Staff from Plumpton College, The Netherfield Centre and student Ollie Archer took part recently in a 5k run for mental health awareness week.

Students studying on the rural pathways programme also designed certificates for the children who took part. Plumpton College at Netherfield is the College’s longest established out-centre and is situated in the east of the County just 3.5 miles from Battle. The centre provides a range of courses and experience to students from the Hastings and Rother areas. Provision is based on a small farm called Ivyland Farm and ranges from Entry level courses through to Level 2 and apprentices. Many students attending Ivyland Farm progress to the main site to further their studies.

The College hosts free taster days for those at school in years 9 to 11, the next series of taster days is planned from Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th June. Taster days in agriculture and rural pathways are available at The Netherfield Centre during 23rd and 24th June. Then on Thursday 25th June, Plumpton College main site is holding an informal information afternoon/evening for enquirers to find out about the wide range of landbased courses, training and apprenticeships.
