Starting to think about Literature GCSEs? Feel like you want to explore new and exciting texts? Or perhaps you are a keen theatre-goer and want to be exposed to the best playwright of all time? Then come along to our Shakespeare club for 12-16 year olds.

In these sessions, we will be exploring some of Shakespeare’s most famous characters, looking at how context has influenced his writing and analysing structure and form as well as language. You will learn how Shakespeare is a master at crafting language by using prose, poetry and iambic pentameter whilst also understanding how Aristotle and the ancient Greeks impacted his writing.

We will study a play for 10-12 weeks and the work will be creative, at times artistic, but also include essay writing skills so that students feel confident in writing about Shakespeare.

There will also be a chance for them to embody their favourite character and use their dramatic skills to present some of Shakespeare’s famous monologues to the group if they want to!

This course will have an optional 2 night (additional cost) field trip organised in the summer for children to meet (with a parent) in Stratford-upon-Avon and go to see a play, visit the Royal Shakespeare Company for a workshop as well as visit some important historical places as they share their love of all things Shakespeare for a social weekend!
