Educational trust
The Roche Court Educational Trust works with teachers, children, young people, and specialist groups to develop confidence and oracy skills by looking, thinking and speaking about art. We offer interactive tours of the Sculpture Park and current exhibitions for schools, colleges, universities, and other groups. Designed to meet the specific needs and interests of individual groups, visits are appropriate for all ages and levels of knowledge. Tours are led by our enthusiastic and expert educators who have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of modern and contemporary art. Interpretation of the sculptures can be adapted for SEN visitors, for example through multi-sensory materials and Makaton.

For those schools who are unable to visit Roche Court in person, we can deliver ‘virtual visits’, which include a live introduction via video conferencing, lesson plan, film clips and worksheets.

During the school holidays, we hold our popular family workshops which are most suitable for children aged 5-12. Taking the current exhibitions or recently arrived sculpture as inspiration, we create our own artwork by drawing and sculpting.

Our long-term projects include the Multi-Sensory Art Project which provides creative, sensory experiences for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities. This project has now been running for ten years. We have also created a series of podcasts titled ‘Listen in at Roche Court’ which feature conversation between artists exhibiting at Roche Court, creative industry specialists, students, and lifelong learners. We hope to begin recording a second series soon.
