Schools' Pack

Students during a Shakespeare workshop
© Rob Freeman

Using Shakespeare’s plays, many of which feature on the national curriculum, this cross-curricular pack brings Shakespeare’s plays to life and celebrates Shakespeare as a writer who still speaks for all people and nations. 


Exploring five distinct themes - leadership and power, family and relationships, identity and equality, justice and rules, and fate and destiny - the schools’ pack helps students think critically and creatively about being a twenty-first century citizen.


We hope you and your pupils will enjoy exploring the ones we have developed in this pack, which have now been translated to make it accessible to students on a global level. More translated packs are to be added throughout the year.
