Creative

pathways amongst Concord’s extraordinary 2020 leavers

Thursday October 1, 2020

Concord’s ‘Class of 2020’ were amongst the college’s record-breakers, with the year group achieving most impressive grades: 85.2% A*/A and 95.8% A*/B (top three years’ results in Concord’s history) – and a number of students left to pursue ‘a range of creative pathways’. Concord’s Head of Art explained that students received offers from UK and world-renowned art and design institutions, to study a variety of disciplines. “We are so proud of our Class of 2020 artists, as they’ve left us to make their way along a range of creative pathways. “This year we had two students heading off to The Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL, with Noey studying Architecture and May studying Urban Planning and Design Management. “Both students performed exceptionally well throughout their time with us, showing creativity, ideas and incredible drawing skills.” London was a popular destination for other aspiring artists and designers too. Mr Hudson said: “Also heading to London, are Jess and Apple, both of whom will be taking their talents to Central St Martins at UAL. “I am sure they will fly high in such an inspirational environment and it must be so exciting for them to take their places in such a world-renowned art and design institution.” Outside of London, ‘potential architects of the future’, Molly and Emily have headed to study to study at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff, and Loughborough University respectively. “Once again, these girls leave us having made some wonderful, thought-provoking work and I am sure they will go on to do very well indeed. “The final one of our students taking her tremendous artistic talent out into the world is Selina. “Selina will be building on her well-deserved A* in Fine Art and I have no doubt we will hear much more of her in the future as she embarks on her Product Design Degree at the University of Leeds.” Mr Hudson added: “Once again, we are so proud of the way our young creatives challenged themselves in our department and how they dealt with the potential setbacks they encountered. “I am confident that they leave us ready to make many more bold statements with their work and use their skills, ideas and imaginations to really make a difference.”
