Arts & Design

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” Edgar Degas

Simonds offers a range of arts units including Art, Design, Media, Drama and Music.

 At SCC we acknowledge that all students learn and grow based on a range of learning abilities and skills. We aim to enhance and foster this learning to further spark their creativity.

Students are encouraged to think critically and creatively, to further develop innovative problem solving skills, adaptable within the arts and interconnected with all forms of learning.

Students are encouraged to participate in arts competitions, arts club and activities throughout the year.


ACC Arts and Design Expo

We are involved in the ACC Arts and Design Expo, held every two years celebrating the skills and achievements across the ACC boys colleges.
