Greenfields Graduate Shannon Tarbet, Actress

02 Feb 2012

“From attending Greenfields School at such a young age I have been given a strong sense of my own integrity and belief in my competence going into any career field. If it hadn’t been for growing up in such a positive and supportive environment I don’t think I would have thought of myself being in the position I’m in today. Greenfields is a great exemplification of how important support is and I cannot thank the staff and my fellow pupils enough! At Greenfields I learned to love studying and that was because of the study tech used in this school helping me to fully grasp each subject. When you really apply something as simple as “clearing your misunderstood words” – no subject appears as a challenge anymore. Studying becomes a game! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I spent at Greenfields, and am very grateful for the tech this school has provided me with to flourish and prosper in life!”

Shannon came to public attention in 2010 with her critically acclaimed professional stage debut as Delilah Evans in Spur of the Moment at the Royal Court Theatre in London where she was short listed for the Evening Standard Award for Best Newcomer. In 2011 she performed in Mogadishu at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester and the Lyric Theatre, London as well as in episodes of the BBC’s courtroom drama Silk, Granada TV’s crime series Lewis, ITV’s medical drama Monroe and the BBC’s Inspector George Gently.
