Looking, thinking, speaking
The Roche Court Educational Trust (RCET) works with teachers, young people and specialist groups to develop confidence and skills by looking, thinking and speaking about art. Our aim is to provide a greater understanding and enjoyment of the culture of our age. We encourage everyone to speak amongst themselves and in public about the visual world, raising their aspirations and increasing their knowledge.
The charity is based at the New Art Centre sculpture park and gallery. Our programme is led by experts and supported by artists who exhibit at Roche Court.
We organise a programme of tours, lectures, discussions, projects and workshops, all of which are open to students, teachers, community and specialist groups.
RCET was founded in 2005 and continues to grow year on year, providing a valuable educational resource on a regional, national and international basis.
The impact you had on our students’ engagement with contemporary art was outstanding. Your use of open questioning and age specific information really helped ensure all students left with a much more in-depth understanding of artist work and their intentions. – Teacher Testimonial

The Trust’s national public speaking competition, the ARTiculation Prize, invites sixth form students to give a short presentation on a work of art, artefact or architecture of their choice. Partner galleries and museums host regional heats across the country prior to the finals at the University of Cambridge. The Roche Court Educational Trust’s ARTiculation initiative is designed to stimulate students’ interest and understanding of art while developing individual thinking, observation, research, language and presentation skills.
