Education Oscars Celebrate Community Initiatives in North Shropshire

A range of community Creative Arts projects which have seen school children from across North Shropshire and the Welsh borders have opportunities to experience the joys of Art, Music and Drama were celebrated at a glittering ceremony in London.

The TES awards are the education Oscars and the opportunity to showcase the arts provision provided by Moreton Hall near Oswestry, as part of their involvement with the soon-to-be completed, Holroyd Community Theatre, was a great tribute to all the young people who have engaged with the varied projects.

The shortlist nomination was for ‘whole school community initiative’ and recognised Moreton Hall’s work with local primary and secondary schools around the area. It was also a tribute to the work of North Shropshire Music and the Face2Face Performance Academy, both of whom will be making full use of the fabulous facilities of the Holroyd.

Although the school didn’t win on the night, according to Vice-Principal Carolyn Tilley, “To be shortlisted with some of the country’s leading schools, many of them in the South of England, was a real testament to the long-established links between Moreton Hall and its local community. The Holroyd Community Theatre near Oswestry will play a vital part in continuing to foster these exciting Creative Arts opportunities for our young people.”
