How the Festival helped Tyler rejoin mainstream education
We are proud to be working with fantastic partners

Working with Arts Award, SSF has created a clear step-by-step guide to achieving Arts Award through participation in the Festival. Our partnership also means that any of our Teacher Directors can receive discounted Arts Award accreditation and that our performers can achieve their Arts Award at reduced rates by using our unique discount code.
Social Business Trust
SBT’s mission is to support high growth potential social enterprises to scale-up their impact. They do that by investing cash grants and professional support from their eight partner organisations in a carefully selected portfolio of social enterprises.
Since 2010 they have positively impacted the lives of one million people, providing £12.3 million worth of cash and in-kind assistance, including 25,000 hours of high-quality business support.
SSF is extremely proud to have had invaluable support from SBT since 2013. This has been crucial to our growth and development over the last five years. From cash grants to build our communications capacity, to strategic input on our business model, through to secondees from corporate partners, to training for our team, SBT has been there every step of the way helping us to fulfil our mission and transform more young lives.
Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru
SSF is extremely proud of our history with Wales, particularly since the Festival began there 16 years ago. Our partnership with Theatr Genedlaethol allows us to offer limited edition bi-lingual scripts that contain selected scenes from our 30-minute Macbeth scripts in both English and Welsh. Our schools can also enjoy the work of Theatr Genedlaethol at specially discounted rates.
Every Festival performance is special. The culmination of months of preparation is celebrated in a thrilling evening of performance in front of friends, family and local communities. Splaat ensure that every moment is captured by professional photographers who are on hand to take and sell high-quality photos that ensure the night will never be forgotten and also give audiences and performers the chance to buy t-shirts, pens and other souvenirs of these extraordinary evenings.
SSF’s partnership with Conway Hall allows us to offer workshops for the teachers we work with and our young performers in a fantastic setting. With a professional theatre space and two workshop rooms, their facilities ensure that all needs are met and their location in Central London ensures easy access for teachers in London and the surrounding areas.
Representing the third area of the UK, Knowsley, that has a strong historical connection with the Bard, Shakespeare North has partnered with SSF to develop our relationship with schools in and around the area. Our workshops for teachers and our young performers and the Festival performances themselves will benefit from this partnership.
St Catharine’s College Cambridge
SSF and St Catharine’s share a vision and commitment to bring the benefits of the study of Shakespeare to young people, focusing particularly on those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. To fulfil this mission, we are working together to offer CPD opportunities for our network of teachers in Cambridge and the surrounding area, focusing particularly on those who serve deprived communities. Through an additional CPD day in college, teachers will explore Shakespeare’s texts with university lecturers and SSF practitioners through a powerful mixture of discussion, drama and cross-curricular planning.
Our partnership will also benefit the young people we work with through the provision of additional workshops and opportunities to visit and take part in courses at St Catharine’s College.
We look forward to offering Residential courses to both our network of teachers and young people so that they can enjoy an overnight stay on campus and two days of workshops with St Catharine’s and SSF’s highly skilled representatives.
