About us

Dartington Trust is home to two faculties, Schumacher College and Dartington Arts School, which – through undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and short courses – offer a radically transdisciplinary approach to education.

More broadly, our 1,200-acre site is a centre for learning, arts, ecology and social justice, with our student campus a key component of estate life.

Throughout our history, we have drawn leading artists and thinkers including Bernard Leach, composer Igor Stravinsky, cellist Jacqueline du Pre, musician Ravi Shankar, playwright Bernard Shaw and environmental activist Vandana Shiva.
