Sharing great stories and enriching lives is our passion and we are committed to ensuring we continue to do this for all our classes as much as possible during these unprecedented times. Classes have now been re-configured for online delivery, and we will give you full details as to how this works when you register. Contact the Education Team if you have any questions.
We will continue to assess the situation as it progresses and will start classes in their usual venues, as soon as it’s safe to do so. Thank you for your co-operation, support and understanding. (updated 20 April 2020)
GSC SPRITES is our series of after-school Shakespeare Drama Clubs in Primary Schools.
GSC Sprites will teach your child to tell stories in a fun and interactive way, to create characters, to use their imaginations and to work and play as a team. Drama helps build confidence and teaches better communication skills. We will explore a Shakespeare play every term, putting the story and its characters into the children's own words.
It has been great to see the children of QE developing through their roles within the GSC Sprites Drama Club. It has helped boost their confidence, develop their creativity and allowed them to express themselves.
Children who in school are often shy and quiet, have found a means to truly express themselves and often “come out of their shells”, as well as working on the skills of cooperation and negotiation as a member of a team.
