Term 2, 2019

Here is our finalised timetable for Term 2, 2019. Since the term focuses heavily on Shakespearean drama, all new students to Shakespeare Academy must first complete the prerequisite Poetry for Beginners or the one-day Literary Techniques courses. We are running both courses during the April school holidays, and Poetry for Beginners during Term 2 as well.

The term runs from Monday 29 April to Sunday 7 July.

Students who attended the first Book Club session in July 2018 are invited to attend any 2019 session for free (excluding the price of the book if you wish to purchase your own copy). Students who wish to start in January will be charged a membership fee for the rest of 2019.
