Mr Morgan is the Subject Leader for Art & Design. He has designed and run both the A-Level and GCSE courses since his arrival.
Mr Morgan came to CTC London from Hackney College London where he was a Tutor of Art, and previous to that post he taught at the London College of Communication. As well as working at CTC London, Mr Morgan is also an A-level examiner for AQA and Edexcel exam boards.
Mr Morgan’s specialism is Fine Art, having completed a BA from Norwich School of Art and an MA from The Royal College of Art, both in Fine Art. He continued at the Royal College of Art for a further year as he was awarded their Printmaking Fellowship, during which he helped establish the use of Digital media and printing within the college. He then went on to study his PGCE from the London Institute of Education and has been teaching ever since.
Alongside running the Art and Design department, Mr Morgan also runs a weekly photography club introducing students to both technical aspects, important historical influences and organises regular weekend visits to a selection of London galleries and museums.
Outside of his teaching, Mr Morgan has continued with his own practice and has a keen interest in working in a wide range of media including painting, digital media, photography and screen-printing. He has extensively exhibited in the UK and abroad and his work is held in many collections including the government art collection and can be found in many British embassies around the world.

“The benefit of small classes cannot be overstated, it allows students to have lots of contact time with their tutors, especially in my subject where every student is following their own personal pathway, allowing them to be thoroughly stretched and achieve their full potential.”
