Thank you for your interest in the Learning and Performance Network.
Since the programme started seven years ago, over 400 schools and 75,000 children have been engaged with us to develop the teaching, learning and performance of Shakespeare in their schools. The LPN has proved to be a highly successful programme and the RSC is committed to its long term future.

Last year we made some changes to the existing LPN programme and as a result we are targeting applications rather than running an open recruitment.
At the heart of the revised programme is a partnership with regional theatre companies who will work alongside the RSC and schools in their area. In 2012 these theatres were:
Hall for Cornwall
Hull Truck Theatre
Theatre Royal Newcastle
The Nuffield Theatre, Southampton
York Theatre Royal
In 2013 we are working with the following theatre companies and their local community of schools:
The Marlowe Theatre
The Grand Theatre Blackpool
The New Vic
If you are interested in reading more about the findings from teachers who have been involved in the LPN please vist our Case study and Research pages.
If you would like to experience the way we work, book onto one of our Continuing Professional Development courses in Stratford-upon-Avon or London. We also offer a wide range of workshops and events for students to enhance their confidence with Shakespeare's text.
