RSC Education aims to make Shakespeare's work vivid, accessible and enjoyable for children and young people. We believe this means they should experience Shakespeare by seeing it live; starting it earlier and doing it on their feet.

What we offer

From performances of works by Shakespeare and other writers in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Swan Theatre to a programme of Education work for young people from Key Stage 2 to Undergraduate level, the RSC has lots to offer for school groups in Stratford-upon-Avon

We offer full and half day practical workshops on any Shakespeare play or any play in the current repertoire, alongside a varied programme of events which can include Sixth Form Conferences, Primary Open Days and Writing and Adaptation workshops.

You can take a trip up the Theatre Tower, go on a tour or visit one of our exhibitions, which from 2016 will include a new exhibition in the Swan Theatre shining a spotlight on the RSC's creative processes over the last 100 years.

What makes us a great choice?

Because we are a theatre company we enable children, young people and their teachers to engage with Shakespeare's plays and the work of other writers as artists so that they have the richest possible engagement with our work.
