Berkshire College of Agriculture is a further education agricultural college at Hall Place in Burchetts Green, Hurley, near Maidenhead, Berkshire. It was founded in 1949, as the Berkshire Institute of Agriculture.
The college was built to provide a training centre for agricultural workers. It has expanded to offer work with animals and construction. The college is located on 450 acres (180 ha) of farm land, with residential accommodation for over 70 students.
As this is a further education college, there is no legal catchment area, but its rural location causes an extensive bus service to be 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.
