Newton Aycliffe school receives art award
A SCHOOL has received a national award for its commitment to the arts.
Greenfield Community College in Newton Aycliffe was awarded the Arts Mark Gold by Trinity College London in recognition of the high quality art and cultural opportunities it offers pupils.
It is the fourth time the school has received the award, which is part of an Art Council programme that encourages schools to celebrate, strengthen and evaluate their cultural provision.
During a recent visit to the school, the award assessor made many positive comments and praised staff and pupils for their work to use and promote the arts across the curriculum.
Katy Milne, director of arts and creativity at Greenfield, said: “It is great to be acknowledged for all of the creative and artistic programmes we offer here at Greenfield, both in school and in the arts centre, especially the comments from the assessor praising how the arts is embedded in the ethos of the school and community in the area.
“We look forward to continuing this excellence.”
