Arts education in Golborne

Kensington & Chelsea College on Wornington Road – no longer earmarked for demolition and replacement with flats thanks to an active community campaign – has a range of exciting creative arts courses starting in January 2019. Pictured here you can see some of this year’s students running a Portobello Road stall selling items they’ve made themselves.

Courses are available in a selection of subjects including graphic design, jewellery, ceramics, glass and digital multi-media and interior design. Students of all ages attend the college for its excellent teaching. Many are in the 16 to 19 age bracket and attend the college as an alternative to school sixth form. Teaching of this age group was rated as “good” at the last Ofsted inspection in 2017. The report said, “Much provision on the creative arts programmes and for English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) is of high quality.”

And in an illustration of the standards of teaching at the College, this year three students studying glass making as part of their BTEC Art and Design course were shortlisted for the ‘Inspired by V&A’ awards. Competition was stiff with 200 entries competing for the awards. And one of the three Kensington nominees, Janine Greenberg, won the Glass and Stained Glass category award outright.
