Whether you're a teacher looking for inspiration or a student wanting to get creative, we've got lots of resources and ideas for independent learning at home.

As a result of the changing circumstances in schools, many young people are now learning at home or working in a blended way, using digital platforms to explore independently as well as in the classroom. 

Take a look at our resources for new ideas for learning about Shakespeare and his plays, as well as staying creative at home.
