Royal Shakespeare CompanyThe Trust is proud to work in partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company as a Lead Associate Trust. All eleven of our schools learn about Shakespeare texts culminating in an annual performance of the work at the Royal and Derngate Theatre in Northampton, providing the opportunity for children to showcase both their performane abilities as well as their understanding of the chosen play.  In past years, children have worked on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest and Hamlet and this year, the text is Romeo and Juliet.  The Trust's passion for this work has continued to grow year on year and is making an impact on children's attainment and their wider aspirations.  Our Trust values and pedagogy are very much aligned with those of the Royal Shakespeare Company as we work to develop children, both academically and holistically.
