The BRIT School works with community partners to reach out and engage with people in Croydon and surrounding boroughs. Every year the students work with different groups aiming to show ho the role of the arts can make life better.
“Working with the local community has always been important to the BRIT school. We've had 25 years of running workshops and performances for all ages and community groups. From homes for the elderly to local nursery schools and from pupil referral units to Althzeimers centres the school really believes in creating relationships and sharing the skills and talents of our students with others. A creative and sharing community is a happy community. That's what the BRIT school wants to be part of and contribute to what's good about Croydon.
A BRIT student is a good citizen, who has enthusiasm, commitment and responsibility and can make a huge impact on society through their work.”
In 1993, The BRIT School wrote a Community Arts Programme BTEC unit as part of the curriculum, which allowed every student to work on a community project as part of their training during their tenure at the School. The aim was for students to be a ‘force for good’ and early focus was placed on working with victims and perpetrators of crime, school phobic teenagers and young people with disabilities, aiming to show how the role of art can make life better.
For 6 weeks each year The BRIT School undertakes several community outreach projects, working with partner organisations, which benefit yearly from The BRIT School’s workshops. The BRIT School also works with local schools, both primary and secondary, providing both performances and collaborative training opportunities.
