St Alban’s Year 8 visit Royal Shakespeare Company
On Friday 7 February the whole of Year 8 from St Alban’s Academy in Birmingham attended a performance of The Taming of the Shrew, as St Alban’s looks to provide access to a breadth of material from across the Shakespearean canon. Fiona Clayton of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) described St Alban’s students as “engaged and well behaved!”, and Jayne Welsh, one of the lead teachers on the project, commented that the trip had been “hard work, but well worth it, to see the smiles on the students’ faces”.
St. Alban’s Academy is the lead school in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre’s learning and performance network, and works closely with the theatre to widen access to - and participation in – Shakespeare’s works. Previous events have included the company performing King Lear in the academy for the staff, students and local community, live feeds of David Tennant’s Richard II, and a series of teacher training opportunities in active approaches to Shakespearean texts. Other ARK academies in Birmingham, including ARK Kings and ARK Tindal are also part of the network and benefit from access to the theatre’s expertise.
