Wilstead Primary School Learning for Life


Proud to be a Lead Associate School

The RSC Associate Schools programme is open to primary, secondary and special state-maintained schools in England. It is built around the principle of schools working in local partnerships to develop communities of practice. Each local partnership consists of a Lead Associate School, who in turn recruits up to ten Associate Schools. In some cases, these local partnerships include a regional theatre as well as the Royal Shakespeare Company. 


Lead Associate Schools often have prior experience of working with the RSC before taking on this role. They take on a leadership role because they have already seen and experienced the impact of Shakespeare's work and RSC approaches on students and teachers in their school. Our Associate Schools are able to confidently speak about the impact the work has had on students, teachers and the wider school community. 


Here at Wilstead, we are passionate about the power of using Shakespeare in the classroom and we   are immensely proud of our status as a Lead Associate School with the RSC.  We have developed our practice, both within our own school and through developing a cluster of local Associate Schools, providing support and inspiring teaching and learning through Shakespeare.  We feel that our use of Shakespeare in the classroom has been a key element of our children’s success in and enjoyment of their learning at our school, and look forward to continuing our journey with the RSC.
