Myerscough College - Myerscough’s partnership with Ullswater Community College, in Penrith in Cumbria, recognises the importance of the future of the agriculture and animal management sectors to the county, and how vital it is that the next generation have the best possible opportunity to obtain high level qualifications locally. This partnership, which has already been welcomed by leaders and high-profile figures in both fields, will ensure continuity of study for learners in agriculture and animal studies affected by the recent closure of Newton Rigg College, as well as increasing options for other students in Cumbria, who perhaps previously felt full-time study so far from home was too much of an obstacle.
