Graduation Ceremony 2021

The achievements of our graduating students were celebrated last week at a special ceremony attended by the whole school community. It was an opportunity to come together to mark this important milestone and recognise the remarkable progression achievements of this year's students.

All those who took part agreed that it was a very poignant and happy occasion and a chance for tutors to say farewell to all the students they have worked with over the last two years. We wish the class of 2021 continued success and fulfilment as they take up their university places in the autumn.

Parliamentary Review

International School of Creative Arts is honoured to be part of the 2019 Parliamentary Review, an important innovation designed to bring together organisations that champion different sectors of education. ISCA is delighted to be recognised for its special contribution to art and design education in the UK.


As part of our continued involvement with The Parliamentary Review, we were asked to outline the measures ISCA has taken to provide a personalised and dynamic approach to online teaching despite the Covid-19 global pandemic. The piece encapsulates our response to the crisis and also what we have learnt through adapting our curriculum to maximise the remote learning experience.
