Collette Foundation Bursary
Working with the Collette Foundation we are pleased to offer a bursary programme that helps schools within Warwickshire and the surrounding counties to attend one of our education courses free of charge.

There is an enormous body of evidence that learning beyond the classroom, such as through our Heritage Education programs, has a positive impact on educational attainment. Unfortunately, not every school can afford to make the journey to Stratford-upon-Avon.
This is why we are so delighted that the Collette Foundation has supported a bursary that covers the fees of our educational courses, opening them up to schools and children that could not otherwise enjoy them – often the very children who would benefit most from such an experience.
'We were so excited to find Shakespeare’s Birthplace — a remarkable program. The children’s programming is outstanding and really touched on a major aspect of the Collette Foundation’s mission – to improve the lives of children. We were looking to partner with a nonprofit organization that allows children to really immerse themselves in a cultural activity that gives them an understanding of their traditions and heritage. Shakespeare’s Birthplace offers award-winning Heritage Education Programs that allow local primary school classes to visit the property and engage in Shakespeare’s times in a truly authentic setting.'
