The Arts at Oak Green & ArtsMark



“Creativity takes courage.”


Oak Green School are officially an Artsmark school!


 For the last two years, Oak Green have been developing a multitude of areas around the school to demonstrate embedded and exhilarating arts within our curriculum. Providing a wide range of extracurricular arts activities, beginning working relationships with artists and local arts organisations, outreach collaboration with our local Artsmark schools and evaluating the impact and achievements of the arts linking to the whole community. Through our newly-achieved innovative approach and ultimate belief in the vast potential for every child, we will be allowing our children’s curiosity and imagination to soar.
