Since its foundation in 1952 The Attingham Trust, an educational charitable trust, has enjoyed outstanding success within the worlds of arts and heritage.  The alumni of its courses make up an influential, international network of professionals, many of whom represent major cultural institutions.

The Trust currently runs three annual residential courses, The Attingham Summer School, The Attingham Study Programme and Royal Collection Studies and, in alternate years, two non-residential courses, French Eighteenth-Century Studies and The London House Course. These courses are highly regarded by museums, universities, historic preservation societies and architectural practices throughout the world.


As a result of Covid-19, The Attingham Trust has sadly had to postpone or cancel all its courses running in 2020: The Attingham Summer School, Attingham Study Programme, Royal Collection Studies, Libraries course and French Eighteenth-Century Studies. All candidates have been notified and offered the opportunity to defer their places to next year. They will be contacted again in early autumn. All course details for 2021 will be available on the website in early October and new applications will be encouraged. Closing date for receipt of all applications will be 27 January 2021. 
We hope you are keeping well during this unprecedented time and send best wishes to you all.
