Welcome to the Northern School of Creative Industries

The Northern School of Creative Industries

The Northern School of Creative Industries is at the cutting edge of creative education and is a perfect place to study in terms of entry into the Creative Industries. With its roots in the Bradford School of Art dating back over 100 years, we have a strong reputation and a long history of providing creative education. 

I am very proud that our ethos, our commitment to creative learning is placed within a world-class creative environment in which you can experiment freely and where the possibilities are endless. This is why we have some of the best National Student Survey results in the country as well providing a learning experience that enables over half of our students to achieve the highest possible grades.

We are committed to providing you with a creative education that will allow you to discover new possibilities that will enable you to understand how and what you need to work within the wider creative economy. All our tutors and staff are expert practitioners in their field, we have world class facilities (in particular across TV and film production, theatre and TV design, production arts and stage management, media make up, music and performance).

I am delighted that you are interested in the Northern School of Creative Industries and all it offers, but don't just take it from me, please come and see us either on a formal open day or whenever suits you. You will be truly amazed.
