Our centres are small, welcoming places that are your home for the visit.

"I loved Ingestre Hall because I feel like it’s a really great experience for someone who is thinking about taking one of the Arts as an option at school. Ingestre tutors encourage us to be more confident and share ideas. I loved choreographing some of the final dance. I also loved working with people I haven’t worked with before from different year groups. It was great to see teachers relaxed and get to know students that they didn’t know before.” 
 
Year 8 Pupil 
[An Ingestre Arts residential offers] “…consistent and significant value to our children at this critical stage in their school life. The Ingestre Arts experience equips the children to deal with the social and academic challenges of Year 6 and inspires teachers to develop their creative teaching and learning skills."
