Our History

Young Shakespeares® began as a stand-alone Harry Potter Workshop in the Spring of 2017 that transformed (or rather transmogrified!) into something MORE. We combined our love of stories and word games to bridge the space between the imagination and the blank white page. We teach from KS1 to university level. We are developing an exciting partnership with Manchester City Council to inspire more children to read and to write.

our students

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!

Mission

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.

A Word

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

English is an amazing language. It has the largest vocabulary in the world and that’s just the start. Plus news from us about what we’re up to.

How to Teach English Grammar to Children

Grammar is a topic which fills many children - and adults - with a growing sense of panic. However, it doesn't have to be daunting. We love grammar and we want children to love grammar too. It doesn't stop there though. At Young Shakespeares we believe a solid command...

Yes, english can be fun!

Dear Student,

We work with students who hate writing. We work with some who’ve never written a story. We also work with students who write so well they’ve been published in collections of good writing. So, can anyone become a writer? The answer is that it depends. On you. We have a few tricks under our sleeves to get you going. We have seen children transformed when they understand the nuts and bolts of the English language. Some just need a well-told story to stir their imagination. Everyone is different. Yet, we’re all the same.

english isn't so bad

Dear Parent,

You may have tried every course  under the sun or you’re intrigued by what Young Shakespeares has to offer. We are largely focused on the English language. Mastery of English improves the attainment in all other subjects. What could be better than your child both enjoying themselves at something and excelling in it?

"Can you get them writing?"

Dear Teacher,

We greatly respect what you do day in day out without reward or acknowledgment. We want to give a boost to children and offer insights on the art and craft of writing. Students will still need to sit exams and to do their homework. We want to inspire them so they can write anything, fiction or non-fiction, poetry or prose and add to the foundation you have given to students.

Our History

It all started when we did a one-off Harry Potter Workshop in the Spring of 2017. The workshop was so well received, well, we had to do more…

We combined our love of stories and word games to bridge the space between the imagination and the blank white page.

Everyone is welcome at Young Shakespeares! For instance, we work with dyslexic students and with those for whom English is not their first language. However, we also guide prolific writers and help them to become better ones.
