Greenfield Students Share Day of Pride

posted 16 Jul 2021, 04:00 by Daniel Potts   [ updated 16 Jul 2021, 04:00 ]

Greenfield students united the whole school as they showed their support for the LGBT+ community both within the school and in the wider community.  The day raised valuable funds but most importantly ensured that students were given a voice to raise awareness.

The day involved the whole school with musical performances, stalls and fundraisers popping up around the school.  Supported by Assistant Headteacher Ms Davis, a student-led group organised and prepared for the occasion by finding fun ways to highlight issues, the student message was that ‘love is love, no matter what gender or sexuality’.

Last minute hitches meant a change to the entertainment and students were amazed to see the staff led group on the stage.  Students and staff raised the roof as the group performed popular favourites.

“It was a day to remember with fantastic support from all of the Greenfield Community, our students should be very proud of themselves” said Assistant Headteacher, Ms Davis.

Greenfield Community College is committed to equality and diversity and supports each and every student to realise their potential and enjoy an outstanding learning experience.  If you would like further information please visit www.greenfieldschool.net or contact the school by emailing contact@greenfieldschool.net or by calling 01325 300378.

Students from Greenfield Community College were able to celebrate in style as they attended the school prom this week.  The Class of 2021 have overcome so many challenges recently it was a pleasure to see the year group come together to enjoy the occasion.

The event was organised by Greenfield Community College and a Marquee was set up in the grounds, decorated beautifully by staff and students making it all the more special.  The students were able to reflect on the last five years of learning, chat about their future and share the occasion with staff.

Thanks to everyone who pulled together to make this happen including staff and the many businesses and organisations who made the night possible:  Thank you to Jenny Henvey from Pretty-Me-Do, Mac Make UK, Darlington Chair Covers, Woodham Golf Club, BW Photography, Jeff Dobson Marquee Hire, Newton Press and the Rotary Club for awards, Nikola Milburn.

It was a lovely evening with table service (made and served in-house) and team challenges which made for a fun event.  We wish the Class of 2021 all the best for the future. “Please keep in touch and always remember you are always part of our Greenfield Family, take care” said Mrs Butterworth, Year 11 House Leader.

Sporting Success Shared at Greenfield

Staff and students at Greenfield Community College are delighted to see the success of former students who are still very much a part of the Greenfield Community.  The school have recently been sharing the sporting achievements of footballer Luis Longstaff who has achieved amazing heights in his sport and is currently playing for Liverpool FC U23s!

Now a regular in the squad Luis, 20, has returned to Greenfield to talk to current students about his experiences and support their studies, he is an excellent role model who has worked hard and shown tremendous resilience to reach his goals.

Students were able to catch up with Luis in an online Microsoft Teams call and had the opportunity to apply their current learning of Technology in Sport and ask questions to gauge the real-life impact in football on players, officials and spectators. Also in attendance on the call was Jeff Evans, a recently retired first class cricket umpire who was able to relate to the significant impact of the use of technology from a cricket viewpoint.  

Students were able to understand more about both roles and how technology plays such an important part in sport, supporting their studies with life experience in an enjoyable and insightful forum.  Thank you to Luis and Jeff for giving their time and making such a valuable contribution. 

Greenfield Community College boast an award-winning PE Department who have successfully been awarded the Association for Physical Education (afPE) Quality Mark with Distinction for PE ad School Sport and are committed to supporting their students to reach their potential.  The school promotes an inclusive curriculum encouraging students to work together to realise an outstanding learning experience.  If you would like further information visit www.greenfieldschool.net or contact the school by emailing contact@greenfieldschool.net or by calling 01325 300378.

Greenfield Students Share Strong Voice

posted 30 Jun 2021, 03:50 by Daniel Potts   [ updated 30 Jun 2021, 03:50 ]


Student leaders at Greenfield Community College have been working together alongside professional artists and facilitators to help make a positive difference to learning within their school.

Their hard work and strong voice has culminated in an inspiring film using humour and positive messages to encourage ambition and aspiration.  This week the film has been  shared across the whole school as part of a programme of assemblies highlighting the importance of creative learning and school development.

Student Leaders are prompting big questions to help make a difference, working alongside film-maker Laura Degnan and our former Creative Director Katy Milne they have put together a framework for the future building upon their work on the current Student Learning Journal and collaboration with teaching staff.

The group have grown in confidence and were able to share their experience and knowledge with their peers and are looking forward to sharing their new student leaders’ manifesto using their new name of choice ‘Youth Evolution’.

When asked about their contribution and what they would like to achieve one student leader summed it up with clarity, “I want to see a positive embrace of our efforts within school in order to encourage students to reach their artistic and creative potential in learning”.

Youth Evolution are looking forward to noticing the impact and being part of the recruitment of new student leaders to carry on their campaign.  We look forward to seeing their hard work and aspirations create positive impact across the school.

Greenfield Arts and Greenfield Community College are collaborating to ensure students are able to work together to realise an outstanding learning experience.  If you would like further information visit www.greenfieldschool.net or contact the school by emailing contact@greenfieldschool.net or by calling 01325 300378.
