Education

Our aim is to make Shakespeare vivid, accessible and enjoyable for young people aged 5-25 and their teachers

We want as many young people as possible to come to our performances, to explore plays using approaches from our rehearsal rooms and to make and develop their own interpretations of Shakespeare’s work.

There are so many ways for teachers, schools and young people to work with us:

Last year our work reached over 500,000 young people across the UK - explore our web pages to find out how to get your school on the RSC Education Map.
