Welcome to Newton Rigg College - We’re proud to be part of Askham Bryan College the fastest growing land based college in the country, thanks to our range of existing courses, great teaching and fantastic facilities.
Whilst agriculture and land management will always remain at the very heart of Newton Rigg, we have listened to the local community and are now introducing a wider range of general further educational courses to meet the needs of young people in Cumbria and the north of England.
Newton Rigg provides students with the opportunity to enter and progress through various levels of study from foundation to further and higher education as well as highly regarded work-based apprenticeships routes.
We continue to invest and improve the facilities on campus to enable students to maximise their learning, and I am personally thrilled to see our new multi-million pound Dairy Unit taking shape, whilst always looking towards improving the wider College experience in and around our campus to help our students develop as confident individuals.
Students who graduate from our College are ‘work ready’. We work closely with industry to help shape the most appropriate courses as we strive to provide our students with the best possible chance of progression in the future.
Being a residential college, Newton Rigg offers students from across the UK and beyond an opportunity to share in the high quality learning experience, specialist facilities and stunning surroundings of Cumbria. Our staff, all of whom have strong industry grounding in their specialist subject, have high expectations of each of our students. We pride ourselves on our dedicated lecturers who help students overcome barriers and become a success on their course, while making sure they fully enjoy their time at College.
I look forward to welcoming you at Newton Rigg at the start of your journey that hopefully one day will lead to my shaking your hand at the awards ceremony upon successful completion of your course.
