A group of students from our school were delighted to be featured in a recent ITV News piece on the impact of the Shakespeare North Playhouse opening near to us.

Thanks to the hard work of our English Department, The Prescot School will have a unique partnership with the playhouse - which is very apt given that our school has been here since Shakespeare himself had links to the area through Knowsley’s Lord Derby.

Mrs Traverse, Head of English, said: “It feels like Shakespeare is reaching out to our pupils from the past.

“Our school has been here since 1544, and this partnership will help our students engage in literature in new and exciting ways.”

By working with the Shakespeare North Playhouse, students and their families will gain access to productions and events such as inspirational arts and cultural experiences, hip-hop workshops, drawing sessions, youth theatre activities and comedy projects.

Our students are very much looking forward to seeing Shakespeare’s texts come to life in this wonderful facility.

In addition to the 60-seater theatre, the playhouse also hosts an outdoor performance garden, exhibition gallery, learning centre, exhibition and events spaces.
