Halcyon Creative Arts was established in 2018 to provide high quality arts education to local children and young adults. We offer a range of disciplines to cultivate individual skills and confidence, while promoting wonder, empathy and community cohesion.
We believe in:
- developing our students vocationally, socially and morally to become co-operative, responsible and creative young people;
- fostering within our pupils a lifelong interest in the arts and a passion to fulfil their dreams;
- using our passion to positively contribute to our local society and wider community;
- equality for all, and offering a safe and welcoming space to celebrate diversity.
