AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE

Agriculture is more than “farming or milking cows”. Agricultural Science covers production and business across the primary industry including the way society uses food.

Our junior school programme gives students a practical experience of animal and plant management practices. Year 9 is a taster course of one semester, introducing you to Horticulture and Business. Year 10 is a whole year option subject and is all about animal products.

Taking Agricultural Science as a senior subject will help you in any career connected with food production, the environment or compliance. It is a university accredited subject and will challenge you.

Our senior students get the chance to be involved in special projects when the occasion calls for it. They also attend industry-based workshops and conferences as and when they happen.

We quite often go on field trips eg Fieldays or to the Future Beef Competition.
