About MTCT

Established in 2013, MTCT is a cluster of eleven schools and two community groups in
Mitcham Town. Our mission is to support all young people and families we work with in
Mitcham Town to reach their full potential. We aim to create ongoing learning opportunities
for the whole community through collaboration, creativity and innovation.

About Green Arts Centre

Launched in 2021, Green Arts Centre offers quality arts activity, “on your doorstep”.
Our mission is to create new opportunities for all young people in Mitcham to enjoy and
participate in high quality arts work. Our theatre and dance programmes are FREE and open
to every young person aged 8-12 years. We aim to expand the programme upwards to age
16 within the next two years.

“Creativity is at the heart of our school’s approach, and we are very excited about the fantastic new opportunities Green Arts Centre will give young people from our school and across Mitcham to discover and explore the arts.”
