We aim to support teachers to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to get pupils on their feet, working together to connect with Shakespeare.
Taking our inspiration from the RSC 'rehearsal room' we offer tried and tested strategies that engage pupils from ages four to 19. Our research shows that through these approaches young people enjoy Shakespeare, build positive relationships and achieve more.
