Beyond the Classroom


Students examine our collections


We promise lively and interactive sessions of the highest quality to students from keystage 2 to A Level. From literature to heritage, our sessions will be directly useful to your students curricular and examination requirements, and will also provide you with excellent opportunities for out of class assessment.

We look forward to working with you, inspiring your students, and enriching their experience of William Shakespeare in memorable and rewarding ways.

If you are interested in bringing your pupils to Stratford-upon-Avon to spend a few days with us we can arrange full courses lasting several days. Take a look at our Residential Courses page to find out more about the range of sessions on offer for longer courses. All our sessions can be tailored to the experience and needs of your pupils.
