Welcome to Cambridge School Shakespeare Online

This website has been created by Cambridge University Press to help you deepen your understanding and enjoyment of Shakespeare's plays. It supports the highly successful Cambridge School Shakespeare plays, initially developed by Rex Gibson as part of his groundbreaking Shakespeare and Schools Project.

The site is free to register and features a wealth of student and teacher resources including:
  • multimedia activities, games, quizzes and tools
  • video and audio clips to inspire you
  • photo galleries of the plays in performance
  • notes and performance tips
  • blog posts from established Shakespeare experts.

What’s more, we’ve got fabulous support and resources from partners including the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and the Fitzwilliam Museum.

We’ll be adding more content on a regular basis and would welcome your feedback.
