Sixth Form Conferences

Engage with other students at one of our conferences throughout the academic year

Led by our own Shakespeare experts and drama practitioners, our sixth-form conferences combine lively discussions and performances with close-readings of Shakespeare's texts. Students will leave with a deeper understanding of how Shakespeare's plays work both on the page and on the stage, ready for their exams. 

These conferences comprise of plenary and play-specific break-off sessions, along with performance demonstrations and a closing question and answer session. 

"Perfectly pitched to our students and will absolutely support them in their examination."

— Macmillan Academy, Middlesbrough

"A fantastic and stimulating day of engaging talks which reinforced but also extended students thinking and learning of “Othello”. The girl’s enjoyment was palpable and there is so much we can take back to school to discuss!"

— King Edward Camp Hill Girls School

"The speakers are really knowledgeable and encouraging"

— Student Comment

"Lecture was excellent. Very useful context and critical readings of the play that will be of real benefit for exam. Great that there was so much questioning of the pupils."
