Bicton College is a leading land-based college set within an area of outstanding natural beauty in the heart of Devon. The grounds comprise 200 hectares of open parkland and rolling countryside; a majestic Georgian manor house overlooks the beautiful lake and sits alongside the latest in modern facilities and equipment. Bicton College is located a mere five minutes from the south coast with its selection of beaches, towering cliffs and seaside towns, and twenty minutes from the regional capital of Exeter. It is the College's stated mission to strive for excellence in the delivery of land-based and environmental education to Devon’s rural businesses, individuals and communities.
At Bicton College, we offer a whole range of courses for different age groups, studying in a variety of ways - on a full time basis, a part time basis, whilst you are working, whilst on an apprenticeship, or even if you are still at school and want to start studying here sooner.
Bicton College is leading the way in providing schools with the opportunity to partner in specialist land-based 14-16 programmes. We offer students in Years 10 and 11 the opportunity to study a college course alongside their existing GCSE subjects at school. A 14-16 Programme in Partnership with Bicton College will enhance your school’s programme with the benefit of specialist knowledge, realistic working environments and facilities. We also boast a BHS Approved equestrian centre, mixed farm, high ropes course, climbing wall, gym, swimming pool, lake, vast grounds, gardens and animal care centre.
