Berkshire College of Agriculture is a further education agricultural college based at Hall Place in Burchetts Green at Hurley, near Maidenhead, in Berkshire. It was formed in 1949 as the Berkshire Institute of Agriculture.[1]

Courses[edit]

The college was built to provide a training centre for agricultural workers, and has expanded to offer work with animals and construction.[1] The college is located on 450 acres (180 ha) of farm land, with residential accommodation for over 70 students.[1]

Catchment area[edit]

As this is a further education college, there is no legal catchment area, but due to the college's rural location, an extensive bus service is run to many towns and villages including Amersham, Beaconsfield, Bushey, Bracknell, Camberley, The Chalfonts, Gerrards Cross, Great Missenden, Henley, High Wycombe, Maidenhead, Reading, Rickmansworth, Slough, Thame, Uxbridge, Wallingford, Windsor, Watford and Wokingham.
