Artist Imogen Clark achieved an A in Photography, which she studied alongside Business and Media. Imogen has been offered two unconditional places at Falmouth University on the BA (Hons) Photography course and the BA (Hons) Press & Editorial course.
Director of Art, Paul Maxfield, said, “Students on the A level Art and Design course, the Photography A level course and the BTEC Art & Design Extended Diploma have all done exceptionally well this year. They have achieved the highest grades by pursuing their own creative journeys.”
At Millfield all students are given opportunities to explore their creative side and students benefit from some of the very latest facilities, housed in the school’s purpose-built Fine Arts Centre which includes the Atkinson Gallery.
Staff are all experts in their field, and they have the flexibility to teach across multiple disciplines, allowing students to cover a range of vocational and Fine Art courses to suit all interests and levels of ability, where they can engage in everything from drawing and painting to photography and computer aided design.
