Established in 1868 Croydon School of Art, which is part of Croydon College, was one of the top art schools in the country.
Other famous alumni include musician and designer Malcolm McLaren and artist and anarchist Jamie Reid, best known for his work on the Sex Pistols album.
Many of the original traditional screen printing, etching, relief printing and letterpress equipment have been retained for use in the school but students will also be able to work with the latest computers and digital facilities.
