Nestled in the Lincolnshire countryside, just outside of Lincoln, Riseholme College encompasses the Riseholme Park campus and Showground campus, just two miles away from each other.
Over the last 70 years, investments in facilities and resources has seen the learning environment at Riseholme College go from strength to strength.
Our Showground Campus includes classrooms, science labs, an animal management facility, agriculture and engineering workshops, a learning resource centre, refectory and student services office. Phase two, opened in September 2016 and includes a Sport and Health Science Centre, complete with gym, multi-use sports hall and 4G flood-lit pitch, and an Agri-Tech, Health and Nutrition Centre.
We have recently expanded our Animal Management Unit to include even more exotic species for students to work with, and the agriculture and equine facilities at our Riseholme Park campus are undergoing complete refurbishment.
The improvements include:
- A new ‘roundhouse’ to house Lincolnshire Red Cattle
- A new bull pen
- General improvements to farm buildings, including extensions
- Extension of the outdoor Equine Arena
- New surfaces for all arenas
- General improvements to equine buildings
- A new student welfare centre.
In addition, Riseholme’s status as a centre of excellence for high level skills training as part of the government’s multi-million pound Institutes of Technology (IoT) initiative is generating further investment in facilities and resources.
Such facilities give us the platform to deliver an unrivalled range of hands-on, practical courses which give our students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.
