Shakespeare Enrichment

As a Stratford upon Avon School, we are really lucky to have such incredible historical heritage - Stratford-upon-Avon is the town where William Shakespeare was born and is buried and our localised curriculum, celebrates this.


During their time at Shottery St Andrew's CofE Primary School, we celebrate Shakespeare Week and every child studies a Shakespeare play as part of their English lessons. 


Throughout the week, the children visit a range of Shakespeare sites, including:

Shakespeare Birthplace Trust: William Shakespeare was born at the half-timbered Tudor family home in Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564. 


Hall's Croft: Hall's Croft is named after the physician Dr John Hall who married William Shakespeare's eldest daughter, Susanna.


Mary Arden's House: Mary Arden's House and the adjacent Palmer's Farm demonstrate life on a Tudor working farm.


Anne Hathaway's Cottage: Before her marriage to William Shakespeare, Anne Hathaway lived in Shottery, a small village that you'll find about a mile away from Stratford.


Shakespeare's School room and Guildhall: William Shakespeare spent his school years here, where he was inspired to become the world’s greatest playwright.


Holy Trinity Church: Holy Trinity Church is where Shakespeare was baptised and is buried.
