Shakespeare Week 2018!   12th-16th March

This week, we will be welcoming William Shakespeare back to St. John's as part of our annual Shakespeare Week celebrations. The children will have the opportunity to participate in a range of drama, dance, music and art workshops, as we explore the Bard's most famous plays and celebrate his work and life.

We are thrilled to be joining hundreds of schools across the country in this wonderful celebration and look forward to sharing these enriching arts opportunities with the children.
