Welcome toYoung Shakepeares
We teach children and young people
English and Creative Writing!
Our first Young Shakespeares® session was a Harry Potter Workshop in the Spring of 2017. It led to a demand for innovative and fun workshops. We combine our love of stories and word games to bridge the space between the imagination and the blank white page.
Since our start, we have expanded the range of our teaching. We cover the full range of teaching English from Key Stage 1 to university level.
We are developing an exciting partnership with Manchester City Council to inspire more children to read and to write.
We work with all kinds of children. We work with dyslexic children. We work with children for whom English is not their first language. However, we also guide prolific young bards who, until they arrived at Young Shakespeares®, had never felt challenged. We are able to do this, because we make learning English and Creative Writing fun!
Our Mission & Vision
We want to nurture our students to become great writers. We do this by kindling their desire to explore the world of words in a way that will get them reading, writing and using their imagination. We deliver workshops for groups as well as tailored 1-to-1 tuition.
From our Founder
“As an author and a father, I think it is vital to nurture children in the art and craft of creative writing from the moment that they are born. The love for stories and story-telling is innate and Young Shakespeares strives to use that to inspire children to discover the world of literature.”
– Zahid Hussain
