Derby Cathedral stands in the heart of a vibrant multi-faith city on the southern edge of one of England's most beautiful counties.

Learning is brought vividly to life in this beautiful Georgian building, on the site where Christian worship has taken place for more than a thousand years.

We believe visits by school , colleges and universities are an important aspect of the Cathedral's work, enabling students to learn in a special setting, where history, art, music spirituality and faith combine.

supported by our Cannon Missioner the team consists of a part time Education Officer (who is also a practising teacher) and a team of experienced volunteers, many of whom also have an education background.

We work to offer a friendly welcome to children of all ages and abilities and will adapt our work to suit their needs.

Why?

For children to learn and explore it is important for them to have the opportunity to experience sacred spaces first hand. The visit will give them the opportunity to begin to explore spirituality and develop a sense of awe and wonder.

The wonderful space also provides opportunities for work in curriculum areas other than RE. As well as the trails we offer for children we are happy to create a bespoke visit to suit the particular needs of your children.

A day of workshops, looking at life’s journey so far, and the opportunities that lie ahead.

Chance for pupils from our Church schools to reflect and prepare in the beautiful surroundings of the Cathedral.
