"The Creative School is like no other place. We are about making a difference in new, creative ways. ‘Creative’ can mean so many things to different areas. To us, it is about new ways of thinking, making and doing. You are at the centre of this creativity, learning, transforming and reimagining today’s complex problems in new, unexplored ways."

— Charles Falzon, Dean
