English Literacy Workshops for schools

Engage students & bring your subject to life

English Drama & Performing Arts Myths & Legends

Providing students with a love of reading, together with excellent written and conversational skills is central to the aims of the English National Curriculum. To compliment your classroom English topics we can offer a range of themed workshops to help spark imaginations and develop written and spoken language. The workshops featured below can help schools from EYFS through to KS5.

English workshops focusing on writing skills can develop literacy through creative writing, conversational writing, job applications and CVs, as well as more specific examples of the usual SPAG topics; from nouns and pronouns to fronted adverbials and subordinate clauses.

English workshops focusing on conversation skills help equip students with strong oral communication and spoken language skills, building their vocabulary and enabling them to articulate arguments and express opinions.

Whether you are looking for drama and theatre, Shakespeare, poetry, theme-based writing, superheros, pirates, or a virtual reality trip that will take them far beyond the classroom. Take a look at the best English workshops available for school groups.
