Royal Shakespeare Company

RSC and HFC Associate Schools Programme

The Associate Schools Programme is the RSC's new partnership work with regional theatres and schools across England.
The programme aims to bring about a significant change in the way young people experience, engage with, and take ownership of the work of Shakespeare. Teachers will learn to explore Shakespeare with their students in the way actors do in a rehearsal room, using dynamic, creative and active approaches.

'This is the missing bit in education…it has rejuvenated my teaching practice, the best thing we’ve ever done.'  - Cornwall teacher
The programme is open to Secondary, Primary and Special state schools in England. We are pleased to announce that Treviglas College in Newquay and Launceston College are our lead associate schools. We look forward to welcoming them and also working alongside their enhanced networks of 23 local schools.
