Welcome to a Real Art School

City & Guilds of London Art School has been operating as an independent organisation with charitable status since 1971. As a result of new governance arrangements implemented in April 2012 the operations relating to the School’s educational activities were separated from those of managing its properties. The latter is the responsibility of the City & Guilds of London Property Trust which also spearheads the Development Project. The two charities are independent of each other although their core aims and objectives are closely aligned.

The Art School is currently seeking to appoint both a new Chair and new Trustees.
