Ingestre Hall is home to the UK's only dedicated Residential Arts Centre.
Proudly part of Sandwell Residential Education Service, we deliver unique, transferable learning experiences through expressive and creative arts such as music, drama, visual art, dance and animation. An Ingestre Arts residential is unlike any other; in our inspirational setting, programmes are developed in partnership with schools and give pupils the opportunity to imagine, create, express themselves and realise their creative potential.
Our skilled practitioners translate high quality arts experiences to wider learning outcomes for pupils. Programmes are fully integrated with school curriculum and ethos, inclusive, designed to meet students' specific learning needs and planned so that learning is embedded and reinforced back at school.
The overall outcome was one that will stay with both the children and staff of Oakham for a long time. Both children and staff had a fantastic time – a fantastic way to start a new topic.

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.

To see the students transform before my eyes – that was AMAZING!
