Art & Design at Rochester Independent
Art & Design | Ages 13 – 17
Our Art and Design Course is tailored specifically for artistic students to find their flair. The course gives students the opportunity to explore a range of media, whilst developing their English language skills with new friends from all around the world.
Students explore a range of creative projects including art, film, fashion and environmentalism in an environment where creativity is encouraged and nurtured.
Discover a unique independent school that celebrates individuality and inspires artistic expression. Experience the local history of Charles Dickens whilst living and studying a short train ride from London. See what it is about Rochester that makes it a perfect place to study art this summer.
In addition to art and design sessions, our programmes also include a range of fun social activities that our art and design students play a key role in developing and leading, putting all their creative skills into practice in a real performative situation.

Much of the course is project based and student centred, and if students are finding instructions and information challenging to follow then our tutors have experience teaching mixed-ability classes, and can adapt and simplify how they present information.
Participants would benefit from having a level of B1 and above to participate effectively in this course. Before the summer, your Admissions Manager will send your child(ren) an online placement test to complete. This will help us to ensure that this course is suitable for your child to participate in and benefit from.
At the end of the programme, we hold a graduation ceremony where each student receives a certificate of completion.
Students are given SBC handouts when needed, all of which were produced by our in-house academic team.
Students should bring their own stationary, and are provided with notebooks and folders. All art and design materials are provided.
Required reading is not necessary before the start of the course, however it would always help students to keep practising their English if they feel they need to.
I don’t believe in life-changing experiences, but this summer school is probably as close as it gets to that. Dima came back a more confident and sociable kid with even more drive to learn English than he was before Rochester. He also can’t stop talking about all the friends he made and the fun he had.
