School Association Partnership

We are really proud to be chosen to participate in the Associate Schools Programme 2021-2024 in partnership with The Marlowe Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). We have signed up to a further 5 years in order to ensure this programme continues to enrich our curriculum offer and out of school activities. The programme is targeted towards schools who want to develop and improve access to Shakespeare, and to deliver the best teaching in the classroom through active drama techniques.

Through the Associate Schools Programme we have received fantastic development training for teachers and rich cultural and learning experiences for our children. We are now regarded as a strong partnership school and were the only school chosen to perform at the Marlowe Theatre’s Annual Supporters  Dinner 2019. 


All year groups take part in Shakespeare workshops led by our Creative Arts Leader. These workshops develops our children’s speaking and listening skills, curiosity of language, use of ambitious words and builds confidence. Children learn to  read scripts and use this rich language in their writing.
