Creative Arts

Welcome to the vibrant and dynamic Creative Arts Department at Stranraer Academy, where innovation meets tradition, and creativity knows no bounds. Our dedicated team of passionate educators is committed to nurturing the artistic talents of our students, offering a comprehensive curriculum that spans the Broad General Education (BGE), National Qualifications, Higher, and Advanced Higher levels in Art and Design, Music, and Drama.

At Stranraer Academy, we believe in the power of the arts to inspire, challenge, and transform. The foundation of our arts education begins with the Broad General Education, where students explore and develop their creative potential across a spectrum of artistic disciplines.

In Art and Design, students embark on a journey of self-discovery and artistic growth. They master the techniques of drawing and painting, delve into digital design, and explore various artistic mediums, fostering a deep appreciation for artistic expression.

The Music curriculum embraces the diversity of musical genres and instruments. Students develop their musical talents through engaging lessons, ensemble performances, and individual projects, building a solid foundation in both theory and practice.

In Drama, students explore the dramatic arts through scriptwriting, acting, and stage production. They develop essential skills such as communication, collaboration, and creative problem-solving in a supportive and inclusive learning environment.

As students progress through the BGE and transition into the National Qualifications, Higher, and Advanced Higher levels, our Creative Arts Department continues to provide enriching experiences that cultivate a lifelong passion for the arts. Join us at Stranraer Academy’s Creative Arts Department, where imagination knows no limits, and the journey of artistic discovery is grounded in a strong foundation in the Broad General Education and National Qualifications.
