advanced manufacturing training hubs in the region. The College continues to seek further opportunities with the LEP.

A Level Fine Art (Biology and English Literature)
Previous Institution: Priory School
Art at Shrewsbury Colleges Group is so expansive, it’s not just all about portraiture. Your ideas can be endless and the teachers allow you to explore all forms. I really enjoy A Level Art, it’s something I do at College and a hobby for me at home.
I have learnt many new techniques whilst on the printmaking course with Jay. We have been able to explore individual ideas with just the right amount of support and guidance in a relaxed and creative environment. I am excited to continue printing at home, having discovered a process I love.
A Level Fine Art (Graphic Communication, Spanish)
Previous Institution: Bishop's Castle Community College
The A Level course is so much more in-depth than GCSE – which is great. I will be taking a gap year and travelling, then I would like to explore Interior Design as a career. My final pieces focused on architecture and windows using stencils and digital art. Digital art is something that I really appreciated learning about.
HNC in Fashion and Textiles
The course has given me great opportunities to explore different fashion and textile techniques with support from experienced tutors. It has helped me advance both my skills and confidence in current industry standards.
