Why visit Derby Cathedral?

  • a unique learning space at the heart of a vibrant multi-faith city
  • a sense of awe and wonder
  • a welcome for people of all ages and abilities
  • a place of spirituality, art, music, faith and history
  • a specially designed programme to meet your group's needs

Education team

The team is led by Education Officer, Viv Lawrence, supported by the Canon Missioner, Elizabeth Thomson. They and many of the team of volunteers who work with them are experienced teachers. The Cathedral holds the Learning Outside the Classroom Award.

The Cathedral's educational programmes match the learning outcomes of the Derby and Derbyshire agreed syllabus for Religious Education. The Cathedral also offers unique learning opportunities for other curriculum areas - mathematics, history, art, engineering... Contact us to talk about your ideas!
