The RSC Associate Schools Programme

The RSC Associate Schools Programme

RSC Associate Schools Logo

Earlier this year, Notley High School & Braintree Sixth joined a ground-breaking new programme to work with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and other schools in the region to bring Shakespeare’s work to life. The Associate Schools programme is the RSC’s national partnership project run by regional theatre companies and schools, in partnership with the RSC.

The programme is built around local partnerships that consist of a Lead Associate School and theatre partner who recruit a number of Associate Schools. The initial two-year programme of work involves teachers, students and the wider community.

The fundamental ambition of the Associate Schools programme is to transform experiences of Shakespeare and live theatre for young people. Alongside continuing professional development and learning opportunities for teachers, the programme includes unique access to the work and resources of the RSC.

So far, teachers have already attended training days and are beginning to implement rehearsal room techniques in class. Some of our students have seen a live screening of Romeo and Juliet and taken part in RSC workshops and a practitioner and actor from the RSC has visited the school to work with Year 11 students.

In addition to this, our drama club took part in an RSC Schools Festival at The New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich. The festival enabled them to work with directors from the RSC before performing Romeo and Juliet on the main stage
