Community and Performing Arts
At Greenwood Academy our award winning performing arts provision provides students with an opportunity to engage in and excel in a range of art forms. Our wide and varied program opens doors for pupils to perform as individuals and in groups, often alongside members of the wider community through events like Castle Vale’s Got Talent. Our annual school production attracts a huge percentage of our students and over recent years we have won the Columba Trophy for Theatrical Productions. The impact the arts has on individuals not only develops their skills in performance but also helps to build confidence and self-esteem which impacts positively in other areas of school.
We also value the community we serve and so opportunities for community engagement do not stop with our Performing Arts program. We hold two huge community events annually, Santa on the Vale at Christmas and our Summer Fun Day, both of which are really well attended. Added to this we have a bustling Community Hub making good use of our facilities outside of schools hours for the benefit of the local community.
In 2017 we marked our 50th Anniversary with a series of events including a documentary and a huge celebration. Click the logo for the Facebook community and have a look at the documentary on YouTube.
