Shakespeare Week
15 March - 21 March

To get you ready for Shakespeare Week, we've created a screening guide with ideas and advice as to how to throw your own unique Shakespeare-themed film screening, and get young people excited about watching and studying Shakespeare. We have advice about creating a jungle in the classroom before watching The Lion King, or how learning different film shots can be turned into a fun game of Bingo during a Gnomeo and Juliet screening.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.

What our educators say

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
