Plumpton College is located at the foot of the South Downs, close to Lewes, nine miles from Brighton in the middle of the South Downs National Park.
The college provides a perfect study environment, with excellent practical and demonstration facilities for students across a very wide range of land-based courses.
The extensive and successful range provides courses for school based 14 to 16-year-olds , programmes for 16 to 19-year-olds , a range of degree level subjects and diverse courses for employers and adults. Higher Education is provided in partnership with the University of Brighton.
Substantial investment has taken place in recent years to provide buildings to accommodate the College’s recent expansion in student numbers. New buildings include libraries, classrooms, an agricultural machinery and blacksmithing centre, additional residential accommodation, an animal care and veterinary nursing centre, dairy teaching and equine teaching facilities.
The college was graded good at its recent Ofsted inspection with several outstanding areas which included Safeguarding and Care for students, work with schools and the Agriculture, Countryside and Gamekeeping provision.
