International School of Creative Arts
Established in 2009 in association with University of the Arts London (UAL), International School of Creative Arts (ISCA) is now a fully independent centre for pre-university study in art and design, with over 97% of its students progressing to courses at UAL and other leading art and design institutions around the world. ISCA is a unique creative arts school which offers an A-Level and Portfolio programme with access to Central Saint Martins’ Foundation Plus, and academic progression provided through a guaranteed interview for a full-time course at CSM on successful completion of studies.
Only 30 minutes from central London, ISCA offers superb facilities over 20-acres of idyllic English countryside in Buckinghamshire. The school is a vibrant learning and living environment and the on-campus art facilities are comprised of studios dedicated to fine art, textiles and photography, a large dark room, 3-D/Ceramics studio complete with kiln, and a graphic design room fully equipped with Apple Mac computers.
The School attracts a diverse and independent-minded student body aged 16+ from around the world who actively contribute to the inclusive atmosphere that prevails within the community. Boarders are provided with their own study-bedrooms with en-suite facilities and a supportive environment which aims to prepare them for independent living. Students are also encouraged to make use of the indoor swimming pool, new sports hall, tennis courts, football pitches and large common/games room located on campus.
ISCA’s close proximity to London provides students with an artistic, cultural and social enrichment programme that encourages regular visits to famous museums, art galleries and design studios. Strong links with the creative industries means ISCA students benefit from regular guest talks and workshops led by industry professionals and opinion formers including ISCA’s Honorary President, Professor Jimmy Choo OBE.
The International School of Creative Arts offers talented students, through its close link with University of the Arts London, the artistic foundation to become the future stars of the creative industry.
