Looking, thinking, speaking
The Roche Court Educational Trust (RCET) is based at the beautiful New Art Centre, Roche Court Sculpture Park near Salisbury in Wiltshire.
We work locally, nationally and internationally 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 through making connections across disciplines and cultures, inspired by the work of internationally acclaimed modern and contemporary artists.

Here at the Trust, whilst we are still unable to host schools and groups, we are busy preparing for their return in the Autumn Term. In the meantime, we will continue to share digital creative learning ideas for home and school.

In light of recent Government guidelines, we are making plans to welcome schools and groups back to the Park in the Autumn. We continue to review the situation, as our priority is the health and safety of the groups who visit. We will keep in touch and look forward to seeing you all again!

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.
