Study Days can be tailored to a play or plays of your choice, and students will engage critically with the text, through practical work and debate. Our Study Days are held in the Clore Learning Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon and led by one of our Associate Learning Practitioners. 

For Key Stage 3, students will look at the narrative of the play, exploring themes, character journeys and unlocking language in key scenes.

For Key Stage 4, we will look at character, language, structure and form and ask students to make an informed personal response from the language. These sessions are suitable at any stage of a student's study, and as revision.

For Key Stage 5, students will look at deeper textual analysis and how meaning is made in performance. They will gain an in-depth knowledge of form, and consider the relationship between text and the context in which Shakespeare was writing.
