I have just attended F1 and F2 Sports Day. I cannot praise the teachers, pupils or the parents enough! Everyone enjoyed themselves and the atmosphere was amazing. Teachers allowed toddlers (younger siblings) to participate too. Even the parents were eager to have a go.

A massive pat on the back to everyone!

Natasha Evans (F1 Parent)



I just wanted to drop you a line to congratulate you and your students and your staff on what was a terrific performance of Romeo and Juliet at the Artrix Theatre last week. All of our staff were impressed with the quality of the performances and the dedication and passion of your young group, and I have to say it was one of the most fun and enjoyable pieces I've seen so far; your actors displayed a terrific understanding and ensemble focus that really shone, and the concept and shape of the piece overall was very impressive. You should all be very proud.


On behalf of the whole SSF Team I would like to offer you our thanks for being a part of Shakespeare Schools Festival 2013.
I’m sure you are rightly proud of your students but please also take a moment to recognise your own achievements.  Without talented and dedicated Teacher-Directors like you, Shakespeare Schools Festival wouldn’t be possible.   From registering in the first place, securing the budget, recruiting your cast, running rehearsals and getting your production to the stage, you make it all happen with determination, imagination and courage.
As I said, your cast put on a brilliant performance and I hope they will never forget how it felt to stand on that stage and hear the applause of the audience. I hope they left the theatre standing a little taller, full of pride in their achievements and more confident to tackle their next challenge.


Please let us know if the Festival has had an impact on you and your students.


Here at HQ we love hearing stories from the SSF community and are always on the lookout for case studies.  You can also blog, tweet, Instagram, post photographs and videos on our website – we'd love to hear from you.
In 2014, 35,000 young people from 1,500 schools will take part in the Festival in more theatres across the UK.  We would love you to take another group of your students through the SSF process next year and be a part of our celebrations of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth.  It is an important year and will be a very special Festival.
Registration opened in September and lots of new schools are already signing up, we'd love to have you back!

With thanks and very best wishes
Davey Kelleher ~ Festival Coordinator
