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.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect English workshop to visit your school.

Chocolate Collective



Chocolate Collective facilitate chocolate workshops that are a fantastic introduction into the world of chocolate. Our tailored, interactive workshops inspire pupils and teach them new skills either as an after-school activity or as part of a Nation

Our School Workshops are the ideal complement to classroom teaching and are a real favourite amongst teachers (and kids funnily enough). We work closely with teachers to ensure their teaching is supported and can do a short question and answer session on the topics of your choice too. Each session is run by one of our experienced and passionate chocolatiers, so that much of the pressure is taken off teachers’ shoulders. Our workshops have relevance to important aspects of the National Curriculum at both Primary and Secondary School level bringing subjects such as English Literature, History, Geography and Business Studies to life. As with all successful lessons, we make our sessions interactive, hands-on and fun. And we’re yet to meet a pupil who isn’t overjoyed at the thought...
