Plan an Education Visit
A visit to Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall offers fun, informal and authentic learning experiences for any education group
You are invited to step into Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall and immerse yourself in fifteenth and sixteenth century Stratford, sit in the very room that William Shakespeare sat as a pupil in the 1570s, visit the Council Chamber where his father served as Bailiff (Mayor) and experience the space where he first witnessed performances by the country’s greatest actors of the day. You are able to explore the building’s role as a medieval provincial Guildhall that sat at the heart of Stratford’s civic governance and learn about its almost 600 years of educational and commercial life. Standing where Shakespeare’s father served his year as Bailiff (Mayor), you will hear the sounds of the Court of Record, over which John Shakespeare presided when Bailiff. The highlight of your visit will be with Master Thomas Jenkins brushing up your Latin in a Tudor-style lesson.
Our Teachers’ Toolkit and Timeline will be available soon. Please watch this space!
