We’re excited to announce that we will be welcoming HRH The Prince of Wales to our Newton Rigg College campus on Monday 26th March.
During the visit, HRH The Prince of Wales will be spending time at the College’s National Centre for the Uplands to meet staff and students at Low Beckside Farm, Penrith.
There he will see the College’s state-of-the-art Sheep Husbandry Centre, which is helping to safeguard the future of uplands farming and meet students demonstrating their skills, including lambing and sheepdog training.
Catherine Dixon, Chief Executive of Askham Bryan College said: “We are looking forward to welcoming The Prince of Wales to our hill farm. Our students are the future of upland farming and they are excited about demonstrating their new skills. Our Sheep Husbandry Centre incorporates the latest computer technology ensuring that our students can learn the tradition of upland farming whilst incorporating modern farming techniques. The Prince’s interest in uplands farming is well known and we do hope that he will enjoy what will be a very special day for us.”

A huge congratulations to our Animal Management lecturer, Victoria Nolan, following a great success at this year’s Crufts.
Vicki has been building up to the first show of the year with her two beautiful Bearded Collies since before Christmas and attended the internationally renowned event last Thursday and Friday.
Midas (Talraz Nuts in May) was awarded 1st in a strong Mid Limit class and Lacey (Talraz White Lace) was awarded 3rd in her Good Citizen class.
Two excellent results, well done to Vicki and all the students that helped to maintain the dog’s fitness and coat throughout the year!
We were pleased to welcome the Right Honorable Anne Milton, Apprenticeships and Skills Minister, on campus to find out more about our apprenticeships, meet our students and visit our state-of-the-art facilities for National Apprenticeship Week.
