Through the generous support of The Eridge Trust, we are delighted to be able to offer a small number of bursaries to enable a visit for pupils to the New Art Centre during the Summer and Autumn terms 2019. The Eridge Trust is a charitable trust whose purpose is to encourage young people to enjoy and appreciate visual art.

Bursaries of up to £250 are available to support the cost of:

  • transport to and from the sculpture park

and / or

  • the entry cost per pupil (please see information about our pricing here). Please note that the maximum number of pupils we can welcome per visit is 60, subject to Trust staff availability on the date requested

If you wish to apply for a bursary, please email explaining in no more than 200 words:

  • how much you require to support your visit (up to £250)
  • why you need the bursary (please quantify with factual evidence / statistics about your school’s particular need)
  • how the bursary will be used, including the number of pupils that will benefit


Please note that if you are successful in your application, there are two requirements:

  1. That a member of senior staff and/or a governor accompanies the visit. This is to enable senior staff / governors to observe first-hand the experiences of the pupils during the visit with the intention that funding for annual visits will be sourced by the school, thereby creating a sustainable model.
  2. That the experience of the visit is quantified through a short written evaluation by the lead member of staff for our report to The Eridge Trust.

Please note that bursaries are allocated on the basis of need and all decisions made by The Roche Court Educational Trust are final. You will be contacted by email within two weeks of your application.
