Devonshire Educational Trust


The Devonshire Educational Trust at Chatsworth has a programme of arts engagement and outdoor learning that is focused on treasures from the collection and the built and natural environment allowing for the integration of the arts and creativity into STEM-based learning. STEM + Art = STEAM

The Devonshire Educational Trust is an independent charity that works in partnership with the Chatsworth House Trust, Bolton Abbey Estate and Lismore Castle to provide learning opportunities across the Devonshire Group. The charity was established in 2004 and exists to ensure that learning excellence and opportunities take place at Chatsworth, Bolton Abbey and Lismore Castle and are available offsite through outreach work and digital programmes.

 

Our vision

Making a positive difference to people’s lives by inspiring a love and understanding of art, heritage and the environment

Our mission

We create learning opportunities across the Devonshire Group, enriched by the essential qualities of our estates, to inspire current and future generations and affect how they live in and think about the world around them.
