We run a series of residences in local schools, supporting curriculum learning and giving pupils an opportunity to explore Shakespeare and express themselves outside of lessons.


Speak The Speech provides free workshops at Guildford Grove Primary School and Weyfield Primary Academy. We work with all children in years 4-6, providing a six-week course for each class. Pupils are taken through the plot and context of a Shakespeare play, recreating scenes and blending the children’s own words with quotes from Shakespeare’s original text.

“We absolutely love working with the GSC and, once again, the quality of the performances and workshops is unparalleled. It’s all the children can talk about.” Guildford Grove Primary School.

Speak The Speech is made possible by The Wrentham Trust.


A Time For All Things is our on-going residency at King’s College Guildford. The programme is created in close collaboration with members of the teaching staff, to ensure each class studies Shakespeare in a practical and effective way, as they the build-up to their GCSEs

"The whole experience was full of love, passion and energy and was a great reminder of why live theatre is so, so important!" Head of English, King's College

A Time For All Things is made possible by The Wrentham Trust.
