Oxford School Shakespeare: supporting all students all around the world

Oxford School Shakespeare

Bringing Shakespeare to all your students

Teachers often find that Shakespeare's use of language is the largest barrier to student understanding and engagement, and this is where Oxford School Shakespeare excels. Notes and explanations are next to the relevant line, immediately aiding understanding, while photographs and illustrations encourage students to visualise the action.  

  • Clear notes and commentaries give detailed explanations of difficult words and passages
  • Photographs from theatre productions offer alternative interpretations and staging ideas
  • Two column format makes reference-checking and explanations more immediate
