Shakespeare Schools Festival is committed to providing access to all of its work regardless of technical or physical ability. This website aims to reflect this commitment.

We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Guidelines and Standards

This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.


Whilst Shakespeare Schools Festival strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

This includes:

  • Some elements require Javascript, often to load responsive elements for handheld and tablet devices.
  • There are a number of elements within the resources section that require Flash and have no fallback option.
  • We have chosen to not support very old browsers (from Internet Explorer 7 and older) as we feel it would degrade the experience for the majority of users on modern browsers.


We welcome questions or feedback on all areas of the website. If you’re having trouble using or understanding any part of this website please content

If you would like to feedback on any element of the design or build of the site please contact
